Kildare singer-songwriter Megan O’Neill has just finished working on her second full-length studio album, ‘Getting Comfortable With Uncertainty’, set for public release in March 2021. This much-anticipated album follows ‘Ghost Of You’ (June 2018) which hit #1 on the iTunes singer-songwriter charts in the UK and Ireland.
Ahead of its release, Megan shares the album’s bonus track, a brooding cover of Jim Croce’s hit ‘Time In A Bottle’.
Megan says: “’Time In A Bottle’ was in collaboration with Mark Caplice and produced by Mark also. It’s our original and unique cover of this incredible Jim Croce song. I hope you enjoy it.
This forthcoming album was much more personal for me than any of my previous releases. I suppose I’m that bit older (and none the wiser!) – I feel that the more I learn about life the less I actually know about anything. That is where the title came from (‘Getting Comfortable With Uncertainty’). I’ve had a lot of change in my life in the past two years and I’ve felt pretty battered by the whole process to be honest. But I do believe that all those tough times bring about growth – in a way that contentment and comfort never will. So I’m learning to just get comfortable with the uncertainty of life – it’s always going to change.”
Deemed a “rising star” by uDiscover and Timeout Magazine London, Megan’s forthcoming album has already received huge attention in the sync world, with one track having already been selected for placement in a major Netflix series, airing spring 2021.
To date, Megan has toured the UK, Ireland, US and Germany. She has performed at private Oscars’ parties in LA alongside Gavin James (on invite from JJ Abrams) and has had her song ‘Don’t You’ featured on ABC’s hit TV Show ‘Nashville’ (Season 3). In 2019 Megan opened three stadium shows for the legendary Sir Tom Jones – performing in front of 15,000 people per night. In the first few months of 2020, Megan opened for Lighthouse Family at The Olympia Theatre, Dublin, and Jamie Cullum at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre.
New album ‘Getting Comfortable With Uncertainty’ coming 12th March 2021.
