The Multi-talented Megan McCauley

Megan McCauley

For a girl whose friend once described her as a “gothic punk with a side-stitch of freak all wrapped up in a fashionista package,” Megan McCauley wants people to know she’s a complex character. “I am a little bit manic. I can be two completely different people,” says the 17-year-old musician, who credits her wild spirit to Janis Joplin’s raw sexuality, yet strong and independent persona. “My music is a bit of my biker side. I am a bit of a Nicole Richie.”

The Ohio native, who makes her debut on the Fantastic Four soundtrack with, “Die for You,” has been singing all her life and taught herself to play a range of instruments. But after witnessing the cellorock ensemble, Rasputina, in concert, she became obsessed with learning the strings. “I tried the violin for a little while and that didn’t work out,” she says. “I bought a used cello for $400 and taught myself how to play. As soon as it happened, I thought ‘This is my instrument.’”

Megan is also extremely adamant about preserving her outspoken nature, even posting an adult-language disclaimer on her Web site bio, rather than censor herself and the reality of being a loner at school or witnessing domestic violence at home. “It’s not hard for me to talk about it,” she says. “Everybody goes through these things in your life.”
