Megan Warren Follows the Songwriting Road Less Traveled


meg headshot edit.jpgMegan Warren wants you to get up and dance.

That's one of the reasons she formed a synth-pop band called Repartee back in 2009. The band quickly earned a reputation for high-energy, high-tempo live shows.

In that context, it can be hard to stand out as a distinct and original songwriter.

But Megan Warren's songs have layers of depth and personality you won't find in most catchy pop tunes.

It's one reason why Repartee is among the strongest young bands in Newfoundland and Labrador, in demand for events like Canada Music Week and the East Coast Music Awards.

This Saturday we'll hear her music in a more intimate setting, as Megan joins me in Studio F at CBC St. John's.

She'll sit at the Steinway grand piano to play a few selections from the Repartee catalogue, and talk about her songs and her band.

Also on this week's show, new fiction by Russell Wangersky, from his short story collection Whirl Away.
