Megan-Dixon-Hood Releases New Single ‘The Wishing Tree’

With a sound that mirrors ethereal alternative art rock/folk, the Cheshire born singer songwriter has embarked on a vigorous journey of releases, starting with her debut EP ‘Tales From The North’ a folk inspired self-released project, influenced by tales of nature and accompanied by suitably enchanting music videos. The steady flow of releases preceded a busy festival schedule, including Nozstock, Rock the Farm, Cornbury, Glass Butter Beach, Middlewich Folk Festival, Sidmouth Fringe Festival and a slot supporting  Rag’N’Bone Man. As her stock grew exponentially, her debut single ‘Early Morning Riser’ secured a sync on BBC One’s documentary ‘Ambulance’, a reminder of how far the BIMM graduate had come in such a short amount of time.

Though recognised as a traditional singer-songwriter, her drive and passion to construct contemporary music in her own original style led to a recording session with Manchester’s Untold Orchestra, helping to breath life into her latest creation like never before. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Amy Wadge and Wildwood Kin, her latest single ‘The Wishing Tree’ is nothing short of a chaotic masterpiece. Combining elements of synth-rock and folk, the song is an environmental statement that describes the greed of the human race; exploring the hypocrisy, fascination and destruction of our planets lungs. Without sounding cliché and with the upmost respect, this doesn’t fall under a specific genre, instead it tells a melodic story that we are then left to try and describe, with the artist herself stating that ‘her sound is hard to pinpoint and describe, but the words I hear most often are ethereal and haunting’.

Looking into the new year, Megan has her sights set on new material and some exciting live performances that will only boost her already growing reputation.
