Austin’s Megan Lacy is releasing her debut EP, Salvation on March 5th. Salvation was years in the making and really showcases Lacy’s lyrical mastery and phenomenal vocal quality. Recorded King Electric Studios in Austin with Justin Douglas at the helm, the EP features an incredible band that perfectly surrounds the aforementioned Lacy vocals. The songs are haunting and sweet at the same time. The lead single, “Carolina” has the protagonist attempting to run from her past and realizing that it never works. The centrepiece of the EP is the title track, which serves as Lacy’s anthem for forgiveness and learning the power of our own limitations. Douglas kept the arrangements stripped down on Salvation to allow the songs themselves to shine. this is not to say the sound is lacking fullness in any way.

Lacy says of the album, “Salvation is deeply personal to each individual, yet our experiences coincide. The most fascinating part is that whatever saves you is yours to keep. Often these are the things that someone else might have thrown away. The record depicts how we ultimately end up using the darkness to find the light.”

Originally from Northern California, Lacy has been based in Austin, Texas for several years now. Her style effortlessly spans the breadth of traditional American music, while remaining softly influenced by her own list of cult genres, giving her a unique but powerful voice in the expansive universe of modern music.
