Megan Burtt was born and bred in Denver, CO. "I've
always written songs," she says. "I took piano
lessons when I was young, but when I picked up my dad's
old classical guitar, things took off." Inspired
by Joni Mitchell's Blue, Burtt taught herself to play,
dreaming of a musical career. "I didn't know any
girls who played music, but Blue, Bonnie Raitt's Nick
of Time and the women on the MTV videos I saw, let me
know it was possible."
Burtt attended the Berklee School of Music in Boston.
There she made two EPs she calls her "practice
records." "As soon as I met other musicians,
I put together a band and started playing". We
took every gig we could get. I loved being on stage
with such talented players. It developed my ear, made
my guitar playing more solid and made me a confident.
