With nearly 3.5 million subscribers and 725 million views on Youtube, Megan is taking the music world by storm by out subscribing music giants like Lorde, Austin Mahone, Carly Rae Jepsen & Five Seconds of Summer. After leaving Sean Diddy Comb’s Bad Boy Records/Interscope, Megan independently released her debut album “Escape,” in 2014, with an overwhelming response.  With a studio film, headlining tour, and original music under her belt, this multitalented artist is breaking boundaries and leading the merging force between traditional and new media. After an incredibly busy 2015, Megan has been in the studio working on new original music, with first single “Mascara” released earlier this year. After releasing her single, Megan hit the road with Emblem3 and The Ready Set on the Waking Up Tour.

Born and raised in Katy, Texas, Megan did not always know she wanted to be a musician, but she knew music would always be part of her life. Growing up, she played piano for many years, but it wasn’t until high school when she purchased a guitar from a local pawnshop that she fell in love with creating and performing music. For Christmas, her parents bought her a new guitar to replace her old “Pawn Shop.” This guitar was what she used to make her first YouTube video with a cover of “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon.

It was these trailblazing creative covers that launched Megan’s career in 2009. Quickly recognized for her raw talent and passion for music, Megan became a viral sensation landing a spot in the coveted Top 100 Music Channels alongside top selling artists such as: Katy Perry, Adele & Coldplay.

Continuously evolving as an artist, Megan released her debut album of original songs on October 14, 2014. The 5-song EP, titled “Escape,” featured singles, “Electrified” and “Fun.” Following the international success of her EP, Megan Nicole embarked on a North American headlining tour.  The “Sweet Dreams” tour kicked off in Toronto and continued throughout the United States until the tour wrapped in Los Angeles.

In addition to her tour, Megan developed and starred in the Relativity Digital Studios film “Summer Forever.”  The music video for the film’s namesake song and creative inspiration, which was co-written and performed by Megan Nicole, has more than 15 million views online. The film was released on September 4, 2015 with an accompanying soundtrack released by Hollywood Records.

Apart from her music, Megan embraced her Latina heritage by partnering with Univision as the YouTube cohost of La Banda opposite William Valdes. La Banda is a new competition where Univision and Simon Cowell are looking for the world’s ultimate Latino super group through the largest Latino talent search is US TV history.

Megan also recently guest starred in an episode of Popples, a Netflix original series for kids. Megan made her animated debut as Squeaky Pop in the episode “Fallen Pop Idol” and lent her voice to the new Popples original song, “Together with My Friends.”
