“SAN FRANCISCO INDIE-ROCKER nerd Megan Slankard and her band The Wreckage have independently sold over 40,000 copies of five self-released albums and are currently planning consecutive releases of a brand new double-EP project in 2022. The new EPs, which were co-produced with Nashville Producer Alex Wong (Vienna Teng, Delta Rae), will showcase new sides of Megan’s music, balancing delightfully belligerent rock and roll with lush cinematic soundscapes of orchestral instruments and robot harmonies.

Pre-pandemic, Megan packed 2018 and 2019 with over 10 months of touring, including a 50-show Guitar Center tour with BOSE Professional, a bio-coastal songwriter tour with Nashville’s Alex Wong, and a 30-date, cross-country tour with Toad the Wet Sprocket.

Her songwriting has received national and international recognition: she was a finalist the 2021, 2020, and 2018 Unsigned Only Competition, a finalist in the 2020 and 2018 International Songwriting Competition, and a finalist in the 2019 International Acoustic Music Awards. Megan won first place in the 2017 Unsigned Only Music Competition (AAA Category) for a punk song she wrote, record, and performed herself in her kitchen, smack dab in the middle of San Francisco. (Sorry neighbors.)

Megan’s adventures have also included touring with Dire Straits co-founder David Knopfler throughout Europe, duets with Pat Monahan and Train, performing for a TedX event, co-writing, performing, and producing a song for San Francisco’s KFOG’s Breast Cancer Research charity drive (featuring featured guest singers Hozier, Florence Welch, Steve Earle, Grace Potter and more,) playing electric guitar on Jimmy Kimmel Live, singing the National Anthem dressed as Princess Leia at Oracle Park for the San Francisco Giants (and five other times, dressed as herself), singing for Glen Keane’s animated short “Duet” for Google’s Spotlight Stories, and even participating on two episodes of TLC’s reality makeover series, What NOT to Wear (she really had no idea.)

“Megan Slankard is something of an indie sensation. The Bay Area based indie singer-songwriter has a powerful, expressive voice and pairs that with honest, heartfelt lyrics. With five self-released albums up her sleeve… you can’t help but be impressed by her industry.” – MONO”
