Meg Gehman and The Influence

Corn Hill Arts Festival Entertainment

Meg Gehman was born and raised in NYC and now resides in Rochester, NY. Singer, songwriter, guitarist Meg Gehman brings decades of experience as a writer and front woman for the locally based favorite cover band, Meg and The Clams (1992-2004), as well as the all-original outfits Big Backyard and This Other Life. She formed duo, and trio offshoots Inner Loop and The Howling Divas, and has played countless solo shows.

Meg has recorded a total of 6 cds, the last of which, the lyric and hook driven pop record “Leap” in 2016, was crowd-funded by Meg’s fans. Leap was co-written and produced by platinum selling R&B recording artist David Chance of the internationally successful duo, Ruff Endz.

Meg often draws comparisons to artists such as Phoebe Snow, kd lang, Joan Osborne, and Joss Stone. These days, Meg is settling in to her own place with her music and song writing. She is currently gearing up for her next chapter which will include a new cd. She is thrilled to be supported and pushed by the incredible talent surrounding her in Meg Gehman and The Influence, where she shares the stage with Ray Bellizia on guitar and vocal, Eric Davidson on bass, and Gregory Andrews on percussion and vocals.

Gehman is an amalgam of some of music’s greatest and most enduring spirits, from Van Morrison to k.d. lang and Bonnie Raitt, with an accessible sound and plenty of tasty vocal hooks” – Democrat and Chronicle
