      Megon McDonough is a fabulous singer and songwriter. Her music not only deserves a national audience, it demands it. Wonderful!

      Technically perfect, and interactive, couple that with an amazingly talented artist, and you have a perfect Concert Window. Megon McDonough has long been a favorite of mine, and to have a chance to see such a wonderfully intimate performance was a serious high.

Born in Illinois, a working musician since the age of 14 and one of nine theatrically inclined children, Megon began to focus all her energies on her passion for music at the ripe old age of 11 after tragedy struck her home twice in one year. First, she lost her father and three months later her college-bound sister died in a car accident. While dealing with the grief and trying to focus on her schoolwork, the nuns at her Catholic school encouraged Megon to be still and “listen for the calling.” She willingly opened her heart and divine inspiration rushed in from Liverpool in the form of the “Fab Four” immediately followed by an all out British Invasion. Just as Megon professes in one of her original songs Beatle Love, “The Beatles saved my life.”

It was difficult for “good little girls from the Midwest” to make it in the Rock ‘n Roll scene during the ’60s and ’70s. However, there was room for Megon in the Folk Music world of Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins and Joan Baez. By the time she turned 16, she had a record deal with Mercury Records and, at 17, she left home for Los Angeles to join the John Denver tour, including Carnegie Hall, a deal with RCA, seven solo albums and an incredible recording career.

In addition to spending time with her husband Greg and their son Denvir, Megon has been enjoying a fruitful career as singer, songwriter and comedic actress. She has appeared in numerous theater productions including, Pump Boys and Dinettes, Beehive and a box office record-breaking starring role in Always, Patsy Cline, for which she was nominated for the Joseph Jefferson Award. She won an ACE Cable TV award for singing the theme song of an HBO Olympic ice-skating special and has recorded for a Danielle Steel Made for TV movie. She also has a growing business as a life coach and inspirational speaker.
