UK Artist of the Week: Megan Henwood

Having won the BBC Young Folk Award back in 2009, critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Megan Henwood has received support from BBC Radio 2’s Mark Radcliffe and Janice Long—and has now returned with a twinkling new single.

Taken from her upcoming album River, “Seventh” flows with shimmering melodies alongside Henwood’s warm, smooth vocals. Filled with a heartfelt, swooping emotion, it oozes a sophisticated musicality and delicate beauty, making for a truly charming slice of alt-folk. With shades of This Is The Kit and Lucy Rose, “Seventh” will leave you longing for more of Henwood’s intimate and uplifting soundscapes.

Having already wowed crowds at numerous festivals, including Glastonbury and Cambridge Folk Festival, it looks like Megan Henwood will continue to draw in more fans with her consistently enchanting creations.
