Megon McDonough has been singing and writing original songs since she was 11! Seeing The Beatles on The Ed Sullivan Show inspired her, and saved her from a life in the convent. (The nuns started recruiting early). She has 19 solo albums to her credit and 9 compilation CD’s she is proud to be on. Her discography can be seen (and heard) at and on Her most recent venture; a one woman show; Dedicated To The Ones I Love ~ Great Women Singers of the 50s 60s & 70s, has audiences on their feet singing along calling for “more”! In it Megon honors 16 of her favorite and most influential singers from Debbie Reynolds to the fab women of the British Invasion and ending with legendary Janis Joplin.

The ET All Stars are indie storytellers comprised of songwriter Emily Thompson on vocals, keys, and uke, Clint Bergin on percussion, Brian Buhman on bass, and Randy Morris on guitar, with haunting harmonies by Ashley Kushner. Lyric-forward ballads and punchy pop tunes are supported by surprising chord changes and catchy hooks, as these musicians blend rock, jazz, Americana, and cabaret influences.
