Megan Burtt

Megan Burtt was born and bred in Denver, CO.  Ive always written songs, she says. I took piano lessons when I was young, but when I picked up my dads old classical guitar, things took off.  Inspired by Joni Mitchells Blue, Burtt taught herself to play, dreaming of a musical career. I didnt know any girls who played music, but Blue, Bonnie Raitts Nick of Time and the women on the MTV videos I saw, let me know it was possible.

After high school, she moved to Boston to attend the Berklee School of Music. There she made two EPs she calls her practice records. As soon as I met other musicians, I put together a band and started playing. We took every gig we could get. I loved being on stage with such talented players. It developed my ear, made my guitar playing more solid and made me a confident bandleader and performer.

When she graduated from Berklee, Burtt moved to Mississippi to investigate the roots of American blues music. While there, she contracted a potentially fatal disease, but she never stopped singing or performing, and eventually found her way to full recovery. She played music in Vietnam for a couple of months, then returned to the States to record It Aint Love, a 12 song collection she made with the friends that still make up the backbone of her recording band   Louis Cato, guitarist Adam Tressler and James Williams. One of the songs on the album, Waiting for June, won Best Song at the 2010 Rocky Mountain Folk Festival and the 2011 Kerrville New Folk Competition.

In 2013, Burtt began writing and preproduction on the songs that would become The Bargain and continued annual holiday tours of the Pennsylvania prison system with her band. The maximum security inmates we play for are some of my favorite audiences. Its incredible to perform for people who are truly grateful youre there.

After two years of careful production, The Bargain arrives to show off Catos creative production and Burtts bold vocals. Its more honest and evolved than my first album, Burtt says. Im beyond excited to start sharing these songs with my fans. Im tying a bow around this album, knowing that I put everything I had to give into it.
