Share this!

Sweet like thick hot chocolate on chilly a day—this is how we’d describe music by Meagan Trees.


And as Meagan Trees says so herself,

My songs are a cozy feeling, a familiar smell, a cup of tea on a rainy day.


Meagan is a Dumaguete-based singer-songwriter who’s paving her way into the Metro, and into our earphones. And with her sweet tunes and soothing melodies, we can’t help but fall into her, dare we say, haven.


If you want to get what we’re hinting about, we have Meagan Trees’ official music video for ‘Haven’ right here.

Oh the things that I long for 
Oh, how I came to be 
Oh, how you let things be


If you noticed n her video, Meagan Trees featured the serene streets of her hometown of Dumaguete. And if you want to know more about her music, and her story, we got you! We have an exclusive interview with Meagan for you right here!



Tell us about yourself. Who are you and where are you from?

Meagan: My name’s Meagan Trees and I’m and indie folk singer-songwriter from Dumaguete City.



How will you describe the music scene from your hometown?

Meagan: Peaceful. The friendship is surreal.



What have you been up to lately?

Meagan: I’ve been learning different things. Practicing a lot of guitar and reading a lot of books, figuring out softwares, thinking of the beach.



What cities or provinces in the Philippines have you played at? Which one is the most memorable to you?

Meagan: I’ve played at a fair amount of cities in Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. My most memorable is my Haven single launch in Dumaguete and my Tangerine Skies single launch in Route 196, QC.



What’s it like to be a musician away from your home where not everyone speaks your native language?

Meagan: Tough. Sometimes people tell me to speak Tagalog, instead of asking me if I can or want to try to speak it. There’s a difference. I honestly wish we’d stop this barrier that we’ve created among ourselves. After all, every language or dialect in this country is beautiful, if you don’t understand, don’t to shame it.



Who would you say are your influences locally?

Meagan: Cynthia Alexander, Clem Castro



Who are the top 3 artists you look up to from your hometown?

Meagan: Simon Alvarez, Saksak Sinakol, and Hersley Casero



What are your hopes for OPM?

I hope OPM will grow stronger.



Care to share with us your songwriting process?

I speak my mind and listen to songs and I absorb whatever I learn from it.



What are the usual themes of your music?

My songs are a cozy feeling, a familiar smell, a cup of tea on a rainy day.



We really couldn’t agree more about how Maegan describes her own music. And since we know it’s best for you to experience her music first hand, we’ll leave her October gig list down below!
