In some ways I'm channeling my inner Bob Dylan, maybe Highway 61 Revisited ", Jon laughs. "Dylan embraced both acoustic and electric guitar styles and I relate to that.

Megan Wolf is the next big voice of modern pop! Drawing on early influences like Stevie Nicks and Gloria Estefan, Megan marries her melodic songwriting with thoughtful lyrics to captivate her listeners and evoke feelings of empowerment and positivity. Her performance career began at the ripe young age of 5, participating in local theatre groups and musicals, in her hometown of Gloucester, MA, but Megan always knew she would be on bigger stages, leading her own productions as lead singer and musician. For as long as she can remember she has had one single vision in mind, one dream to follow: command the stage, engage the audience, and transform through music.
Her debut album, "That Girl", produced by Electric Factory X, is a testament to that vision. Each song is a personal diary entry and an intimate admission into the world of Megan. Honest, raw, and at times provocative, "That Girl" is a compilation of songs crafted alongside fellow collaborator and producer, Jon Butcher. Megan describes the writing and recording process as "liberating and confessional, a place to both celebrate one's triumphs as well as redeem one's faults. A way to settle the karmic score." Megan hopes to inspire her audiences to meet their own challenges with courage and truth. She is a highly sought after studio vocalist known for her unique tone and improvisational capability.
Megan's passion in the studio is equally met on-stage during her captivating live performances. She is completely in the moment; present with every note, moved by every beat, and touched by every chord. On stage, Megan is deeply engaged in a dance with the music and channels the emotion of a song through physical expression and her soul driven vocals. "The young woman leaves everything on stage...feels every note...the girl simply rocks!", Michael Sparks Keegan, world renowned photographer. Her powerful stage presence has led Megan to many note-worthy opportunities playing alongside "Boston" guitarist Barry Goudreau and most recently earned her a spot as backing vocalist joining Joe Cocker original band members Cliff Goodwin, Deric Dyer, and Mitch Chakour, in their legacy project, "Cocker Rocks". Members of Cocker Rocks have quickly grown to become family to Megan and she is thrilled to join them on the road for their upcoming European Tour February-March 2018.
Megan is currently booking studio sessions and performances for Fall 2017 through Summer 2018. Please direct all booking inquires to her management team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

GRAHAM NEILL / BAND OF WOLVES
Like fellow Englishman and guitarist Peter Green, Graham Neill’s imprint on the London music scene of the late 1960’s is as storied as it is (appropriately) enigmatic. Born Graham Michael Neil in London 1951, he and a ’64 Gibson ES 335 found themselves opening for the ROLLING STONES in Hyde Park 1969 before coming to the US.
Since, Graham has made his way around an atypical circuit for a blues man- Singapore, S of France and the Cook Islands. Graham is now joined by fellow Wolves Steve Carter [drums], Jeff Keithline [bass] and BOW co-conspirator Leighton Wolffe [guitar]. The debut Cd, GRAHAM NEILL/ BAND OF WOLVES is quintessential English blues guitar at it’s most authentic. Punctuated by Graham’s unmistakable graveled voice, under the ethereal tutelage of Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Howlin’ Wolf and Albert King. Ladies and Gentlemen, the new Cd by UK Blues guitarist GRAHAM NEILL, recorded in Technicolor and VistaVision. GRAHAM NEILL/ BAND OF WOLVES the new Cd, coming to America soon.
GLYMPSES is an American rock band from Boston Massachusetts consisting of members Jude Payne (bass), Tim Corbin (drums) and GLYMPSES founders the unstoppable Bowen Brothers, Ian Bowen (vocs) and Ryan Bowen (guitars).
“We’ve been friends since we were kids in grade school says Ian, the oldest GLYMPSE at 19yrs. “ We really dig the music of the 2nd British invasion, bands like Zeppelin, the Who. They were intense, came from a pure place and wrote music that’s forever. And it all rocked hard!”
GLYMPSES self-titled first record consists of ten strong tracks which make the equally strong case, these guys do indeed rock. Says guitarist and primary songwriter Ryan, “ We believe in what we do. We believe in each other. We can’t wait to hit the road in the US, Europe and the world to show what we can do! There’s a lot of kids who dig where we come from and what our influences are. Amoung our friends the guitar is( still) king! “
The GLYMPSES debut record was produced by JON BUTCHER for EFX and recorded @ BANG Recording Studios in Gloucester MA and at QDivision Studios in Boston. It’s big, bad and bold. And GLYMPSES make no apologies.
Check out GLYMPSES in 2019. You just might believe.
