Born and Raised…
on the coast of California, singer/songwriter Meghan Lehman blends her heartfelt, confessional lyrics with country-tinged melodies that make known the formative years she spent listening to musical heroes like Joni Mitchell, Lucinda Williams, and Gillian Welch.
Though she wrote poetry and sang from a young age, it wasn’t until her time in college that Meghan taught herself to play guitar and wrote her first song. She spent several years overcoming stage fright and gaining confidence by performing in small venues around Southern California. When she self-released her first album, A Stranger Here, in 2009, she had no idea that her music would soon take the backseat to marriage, the birth of two daughters and the quotidian grind of making a living in Santa Barbara.
In November 2018, while listening to a Lucinda Williams album, she experienced the proverbial lightning strike of revelation. She had to figure out a way to write and play songs again, it was the dream that would not be ignored.
With a full-time job and a young family, Meghan is carving out time for the dream that will not go away: writing, singing and sharing her songs.
