Megon is best known for her work as an inaugural member of the folk group The Four Bitchin’ Babes, which allowed her wit and folk sensibilities to comment on the ups and downs of everyday life. To date, Megon has 15 solo albums to her credit, and is best known for her inspiring song “Amazing Things.” Megon classifies   her music as folk/cabaret, citing her love of theater and jazz as the reason for the unusual mix.
