Megan Simper is a multi-disciplinary artist based in Logan, Utah. Her unique musical style is complex and lyrical, blending classical, folk, bluegrass and blues seamlessly and integrating fingerstyle guitar, mandolin, piano, and more. Weaving intricate instrumental textures with vocals that are both pure and powerful, she believes that the arts help us to co-create ourselves and integrates her mindfulness practice into her work. She surrounds her listeners in a rich sonic landscape evocative of her native Utah landscape to draw them in and lead them back to themselves.
Megan holds a Batchelor of Music Degree from Utah State University. She is a founder of the folk-magic project “Hoodoo,” co-founder of Cache Valley beloved band “Mama LongLegs,” and co-host of the podcast “hang out with musicians” or “howm.” She has performed solo at TEDxUSU, and with Mama LongLegs at KUER, the Ellen Eccles Theater, and the Ogden Music Festival. She has written music for short films, radio, and her debut solo album “Woven In” was released in 2019.
She spends her time teaching private lessons, creating music and art, enjoying the beautiful Bear River Mountains and cultivating her meditation practice.
