Michelle Lewis Michelle Lewis picked up her father’s acoustic guitar at the age of 14 and quickly abandoned interest in everything else. She honed her songwriting at Berklee College of Music in her hometown of Boston, and went on to tour the United States behind her first album, This Time Around (2004). She has been a long time collaborator with producer Anthony J. Resta (Elton John, Duran Duran, Shawn Mullins). Their work has included the release of her Broken (2009) and Paris (2011) EPs, and most recently her second full-length album, The Parts Of Us That Still Remain (2014),with songs co-written by Nashville favorite Robby Hecht and LA sound designer Conan Skyrme.
Megan Burtt was born and bred in Denver, CO. “I’ve always written songs,” she says. “I took piano lessons when I was young, but when I picked up my dad’s old classical guitar, things took off.” Inspired by Joni Mitchell’s Blue, Burtt taught herself to play, dreaming of a musical career. “I didn’t know any girls who played music, but Blue, Bonnie Raitt’s Nick of Time and the women on the MTV videos I saw, let me know it was possible.” “I’m not really a pop singer,” Megan Burtt says. “I just want to make music that’s accessible, while still being true to myself. When I started writing songs, I didn’t know the shapes the fingers were supposed to make on the guitar, so I made up my own chords. I think that’s why I have a unique way of hearing and composing.”
