There’s nothing like a great mashup, and singer/songwriter Megan Davies has crafted one for a good cause.
Filmed with her younger sister Jaclyn, the video pairs Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire” with Ellie Goulding’s “Burn” for an acoustic cover that highlights the strengths in their individual vocals.
I admit I would never have thought of these two tracks for a mashup, but it’s a clever idea and has a soothing, melodic vibe to it.
Megan and Jaclyn performed the songs in support of the American Red Cross’ #2Steps2Minutes challenge, the organization’s home fire safety awareness campaign.
Megan gained recognition over the past three years through YouTube, posting multiple covers, often in collaboration with Jaclyn, that have earned views in the hundreds of thousands and has solidified her space among Spotify listeners. Her talent and the fast-moving platform that YouTube offers allowed her to eventually leave her day job and fully pursue her music. Based in Nashville, she graduated from college with a major in songwriting and a minor in guitar.
She has since released a couple of EPs, and t
he young musician is currently finishing up her debut album in the studio as she travels the country on a mini promotional run. Stay tuned for more details!
