SHARES ACOUSTIC VIDEO FOR
‘GIMME’

AHEAD OF MOONLIGHT
UK/EUROPEAN HEADLINE TOUR NEXT MONTH

‘GIMME’ AVAILABLE TO STREAM ON SPOTIFY HERE

One to watch for 2019, Megan Davies is bringing her unique alt-pop style to the UK shortly, blending together a mix of commercial pop, indie folk and experimental rock.

She has just revealed a special acoustic video of her track ‘Gimme’. The original version debuted on nine Spotify playlists across the globe upon its release in November and was hotly tipped by the likes of Billboard. The release comes ahead of her UK and European headline tour in February and March.

Megan first gained traction online which led to her becoming a YouTube sensation after building up views and subscribers in their millions with her creative acoustic covers and mashups. Tracks like her 3-song mashup ‘See You Again/ Love Me Like You Do/ Sugar’ has had over 60 million video plays and reached #1 on both the US and Global Spotify Viral 50 charts.

She’s now amassed over 190 million views and 1.3 million subscribers on her YouTube channel and she maintains over 6 million Spotify streams each month.

Her influencer status led to collaborations with the likes of the Red Cross & American Cancer Society as well as performing for Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya and the creators of The Greatest Showman then attending the film’s premiere in New York.

Megan’s first dose of original music was the 2017 debut Bad Poetry EP which was released independently and has clocked up over 3 million Spotify streams with the title track getting a lot of love from Sirius XM.

Last year she went on to release the songs ‘Doesn’t Matter’, which won 1st Place in the USA Songwriting Competition – Pop Category, the popular streaming track ‘Moonlight’ and her latest single ‘Gimme’ giving a taste of what’s to come. She also finished off last year with the beautiful festive number ‘Blue Christmas’.

As well as her ever-growing online following, Megan is also rapidly building her presence on the live scene having recently toured across the US supporting YouTube heavyweights Boyce Avenue and has shared the stage with the likes of Jennifer Hudson, Madilyn Bailey and Noah Guthrie and Striking Matches.

She is now excited to play for her UK and European fans next month with her special guest opener and UK native, Alex Francis. There will be a whole host of exciting things to come for 2019.

YouTube today announced that it has ordered “The Keys of Christmas,” a holiday special starring global superstar Mariah Carey and YouTube musical sensation Rudy Mancuso that features original musical performances by many of the hottest acts around including Carey, Ciara, DJ Khaled and Fifth Harmony. “The Keys of Christmas” will debut on YouTube Red on December 19, 2016.

The star-studded ensemble cast will shepherd Mancuso on a magical adventure of the true meaning of Christmas. This seasonal tale, from Endemol Shine North America and its digital studio Endemol Shine Beyond USA and Just Entertainment Studios, will uncover what happens when you accidentally go off the grid on Christmas Eve with no phone and no way to function on this festive night.

World renowned and Grammy Award-winning music director Dave Meyers (Katy Perry’s “Firework,” Pink’s “Just Like Fire” and Rihanna’s “Where Have You Been”) will direct “The Keys of Christmas.” This special will also feature original musical performances by Alex Aiono, Boyce Avenue, Nicky Jam, Bebe Rexha and Gregory Brothers. Boxing legend Mike Tyson will make a special appearance, as he and the others join Mariah to show Rudy the true meaning of Christmas.

“Music is wildly popular on YouTube and we’re excited to bring together some of the biggest names in music alongside some of the biggest stars on YouTube. The musical icons and rising artists in ‘The Keys of Christmas’ bring this new holiday tale to life,” said Ben Relles, Head of Unscripted for YouTube Originals. “We are also thrilled to have YouTube comedy star Rudy Mancuso in his first leading role in a music special.”

“‘The Keys of Christmas’ is truly a modern take on the holiday variety special, bringing together traditional and digital natives in this very unique musical format for the YouTube audience,” said Bonnie Pan, President, Endemol Shine Beyond USA. “Dave Meyers, who has an amazing track record working with the top musical acts of our time, had a vision and was able to weave that into a fresh new format with the likes of Mariah Carey, Ciara, DJ Khaled, Fifth Harmony, Rudy Mancuso and many other incredible performers just in time for Christmas.”

“Nothing makes you believe in a Christmas miracle more than creating a show where over 20 super stars from Mariah Carey to DJ Khaled, Rudy Mancuso, Fifth Harmony and the champ himself, Mike Tyson, all come together,” said Justin Hochberg, CEO of Just Entertainment Studios. “Christmas is the global holiday, so launching this show with YouTube Red in the U.S. and so many other countries all on one magical night is the perfect partnership; and would make Santa proud.”
