INFO: The distorted cry of a lap steel guitar slices through the Brooklyn night. A voice sings with aching sweetness and strength. Caressing melodies are barbed with stinging solos. This is the sound of The Last Town Chorus - the revolving ensemble led by singer/writer/lap-steel-guitarist Megan Hickey - whose singular approach to music has beguiled writers from The Village Voice, SPIN, Marie Claire, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and ELLE among countless others. Her live shows are nothing short of revelatory, bringing audience members to tears, turning critics into fanatics and building a fiercely loyal fan base in every city The Last Town Chorus visits.
