Megan O’Neill, one of the UK’s most exciting Americana artists, releases her new single Why I Need You on Friday 13 October.  Why I Need You is a stunning ballad, filled with subtly and strength.  Set against a beautiful piano backing, it showcases an incredibly talented artist with a stunning voice.  The release comes just days before she performs at Manchester’s Gullivers on Monday ‘In The Round’ with Emma Stevens, James Fredholm and Mark Sullivan.

Tipped as one of the top Americana songwriters in the UK at the Americana Music Awards, she released her debut EP Coming Home in May 2015, reaching #1 in Irish country charts & was awarded ‘UK EP of the Year’ by public vote through W21Music. In 2016 she released a single (‘Can’t put a Price on That’) through Decca Records with Ben Earle of The Shires and in February 2017 her mini-album with 6-piece band Megan and the Common Threads was recorded at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studios with the legendary Guy Fletcher (Dire Straits, Roxy Music, Mark Knopfler) producing.
