Following the success around her recent solo single Why I Need You which has been on various country radio playlists across the UK and had nearly 100k video views to date, London-based Irish singer/songwriter Megan O’Neill has today released another track from her forthcoming album, the upbeat country-leaning song Ghost of You. Recorded in Nashville earlier this year, Megan describes the song as "one of those ones that just kind of flowed out - it was effortless to write in some ways but then of course, when editing, you can spend hours changing one lyric here and another one there! It’s about loved ones lost but their memories live on as part of you. One part of you wishes you could let them go - let those memories go - and yet another part of you is thankful that you still have them with you in some spiritual way."
With a sold-out first show of the year in Camden next week, Megan returns to the stage with her full band on February 10th for a full-band headline show at Under The Bridge, London.
Now fans can stream/download the new single on Spotify and all other platforms now, or check out the track via Soundcloud here.

A natural born singer artist Daniety Smith began singing in her church choir at the age of two, later participating in her school’s plays. Her music reflects the traditional aspects of country music while including a variety of genres including rock and pop. This is demonstrated in Daniety’s latest release Just Me. Hoping to make a difference in the world, the track encourages listeners to just be themselves and not let anyone tell them otherwise. Influenced by experiences of her own, Daniety’s songs are relatable and tell a story. Daniety also enjoys hearing her fans’ interpretation of her music saying “I want my lyrics to help a fan get through the day.”
Living in Nashville, Daniety has had the opportunity to collaborate and learn from others in the music business. Having worked with Tim McGraw’s guitar player and being inspired by the band Jackson Ward, Daniety’s music continues to evolve.
This year Daniety hopes to share her music through acoustic sets which allow her to better connect to her audience. For now you can find Daniety’s music on ReverbNation and on social media at @DanietySmith.
