A home grown singer-songwriter planted firmly in the soils of Dumaguete City seeking to bloom elsewhere in the world, Meagan Trees enchants you with her sweet-sounding, dreamy and whimsical indie folk vibe.
Born Meagan Catrice Montesa, originally from Bais, a quaint city on the Negros Island which prides itself in dolphins, white sand beaches, and lush mountain ranges.
While studying in Silliman University as a Biology student, she finds herself a square peg in a round hole, because majority of the time she prefers the guitar over the microscope. Although two distinct streams found a common river, as she puts melody to her love for nature.
In her youth, she found inspiration in waking up to the sounds of Jack Johnson, Lisa Hannigan, and Norah Jones, who greatly influenced her style and sound.
She has been releasing songs every year since she became an artist under Lilystars Records starting with her debut single, ‘Haven’, which was released on March 10, 2017. Her next single, Tangerine Skies, a song perfect for a chill and breezy summer afternoon or a cold rainy day, was released in January of 2018 characteristically painting a picture of different elements of nature with her lyrics. The following year, she released another single titled ‘Five More Years’ with her classic plucked guitar sounds and angelic voice bringing out the feeling of sentimentality. Her latest single called Take Me Away was just released last October 30, 2020 and was featured in a Rappler article.
