About Me: CAEMBRIA was formed in April 2012.... SOJOURN, the current project, is best described as acoustic or folk, dream folk, ethereal folk... Lead vocalist, Megan Brown, hails from Massachusetts. Her vocals can be best described as sweet and lilting, with a touch of Celtic/Gaelic. Megan performed mostly during her teenage years as a soloist, in choruses, and in musicals, She also performs as a soloist at her church. Megan had vocal training throughout high school and some of college. Megan drew inspiration from such artists as Celine Dion, Jewel, Sarah McLachlan, and Ingrid Michaelson. An avid animal lover she owns a pet sitting and dog walking business. And if you listen closely to some of the songs, you can hear her pet birds Phoenix & Phoebe contributing to the vocals!.... Singer/songwriter John Murphy from New Hampshire recognized Megan's unique vocals and thought she might do well as the lead vocalist. John, a spiritual/religious Roman Catholic, draws his inspiration from faith, nature, life, circumstances. Music-wise, he prefers classical music, chant, Irish folk, etc. You might find all these expressed through the lyrics and music. In college, he was in a “new wave” cover band, the "Ulster Boys". Throughout the years he has done side projects in lo-fi space pop/rock.
