Meghan Patrick - Bio:
Born and raised in Bowmanville, Ontario,
Meghan Patrick has dedicated her entire life to music, wanting it to be more
than just a passion. “I was drawn to playing guitar so I could start writing
music to go along with the words I was writing. I wanted to be self-sufficient
as a creative artist.” It wasn’t long until Meghan had mastered both
electric and acoustic guitar as well as the banjo.
Prior to setting out as a solo artist,
Meghan was the lead singer of the popular roots act The Stone Sparrows. A
newgrass/bluegrass band, The Stone Sparrows released an EP and a full-length
album before the members parted ways amicably in 2013 after playing their
second Boots and Hearts Festival.
The songs Meghan writes are about real-life situations and are both
personal and autobiographical. They are story songs, but they are her stories
which infuse the material with an authenticity and sincerity that is palpable.
“I have to feel connected to the music, especially when I am playing live.
The emotions I write about are real and audiences know when you are being true
to yourself. Performing my own music and forming a bond with my audience is
what I do this for. And that’s the most enjoyable thing in the world.”
