Writing her own music since she was a teenager, Megan already has several pieces of original music available for music download (iTunes). She was presented with the opportunity to take her music journey to the next level with the recording of her debut EP and is asking for help and support from those who believe in her music to help her achieve this next step.

"I grew up around music," songwriter Megan explains on her Kickstarter campaign website page. "My dad was a professional songwriter, and my mom was an artist and session singer. When I was around 14, I discovered John Mayer and knew instantly I wanted to write my own songs and perform them every night for anyone who would listen. I perform my original music all over, and I have had some amazing opportunities. I have some exciting things coming up this year, and I can't wait to share it all with you!"

Rewards for supporting the campaign include digital downloads of previous songs, autographed hard copies of the EP, exclusive Megan Barker promotional t-shirt designs, guitar lessons and private concerts on Skype, a live show performed anywhere in the continental U.S., and a trip to Las Vegas with tours of the city by Megan herself. With a specific timeframe and budget in mind, Megan plans to make the funds raised go very far and looks to Kickstarter as a solution to how to raise money needed for this venture.
