Song Premiere: Megan Slankard - What It's Worth

The San Francisco based alternative folk rock artist, Megan Slankard is gearing up to release a new album entitled Running on Machinery, due out on May 19th. We're very excited to be able to premiere the title track from the record!

Running on Machinery is a power-packed folk track that tucks away its folk sensibilities deep beneath an outgoing, heavy alternative pop rock compositional style. If you listen closely enough, you can hear that the song still encompasses an acoustic guitar rhythm deep within it. Slankard's voice is strong and confident and we really enjoy that she took a chance with this track to do something that is not traditional. It doesn't matter what genre she decides to put herself under, Megan Slankard exhibits that she understands great music production that puts out a really strong final recording.

A lot of independent artists like to make awesome bedroom recordings, but that style isn't for everyone. Slankard put out a high quality studio recording that was produced by Alex Wong. However a Bay Area artist chooses to express themselves, we're all for it.

   

Megan Slankard John Brodeur and Roem Baur Perform at The Lost Church TONIGHT

Come join Megan Slankard, John Brodeur and Roem Baur for an intimate night of acoustic music at The Lost Church in San Francisco tonight.

Megan Slankard writes endearing acoustic pop songs with a gritty edge. Her imaginative lyricism and americana-tinged modern-pop melodies form a sound that is reminiscent of Sheryl Crowe coupled with the eccentricities of Tori Amos. Roem Baur is a classically trained tenor who’s got a whole lot of soul. Rorm Baur draws inspiration from the classic funk and R&B records of the 60’s to make music that is both fresh and familiar. Known for his energetic live performances with his full band, this acoustic in-the-round show gives him a chance to highlight his operatic vocal range. New York-based songwriter John Brodeur plays soulful, melodic music ranging from introspective folk songs to crunchy guitar rock. His songs explore the existential longing of modern life while always remaining immediate and tuneful. In a live solo setting, Brodeur is a master of looping and layering his performance to create rich textures and a full band sound. - Ethan Varian
