Welsh singer-songwriter Megan Lee is a wise head on young shoulders. After spending the past few years as part of her family band Blue Genes, she is now ready to embark on a solo career, beginning with debut single ‘Humble Your Heart’. It is a song that demonstrates a maturity far beyond her years, both in its message and in its sound. In the lyrics, a kindly ultimatum, filled with prayer, hope and forgiveness for someone whose heart will “feel the hurt that you caused to mine”. It is a call to humbleness that is delivered with such a soft, sensitive vocal that one fully believes in the grace-filled words that pour out over a gorgeous musical arrangement. Megan draws on elements of bluegrass, country and roots to give us something that honours the traditional whilst imprinting it with a distinctly-modern touch. It is a well-crafted sound that gives the listener a real flavour of the kind of artists (Emmylou Harris and Margo Price among them) that Megan has drawn inspiration from. Ashley Monroe and Alison Krauss are two further names that come to mind if comparisons were to be made. But I don’t think Megan Lee will need such an introduction. ‘Humble Your Heart’ is evidence enough that she deserves to be known as an artist in her own right.
