STRIKING MATCHES
STRIKING MATCHES
“We met in guitar class” is not a thing many people can say...but Sarah Zimmermann and Justin Davis performed together for the first time on the very same day they met...in guitar class.

Fast forward, following the international success of Striking Matches’ 2015 album “Nothing But The Silence”, produced by T-Bone Burnett, and 9 songs on TV’s “Nashville”, Davis and Zimmermann have teamed up with Kennedy Karate (BØRNS, Silver Sun Pickups) for their second LP, an album in a style they call “blues-pop” - an amalgamation of their blues and roots based guitar riffs, combined with pop melodies - due out this summer.

Striking Matches are gearing up for an international tour with dates in the US, UK, and Europe all throughout the summer and fall, along with the release of the new record.

Megan Davies
Megan Davies is a Nashville-based, Alt-Pop Artist originally from Harrisburg, PA. She graduated from Belmont University where she studied song-writing and classical guitar. During the summer of 2013, Megan began uploading acoustic covers and mashups to YouTube – collaborating with both her sister, Jaclyn, and other artist friends in Nashville. Since then, her creative stylings have garnered her over 184 million views and 1.2 million subscribers. Her influencer status has offered up many amazing opportunities. From collaborations with the Red Cross & American Cancer Society to performing for Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Zendaya & the creators of The Greatest Showman and attending the films premiere in New York City.

While Megan enjoys producing covers and mashups, her passion lies in writing and performing her own original music. Her unique sound has been influenced by a combination of commercial pop, indie folk and experimental rock. Her debut original project, Bad Poetry EP, was released July 2017. This completely independent project has amassed over 2.7 Million Spotify streams and the title track from the EP was played on Sirius XM’s, The Coffee House station 5x per day for 5 Months. She performed the EP live across the country this past fall, opening 19 shows for YouTube heavy-weights, Boyce Avenue. As an intro to her forthcoming sophomore project, Megan’s single, “Doesn’t Matter” is available now! Her newest single “Moonlight” will be released August 3rd.

“YouTube Sensation Megan Davies’ “Doesn’t Matter” Is the New Anti-Bully Anthem” – Live Nation’s Ones To Watch

“Like a heartfelt whisper in the ear of her younger self, Davies shares pain, frustration and acceptance in a most beautiful way.” – Parade Magazine

In April 2016, Megan was the featured Artist for the Spotify curated playlist “Acoustic Covers” which received global visibility. Her catalog on Spotify maintains over 6 Million Streams per month. In June 2015, her 3-song mashup “See You Again/ Love Me Like You Do/ Sugar” reached #1 on both the US and Global Spotify Viral 50 charts. The Coffee House station on XM Radio voted Megan and fellow artist Emily Hackett’s cover of Lorde’s “Royals” the Best Cover of 2013.
