Bio

Megs Emrys’ spirit shines out, injecting her fresh acoustic style with a raw and passionate edge. Her original songs, sung in English and Spanish, effortlessly meld the Latin American sounds she encountered while living in Peru, with her folk and rock roots. 

Led by her clear, powerful vocals and accompanied by guitar or charango and violin, her melodies ring out and her poetic words delve into the unknown and surface with a glimmer of hope.

Megs plays as an acoustic solo artist, as a duo with violin or with her band to create a full folk-rock sound.  

After five years performing with her band 'VII & Megan' in Peru, they recorded their 12-track album 'Mama Pacha' which was released in 2015.

Upon returning to the UK, she moved to Bristol where she has proceeded to perform her songs across the city and dive into the UK festival scene. In just a year and half, she has performed at popular venues such as Grain Barge, St George's crypt, The Gallimuafry, Thekla and The Fleece and supported numerous charity events such as OXJAM and Shelter fundraisers. She also performed at American artist, Theaster Gate's Sanctum project which was dubbed "the most ambitious art project of the year" by the Guardian.
