Megan Sidwell has today released her new album Right Kind of Wrong, a collection of songs written since Sidwell’s move from New Zealand to Australia. ‘Over the course of these years I’ve met people who wanted me to change my sound and my look so I was an easier product to sell,’ says Sidwell, ‘and the name “Right Kind of Wrong” is about my own battles and acceptance towards my music. These songs feel right to me because they are my truth.’
Recorded in Nashville and produced by Sam Hawksley, who has worked with The Sunny Cowgirls and Adam Brand, Right Kind of Wrong features seven tracks showcasing Sidwell’s song-writing talents and uncanny ability to hit the heartstrings when it matters most. From slower ballads like ‘December’ to the retrospective ‘Seventeen’ and lead single ‘I Got You’, Sidwell paints a picture of the trials, tribulations and testing times that come with finding out who you are and who you want to be.
Having taken out first place in the 2016 Battle of the Bands at Tamworth Country Music Festival, not to mention support slots with Big Country, Tyler Hilton, Kate Voegele and Brad Cox, Sidwell is no stranger to wowing listeners on stage. The tracks from Right Kind of Wrong will no doubt add to her already impressive repertoire and she will be launching the album on 20th July at the Grace Darling Hotel in Collingwood.
