MEGAN BURTT & The Cure for Love (Denver, CO originally, tour van currently)
Born and bred in Denver, Burtt was inspired by Joni Mitchell’s Blue, and taught herself to play, dreaming of a musical career. “I didn’t know any girls who played music, but Blue, Bonnie Raitt’s Nick of Time and the women on the MTV videos I saw, let me know it was possible.” Burtt attended the Berklee School of Music in Boston and made two EPs she calls her “practice records.” When she graduated from Berklee, Burtt moved to Mississippi to investigate the roots of American blues music. While there, she contracted a potentially fatal disease, but she never stopped singing or performing, and eventually found her way to full recovery. She played music in Vietnam for a couple of months, then returned to the States to record It Ain’t Love, a 12 song collection she made with the friends that still make up the backbone of her recording band – Louis Cato, guitarist Adam Tressler and James Williams. One of the songs on the album, “Waiting for June,” won Best Song at the 2010 Rocky Mountain Folk Festival and the 2011 Kerrville New Folk Competition. In 2015, Burtt released The Bargain, produced by Louis Cato (Bobby McFerrin, Marcus Miller, Snarky Puppy, Mariah Carey) a talented multi-instrumentalist, and long time member of Burtt’s backing band. Megan Burtt has shared the stage with artists such as, Colorado Symphony, John Oats, Braddigan (of Dispatch), Katie Herzig, Glenn Phillips (Toad the Wet Sprocket), Kevin Griffin (Better Than Ezra), Diane Birch, Peter Mulvey, Willy Porter, Karla Bonoff among others…. Noteworthy Venues performed : Red Rocks Amphitheater, Boettcher Hall, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, Rocky Mountain Folk Festival, Kerrville Folk Festival. 2015 – WINNER, Westword Music Awards Best Singer/Songwriter.
