Bio

Meaghan Blanchard is a two time ECMA award winning songwriter from Prince Edward Island, Canada.

She is a gifted guitarist, with her own blend of claw hammer/finger picking style, and she pairs that with a crystal pure voice and a unique ability to write and tell stories through charming character driven songs. 

“THE GREAT ESCAPE” is Meaghan Blanchard’s fourth album, to be released in June 2018. The songs are strong, at times deeply personal, and sown throughout are the narratives of men and women who have rumbled with profound universal themes: self-doubt, fear and hope for a better way of living.  "The Great Escape" was produced by Jim Bryson at Fixed Hinge Studio in Stitsville, Ontario CANADA. 

“Meaghan is truly an artist with a vision of how to use her wonderful voice and pair it up with songs that truly move you as a listener.”
