Megan Washington

Last night at the "Spics & Spectacular" at the Horden Pavilion in Sydney was great fun but more about that in a later post.

One of the highlights mentioned from the seven years of the show was the performance of Megan Washington performing in the game segment Substitute. For those who have not seen it or for those who just want to see it again here is the link:-

Following that episode of the show her EP shot immediately to No.1 on the Australian iTunes download chart. I rushed out and purchased the actual CD "How To Tame Lions" rather than the download but the music is just as beautiful.

Totally in keeping with her somewhat alternative image it was some time before a full album was release. Fortunately the Australian release of "I Believe You Liar" contained a bonus disc with tracks for the various EPs that had previously been released for a total of 21 tracks plus a video.

To describe Megan's voice as Amazing is not an exaggeration. For such a soft voice it has qualities and what seems like even different dimensions that other voices don't have. Then there are the songs themselves. Introspective lyrics and varied instrumentation that could distract from the voice somehow enhance it.

I'm still drawn to two tracks from the "How to Tame Lions" EP as my favorites:-  Teenage Fury and Cement. But all of the other tracks have been given a share of her talent.

So have a listen yourself....
