Sweet Megg at Upper Jay Art Center’s The Recovery Lounge

August 26, 2023 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

$15

Sweet Megg is a singer based in Nashville, TN originally from New York City. She performs a range of material steeped in the American traditions of jazz, blues, and country. Her vocals reveal a vast variety of influences, ranging from Billie Holiday to Patsy Cline & from Wanda Jackson to Anita O’day. Expect energy, enthusiasm, and some damn good music.

Inspired by Bob Wills, she is taking the idea of mixing country and jazz to the next level. “I’ve been building a sound combining my knowledge and experience in the old-time jazz world of New York with the country music I love and have learned so much about living down in Nashville. Bob Wills loved jazz and I believe his vision was to meld the two genres of his era creating Western swing. I’m just expanding on that idea by not only taking jazz & country ideas from the 30s & 40s but also integrating ideas from the 50s, 60s, 70s, and so on”.
