Monarch Presents: Megan Diana
John Walsh, Winston Taylor
Songwriting driven by vintage keyboards, Megan Diana loves a Wurlitzer and Fender Rhodes – especially when put thru an echo pedal. She layers her lush voice in choral layers – going atmospheric at times and then all at once back to the center of her chest in a whisper. Her debut record – Women in My Head – written and dedicated to the important women in her life – (her beloved Grandma Mac graces the cover) allows her to bring in her French Horn in equal parts Canadian Brass and Chet Baker (if he played the F Horn). Some songs lean towards Dark Americana Noir, others clearly constructed pop – with a full band (and new her pedal steel player) things start to turn Western Flavor Florence Welch and have given life to her new genre – DREAM COUNTRY DISCO
Singer, songwriter and guitarist Winston Taylor is a New Orleans transplant with a
diverse sound. He celebrates love and life through catchy melodies, and sultry
grooves. He loops beats, and builds transient melodies over them, creating a
soundscape that feels like a dream. Some of his songs sound like vintage pop,
others lean more towards southern folk. Above all, he tries to express a sound that
is genuine, and easy to listen to.
