Megan Slankard

Though only in her 20's, singer-songwriter Megan Slankard has independently sold over 30,000 copies of four independently released CDs.

Megan’s newest release, A Token Of The Wreckage, is "an edgy alt-rock release that is a breath of fresh air" (Maverick Magazine), “gleaming, grooving, and gritty” (Minor 7th), with "thoughtful construction and clever wordplay" (Performer Magazine). The CD, which was recorded with help from David Bryson (Counting Crows) and Jerry Becker (Train), held a spot in the 10-best selling albums on CD Baby for weeks.

Though only in her 20's, singer-songwriter Megan Slankard has independently sold over 30,000 copies of four independently released CDs.

Megan’s newest release, A Token Of The Wreckage, is "an edgy alt-rock release that is a breath of fresh air" (Maverick Magazine), “gleaming, grooving, and gritty” (Minor 7th), with "thoughtful construction and clever wordplay" (Performer Magazine). The CD, which was recorded with help from David Bryson (Counting Crows) and Jerry Becker (Train), held a spot in the 10-best selling albums on CD Baby for weeks.

The singer-songwriter toured her way across the US and back twice over the past year and a half, to support her newest record, returning home three times to San Francisco, CA to sold out shows with her band in the grand ballroom of the venerable Swedish American Hall and the Café du Nord.

In 2012 she and the band also opened for Train during Train’s CA 37 Tour kick-off week in San Francisco. Megan performed the duet for Train’s hit “Bruises” with Train’s front man, Pat Monahan, and sang back-up vocals for the kick-off week shows. Her busy year included performances at the 75th Anniversary of the San Francisco Golden Gate Bridge and the Red Rock Women’s Festival in Utah, and singing the National Anthem in the San Francisco Giant’s stadium to the team's 42,000 fans.

Megan is currently writing new songs for her next album release for 2013.
