Here at CelebMix, we love introducing our readers to fresh talent. In this article, we introduce you to Nashville-based singer and song-writer Megan Davies and exclusively premiere the music video for her recent single ‘Gimme.’
Megan Davies first began to make a name for herself in the music industry when she became a YouTube sensation and influencer, after amassing millions of views and subscribers on her channel, with her creative acoustic covers and mash-ups. Her three-song mash-up of ‘See You Again’/’Love Me Like You Do’/’Sugar’ has received over 62 million views, also reaching the Number One position on the US and Global Spotify Viral 50 Charts.
Her ‘Bad Poetry’ EP represented her first release of original music. The independent release has, to date, received over three million Spotify streams.
With her now having received over 190 million views and 1.3 million subscribers on her Official YouTube Channel and maintaining millions of Spotify streams each month, she is definitely one to watch out for in 2019, with her unique alt-pop style of music, whereby she blends together a mix of commercial folk, indie folk and experimental rock.
She recently shared an incredible acoustic version of her track ‘Gimme,’ a poignant and realist track, with the original track being hotly tipped by the likes of Billboard.
The release of ‘Gimme’ comes ahead of her headline UK and European tour taking place throughout February and March 2019. For a full list of tour dates and to buy tickets to her tour, click here.

CelebMix now exclusively premiere the official music video for her single ‘Gimme.’ The music video takes a look in to the toxic side of social media, with Megan coming up with the concept for the video. You can watch the official music video below:
Speaking about the music video, Megan said the video follows the concept of “creators getting trapped by the online persona they create. It’s something that I’ve feared for myself as a YouTuber. It’s easy to get boxed in as a musician – whether your platform is a show like ‘American Idol’ or doing covers on YouTube. Before you know it, everything you create is dictated by the image that’s been curated online. It can be a struggle to maintain authenticity.”
