For all you Starkids out there and for anyone else who has not yet discovered the unique yet enthralling sound of musician Megan Cox. Megan’s enthusiasm for her music and her relaxed, refreshing attitude to just make her art has left me dumb-founded! Not many young people share this kind of realism, she is an admirable young lady!
I’m from Shelby Township, Michigan. I started playing piano when I was 3, eventually I picked up the violin. I studied voice at the University of Michigan. Music has always been my primary focus, so after I graduated I moved to NYC knowing that I wanted to pursue a career playing music.
It took me a few years to get on track but now I’m a freelance musician in the city. I play with several bands, including Charlene Kaye and the Brilliant Eyes, Cesspool, Jared Saltiel, Go Go Ghost and Jay Stolar to name a few.
Did you study with Darren Criss and the rest of the Starkids at Michigan?
I studied at the same time as everybody but since I was in a different program I didn’t meet any of the StarKids until the SPACE tour. The only person I had met in college was Nick Lang.
Which has been your favourite gig? (more…)
