Sweet Megg (Megg Farrell) is a New York City bred vocalist who performs a range of material steeped in the American traditions of jazz and blues. She splits her time between Nashville and Brooklyn where she performs early jazz, blues, Western swing, classic country, and her original Americana. She released her first record, Under the Moonlight, in March 2020 on Dala Records and her second, I’m in Love Again, in 2021 with Turtle Bay Records. Her vocals reveal a vast variety of influences, ranging from Billie Holiday to Patsy Cline to Edith Piaf to Bessie Smith.
Megg spent her first 7 years as a jazz singer leading the original formation of the group “Sweet Megg & the Wayfarers,” who performed traditional jazz & blues in New York City, France, Russia, and up and down the East Coast. After touring in the South, Megg started to introduce Classic Country and Western Swing into the band’s repertoire. Eventually breaking out solo, she began working with other musicians and groups from the scene of early American music such as Postmodern Jukebox, Jerron “Blind Boy” Paxton, Ricky Alexander, and eventually meeting Scott Asen of Turtle Bay Records who she now works with full-time.
