An Interview With Megan Negron-Dalton

An absolutely beautiful and honest acoustic EP released from Megan Negron-Dalton was just released and it has the ability to cause memories of your won to flash through your head as she lets loose an emotionally driven and wonderfully woven recollection of life experiences with a gracefulness that feels welcoming.

The songs on the Bruised Peach EP are performed with a youthful passion that sticks with you for days on end.

The stripped-down subtlety of this record makes you more attached to the lyrics and character she portrays perfectly with great attention to detail as she paints vivid pictures and clearly wears her heart on her sleeves.

This is the type of singer songwriter release that can kind of dig deep or that you can actually dig into yourself and take the ride.

This style of songwriting should come from someplace genuine and real just as Bruised Peach does and that aspect of it is brave and inspiring in its own right.

You also get a little bit of an idea of what Megan may be like in a live performance setting. That one-on-one feeling is alive and well on the record itself so it's going to be there live too.

A wonderful EP that lets the artist really shine, Bruised Peach is an engulfing release, and with a record like this, we wanted to have a sit down with Megan Negron-Dalton to talk about where this actually came from.

Here's what happened.

Buzz Slayers: Let's kick things off with the Bruised Peach EP. This record has a very personal feel to it. Where did this EP come from?

So, the bruised Peach Ep was something I started writing in October 2019. A couple of months prior, I was seeing this man, who was an artist, a drummer, and a photographer who I fell completely in love with (what's not to love about all those things) but hid it of course because at the time, I wasn't looking to settle down. Long story short, I told him and he pretty much left immediately and we really never spoke again about it in person, just a couple of I'm sorry and hope all is well texts. So naturally, I turned to music and came up with the bruised peach title and it's just all about heartbreak.

Buzz Slayers: When did this all start for you? How did you fall in love with music?

Music was always familiar to me. I grew up with parents who were both musicians as well as playing in bands and piano bars. I fell in love with music when my mom used to play guitar for me and my sister as our "bedtime stories". I always dreamt of writing a bunch of music as a kid.

Buzz Slayers: What inspires you to write a song?

Deep-rooted emotions. The best material I ever wrote was from immense emotions. I like incorporating things I've said or what people have said to me in my lyrics because it makes me feel like it's right there and happening when I sing them.

Buzz Slayers: This track has some great styles! Can you give us some of your top musical influences?

Thank you! I would say I am a huge indie rock/pop fan so my ep influences at the time were beabadoobee, Jessie Reyez, Lana Del Rey, Peach Pit, Yellow days, Tv Girl, Slow pulp etc. I could go on forever!

Buzz Slayers: What are you doing when you're NOT working on music?

If I am not working on music, I am reading books, roller skating, working on live sound engineering in the studio, taking walks in the sun, and spending time with my lovely boyfriend Michael, who I love so much.

Buzz Slayers: Who's in your headphones right now?

Blood orange, Babygirl, Taylor Swift, Sade, Leon Bridges, Masego, TOPS etc.

Buzz Slayers: Are you doing any live performances right now?

In the New Year, so stay tuned!

Buzz Slayers: This record feels like a big undertaking, is there any advice you'd give to other up-and-coming artists out there?

Keep going and keep writing. Work on everything efficiently and don't half-ass it.

Buzz Slayers: What can your fans expect from you in the near future?

I won't say much because I want to surprise people, but we have some new sounds and a new me coming.

Buzz Slayers: Before we go, what would you like to say to fans of the music?

I hope that this music helps you feel not alone when you feel alone, and that life gets better as you age and grow. So, if you are going through a tough heartbreak right now, just know that it really does only make you stronger. Cheers XX!
