Megan Burtt-Overcoming a Life Scare

This week on Front Range Radio I am featuring the music of Megan Burtt.  She first started playing instruments when she was six “experimenting with melodies and rhythms on her grandmothers piano.”  She won a song writing competition at the age of 16.  She first performed when she was 17 at a coffee shop where she had a two-hour set and had to play every song she knew to fill the time. There was no turning back after that. Life threw her a curveball after she moved to Mississippi to learn the blues.  Megan went through a life threatening illness.  She moved back to Colorado, with the illness behind her she stepped out to record her first full length CD “It Ain’t Love” that was released in 2010.

I asked Megan what she feels when she is performing; she loves performing live Megan said, she loves connecting with people live in front of her, and there is nothing like the energy one gets between the audience and the band.  It is her preferred method of performing.  Megan pointed out that being an independent musician there is so much to do to run a small business that performing live is what reminds her that she can spend 80 hours on a computer and have it be ok because she will get to perform a great show at some point.

Her CD is a good one, Vintage Guitar Magazine in June of 2010, described the CD as “Dark Pop with a heady country tinge and rhythmically charged under layer” The CD has some good guitar riffs, great vocals, and lots of emotion.  Don’t believe me, just check out the opening notes for the song “Pay it Now” in the video below

Or the opening riff in “Habit”, which I think is a great video.  A behind the scene, if you will, day in the life of Megan and her band The Cure for Love

Megan is currently working on a follow-up CD, that should be released later this year. In the meantime you can download “It Ain’t Love” from iTunes.  To learn more about Megan visit her website  Please tune in Sunday night at 6:00pm Mountain Time to Front Range Radio at to hear songs from the CD and part of the interview I did with this talented artist.
