Nashville-based drummer Megan Jane brings a simple stylistic philosophy to her playing – “less is more.” Since moving to Nashville, Megan has played drums live and in the studio with several artists (Kree Harrison, Misa Arriaga, Sonia Leigh, Fiona Culley, Hailey Steele, Steve Grand, Hannah Dasher and others). She has also had the opportunity to play with Joan Osborne as well as to sit in on auxiliary percussion with Dr. John at the Americana Music Awards. Megan has appeared as a drummer on the ABC television show “Nashville” and as a musician on an episode of "Glee". She has experience playing all types and sizes of show and stage and has opened for artists ranging from Chris Young to DEVO.
Megan has also been involved with several projects as a studio musician including working with Grammy award winning Sony producer Josh Monroy (Ludacris, Quincy Jones) on various projects. She has recently recorded for Nashville-based Fiona Culley, Wild Ponies, Ellen Angelico and Amelia White, as well as London-based Worry Dolls. Megan also recorded drums for artist Steve Grand on his original song “Run” as well as his cover of the Elton John classic “Bennie and the Jets”.
Born in Virginia sporting a full head of hair, Megan – who now rocks an even more fabulous full head of hair - began playing both drums and guitar in high school. She credits several vastly different artists such as Kathy Mattea, Alanis Morissette and Led Zeppelin as her inspirations for getting involved with music. After attending Berklee College of Music for two years, Megan moved to Southern California and began getting as much experience playing live and working with varied artists as possible. She decided to make the move to Nashville in order to gain more opportunities in her musical career.
