'GIMME' AVAILABLE TO STREAM ON SPOTIFY HERE:
One to watch for 2019, Megan Davies is bringing her unique alt-pop style to the UK shortly, blending together a mix of commercial pop, indie folk and experimental rock.
She has just revealed a special acoustic video of her track ‘Gimme’. The original version debuted on nine Spotify playlists across the globe upon its release in November and was hotly tipped by the likes of Billboard. The release comes ahead of her UK and European headline tour in February and March.
Megan first gained traction online which led to her becoming a YouTube sensation after building up views and subscribers in their millions with her creative acoustic covers and mashups. Tracks like her 3-song mashup ‘See You Again/ Love Me Like You Do/ Sugar’ has had over 60 million video plays and reached #1 on both the US and Global Spotify Viral 50 charts.
She’s now amassed over 190 million views and 1.3 million subscribers on her YouTube channel and she maintains over 6 million Spotify streams each month.
Her influencer status led to collaborations with the likes of the Red Cross & American Cancer Society as well as performing for Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendeya and the creators of The Greatest Showman then attending the film’s premiere in New York.
Megan’s first dose of original music was the 2017 debut Bad Poetry EP which was released independently and has clocked up over 3 million Spotify streams with the title track getting a lot of love from Sirius XM.
Last year she went on to release the songs ‘Doesn’t Matter’, which won 1st Place in the USA Songwriting Competition - Pop Category, the popular streaming track ‘Moonlight’ and her latest single ‘Gimme’ giving a taste of what’s to come. She also finished off last year with the beautiful festive number ‘Blue Christmas’.
As well as her ever-growing online following, Megan is also rapidly building her presence on the live scene having recently toured across the US supporting YouTube heavyweights Boyce Avenue and has shared the stage with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Madilyn Bailey and Noah Guthrie and Striking Matches.
She is now excited to play for her UK and European fans next month with her special guest opener and UK native, Alex Francis. There will be a whole host of exciting things to come for 2019.
