Megan Slankard & The Wreckage


SAN FRANCISCO INDIE-ROCKER NERD Megan Slankard has independently sold over 40,000 copies of her five self-released albums and is currently planning consecutive releases of a brand new double-EP project winter 2021. The new EPs, which were co-produced with Nashville Producer Alex Wong (Vienna Teng, Delta Rae), will showcase new sides of Megan’s music, balancing delightfully belligerent rock and roll with lush cinematic soundscapes of orchestral instruments and robot harmonies.

Pre-Pandemic, Megan packed 2018 and 2019 with over 10 months of touring, including a 50-show Guitar Center tour with BOSE Professional, a bio-coastal songwriter tour with Nashville’s Alex Wong, and a 30 date, cross-country tour with Toad the Wet Sprocket.

Her songwriting has received national and international recognition: she was a finalist in 2020 in the International Songwriting Competition, a finalist in 2019 for both the USA Songwriting Contest and the International Acoustic Music Awards, and a 2018 finalist in the ISC. Megan won first place in the 2017 Unsigned Only Music Competition (AAA Category) for a punk song she wrote, record, and performed herself in her own kitchen (sorry, neighbors).

Megan’s adventures have also included touring with Dire Straits co-founder David Knopfler throughout Europe, duets with Pat Monahan and Train, co-writing and performing on a song for KFOG’s Breast Cancer Research charity drive (featuring featured guest singers Hozier, Florence Welch, Steve Earle, Grace Potter and more,) playing electric guitar on Jimmy Kimmel Live, singing the National Anthem at AT&T Park for the San Francisco Giants on five separate occasions, singing on Glen Keane’s animated short Duet, and even participating on two episodes of TLC’s reality makeover series, What NOT to Wear.

Megan proudly uses Bose Professional sound systems, Guild acoustic guitars, LR Baggs pickups, Swart amplifiers, and JH Audio IEMs. She also loves and drinks copious amounts of tea from her local tea company NUMI.
