Megan Longwell is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter and a part of the NY based trio, Home Port. Her debut single, A Better Place, showcases an artist in the true sense of the word. If you’re sick of predictable and unoriginal songs this one’s for you. Poetic lyrics, an off-beat melody topped by Megan’s superb vocals should truly be a breath of fresh music to your ears.

She was born on a winter day
To the sun sign Aquarius
She was orphaned before her eyes
Beheld anything resembling love

She was raised by her father’s mom
With her sister and her brother
By the time she had turned thirteen
She knew only two who resembled her in some way

She was married and soon to bear
When her parents were found much alive
One a singer, one of the stage
Performers who, resembling love, could

Make the world seem a better place
Just by standing in the light
One day you and I will dance and sing
Away from here, in a world where love is love

She is mother to daughters three
With her own kin so far from home
She’s a singer beyond the crowd
A gypsy soul, resembling no one

You have made it a better place
For those underneath the sun
One day you and I will dance and sing
Away from here, in a world where love is love

What we can do when all is well…
