Congleton musician Megan Dixon Hood’s songs are getting more exposure.
The 19 year old singer songwriter is currently a third year songwriting student at The British & Irish Modern Music Institute (BIMM) in Manchester.
And she has been enjoying a flurry of attention, due to a moving piano ballad she has written and self-released, entitled ‘Early Morning Riser‘.
Sir Terry Wogan has professed to have fallen in love with the song and played it on air as an exclusive on ‘Weekend Wogan‘, his BBC Radio 2 Sunday lunchtime show.
On the back of this, the former Eaton Bank Academy pupil will be doing a live interview and session for Sir Terry Wogan’s BBC Radio 2 colleague, Alex Lester for his BBC Radio Oxford Show.
She has also been asked by Rag’n’Bone Man – aka soul and blues singer, Rory Graham – to support him on his tour in 2016, after he was ‘bowled over’ by her live performance.
“I saw Megan playing at the Glass Butter Beach Festival in Wales and was mesmerised by her haunting vocals. She reminded me of Sandy Denny” he said.
The British and Irish Modern Music Institute is the largest provider of contemporary music education in the UK and Europe. Alumni include James Bay, George Ezra, Tom Odell, The Kooks, Luke Sital-Singh, Ben Thompson (Two Door Cinema Club), Ed Drewett (singer-songwriter for One Direction), Olly Murs and The Wanted.
