Irish writer / performer Megan O’Neill has just had one of her songs – Don’t You – selected for hit ABC TV show Nashville. The song will feature on the December 3rd episode. Nashville – currently in its 3rd season – is produced jointly by Lionsgate / ABC and has been a huge ratings hit in the US. It has also proved very popular in the UK, where country music is currently witnessing a surge in interest.
Originally from County Kildare, Ireland, Megan O’Neill is one of the most exciting new entrants to the world of country pop music. A previous UCD Choral Scholar and long-time musician and song-writer, Megan is no stranger to the world of performing arts and has been working hard to hone her craft since moving from Ireland to Nashville in 2012. She was signed for management earlier in 2014 by Irish management company Milestone Management, who also represent well known Irish pop duo Heathers.
Megan’s music is a fresh mix of modern country and pop, with a fusion of distinctly Irish elements making for a very unique sound. Currently based in London, Megan has written with many notable Nashville writers such as Marc Beeson, Billy Austin, John Edwards, Brian Maher, Erik Halbig, Bruce Bouton, Mark Narmore and countless others. She returns to Music City as often as possible and indeed her most recent visit was just a few weeks ago.
These are busy times for Megan as industry plans get finalised for her first international commercial release in 2015. A taster of the type of material which will be on that release is now available to stream on Megan’s websites. In a move indicative of the broader musical direction Megan is developing in addition to her strong Country roots, the three tracks just recently recorded were produced by long-time Kodaline collaborator Philip Magee.
