Sweet Megg Trio

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Monday 11 th September 2023

The Pheasantry (Chelsea)

Sweet Megg is a vocalist born and bred in New York City but now based in Nashville TN.  Her performances seamlessly blend early jazz, blues, french chanson, western swing, and the occasional original into a cocktail that is completely individual yet has something for everyone. She also sings for "Post Modern Jukebox" and has toured and still is touring with them in UK and Europe.  This is her only solo gig in the UK. Expect to hear tunes from Julie London, Billy Holiday, Edith Piaf, Patsy Cline, Kate Bush and maybe even Tom Waits!  

Expect to be entertained, expect anything!

"Sweet Megg" refreshes these time-honored songs rather than clones the originals; her agility with modern swing feels gives her vocals a decidedly individualistic flair. "

Suzanne Lorge, Downbeat Magazine

Inspired by Bob Wills, she is taking the idea of mixing country and jazz to the next level.

“I’ve been building a sound combining my knowledge and experience in the old-time jazz world of New York with the country music I love and have learned so much about living down in Nashville. Bob Wills loved jazz and I believe his vision was to meld the two genres of his era creating Western swing. I’m just expanding on that idea by not only taking jazz & country ideas from the 30s & 40s but also integrating ideas from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and so on”.

The only missing puzzle piece now is to reintroduce her original music to the mix. Her next album Bluer than Blue is in the works and will be released in the fall of 2023. It includes an original by Megg and moving forward she plans to keep writing tunes that hint at the classic sounds of country music while leaving spaces for the freedom and improvisation of jazz.
