A singer-songwriter with her piano singing about the defeats and victories one faces in this life.
Meghan Bowman was studying music therapy when she experienced a random assault on a city bus by a stranger one day. She took the tools that she learned while studying to become a music therapist to help her write out how she was feeling after the attack. The Watchmen is an album that contains those songs.
Meghan has always written about love and she will continue to do so as she feels it is one of the strongest things she has ever experienced. Even in the midst of this dark album, there are love songs woven in. There is hope within the sorrow.
Meghan plays the piano mainly when she sings but she is trained in guitar, cello and other percussive instruments. Those instruments occasionally appear as she performs live.
An acoustic album about the contemplation of life and love.
Music is universal. Pain seems to be as well. I live my life believing that healing can be as well. I am currently studying music therapy and wrote this EP while studying the philosophies of Fran Herman and Mary Priestley. Stay tuned for another album coming your way soon!
A piano folk/pop style that combines the sounds of heartbreak with the sounds of healing.

“This chick is fricken hardcore and awesome. This is genuine, gorgeous and beautiful. I listen to metal, heavy heavy metal, but this woman is fricken pwnaliciously legit. BUY THIS!"
Written about life, longing and lessons learned. Bowman's delicate voice tells it like it is and leaves listeners trying to unwrap the poetry of each song.
An album full of heartbreak and overcoming it. The lyrics invite you in and connect deep with personal stories of failure and victory. The piano leads with no regret. Artist has been compared to the likes of Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos.
Meghan Bowman has been hitting the piano keys since she was a little girl. Persistently in her parents basement, she would write melodies and record some lyrics on her first cassette player. Her first completed, refined song didn't arise until she was 17 though. She came home one day from school, picked up her guitar and started writing out the sorrows of a recent relationship gone bad.
Meghan writes: "It's hard to find peace and quiet around here. The laughter of the modern day sitcom in the other room. The sound of the dog barking. Even when I put my headphones on, and turn it way up, it doesn't cut out the sounds of the world. I think that's the most terrifying feeling. To not be able to escape. To not be able to hear what your heart says. What your conscience says.
The first undying love that I ever knew was from my 13 year old best friend. She loved so freely, and spoke so wisely. And she knew how to escape. She loved to dance. And she loved music. And I think that music lessened her pain.
Music speaks bolder than I do. It takes authority. If I have something that I can't admit, it comes out through a song.
I don't claim to know much. I am a terrible sight reader or reader for that matter when it comes to songs and scales. But that's alright, because I play music with my fingertips. I've been trying to see music like Stevie Wonder must see music. He's blind but I'm sure that he paints a picture in his head when he plays. Because he paints pictures in my head. "
