“I joined the MU about two years ago and have made such use of my membership since then.

“The MU is an incredible tool for people in this industry and provides much needed support when it comes to legal advice, insurance, performance contracts and overall confusion!

“It’s great to know that this kind of support exists and I really believe every UK musician should take advantage of its services.”

O’Neill is currently working on her second full-length studio album, set for full release in 2020. This will follow on from her last album release, ‘Ghost of You’ (June 2018) which hit number one on the iTunes singer/songwriter charts in the UK and Ireland.

This year sees Megan taking the main stage at the British Country Music Festival and Dixie Fields Festival – two brand new festivals launching in 2019 due to the demand for more country music events in the UK.Find out more about Megan O’Neill’s work on her website.
