Wong (Vienna Teng, Delta Rae) also produced her fifth, and current album, Running on Machinery. Her preceding album, A Token of the Wreckage, was recorded with help from David Bryson (Counting Crows) and Jerry Becker (Train). Megan and her songwriting have received national and international recognition: in 2018 she was a finalist in the Unsigned Only Music Competition, in 2017 she won First Place in the Unsigned Only Music Competition (AAA Category,) and was a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, in 2016 she was a semi-finalist in the International Songwriting Competition, and in 2015 she was a two-time "Vox Pop" winner in the Independent Music Awards, a finalist in the USA Songwriting Competition, and a semi-finalist in the UK Songwriting Contest. https://www.meganslankard.com/ Alex Wong has a new full-length solo album, The Elephant and the Seahorse, and a two-act musical (The Paper Raincoat) forthcoming in 2019 – as well as a Latin GRAMMY nomination, multiple song placements in film and TV (The Last Song, The Lincoln Lawyer, Ray Donovan, and True Blood, among others), and a growing list of production credits with artists such as Delta Rae, Elizabeth and the Catapult, Melissa Ferrick, Ari Hest, Megan Slankard, and Vienna Teng – Wong still feels that it’s taken him a long time to learn what “feeling like him” actually means. He tackles that very question on his forthcoming solo LP, The Elephant and the Seahorse, which finds Wong grappling with his complicated relationship to memory as it pertains to his identity. To bring the album to life in an authentic way, the artist had to mine his own fears of memory loss, experiences, and even cultural conditioning throughout the writing and recording process. “My whole basis for songwriting is that I have a question, and I’m going to work through it in this way,” he shares. “That’s usually what I find myself more excited about writing—those broader ideas that become a very personal question of, ‘who am I?’ and ‘where do I come from?’. I find myself way more interested in tackling that stuff in my songs than I am in, say, writing my way through a breakup.” https://www.highceilingsmusic.com
