Hmmmm…this is always the hard part of these experiences for me. Trying to explain how Bruce Hornsby has influenced and encouraged me in a few words is a daunting task…My name is Megan Metcalfe and I am a singer/songwriter and recording artist in Vancouver BC in Canada. I have been releasing my work independently, then for a few years with EMI Music, and now independently again. I met Bruce in 1993, back when I was very young and just getting going on my recording career. From the moment I met him to this day, Bruce has not only been a massive influence on my writing, singing and playing, but has also been a warm, enthusiastic, encouraging supporter of my work, even when people in “the industry” weren’t (like my publisher…;)

I have been able to count on Bruce for honest, constructive criticism, for solid advice, and for sincere friendship, whether or not my career has been flourishing at the time. His support has helped me not give up on myself as a performer many times and I am indebted to him.

As to why I chose “Set Me In Motion”, well..first, I’ve always loved the song. It has always held a certain magic, an “epic” quality for me that I wanted to capitalize on. Also, it feels much like my own “story” so it lends a naturalness in performance. When a song is this deep in your heart, it’s easy to sing. As a final note, this song was used in the movie, “Backdraft” which I also appreciated, since my dad is a retired fire captain who worked for 30 years to protect lives and homes. I’m pretty proud of that.

I’d like to thank Robbie Steininger for his stellar production and playing (check out the guitar solo!) on this song, and Si for the privilege of recording it and having it be HEARD.
