Megan McCauley

There are a handful of artists that honestly and truly know what it means to sing from the heart and from the soul. Whether or not these artists sing about unrequited love, raise their fists against injustice, or expose our innermost fears and desires like a raw nerve, there’s a fire in their soul, a bitter tasting spit salivating from their lips, and a magnetic force in their grip. Sharpening the tart edge of her tongue comes naturally to Megan McCauley.

There are a handful of artists that honestly and truly know what it means to sing from the heart and from the soul. Whether or not these artists sing about unrequited love, raise their fists against injustice, or expose our innermost fears and desires like a raw nerve, there’s a fire in their soul, a bitter tasting spit salivating from their lips, and a magnetic force in their grip. Sharpening the tart edge of her tongue comes naturally to Megan McCauley.

It was Janis Joplin that did it for Megan. “She was glamorous and sexy in her own right,” she says. “She had a raw sexuality while also being very strong and independent. If she wanted to, she’d go up on stage smashed. She was completely liberal in every way. I was and still am enamored by that. If it wasn’t for Janis, there would have never been a match that lit the fire in me..

McCauley, much like her idol, offers no apologies. This redheaded siren with tattoos and piercings is anything but conventional. The Ohio native is nineteen, convincingly brash and impressively iron-willed. Megan is wildly undisguised simply because she knows no other way. Raised by a single mother, she was fulfilled by compulsive visits to the conveniently located Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. “I used to hang out at the Hall when I got older. Every weekend I would buy a new album of the inductees in the gift shop. One day I bought a Big Brother and The Holding Company album and it just floored me. I remember locking myself in my room for weeks until I could sing like Janis,” adds Megan.
