Bio details:

Megan D’Ewes Timothy was born in Rhodesia on 21 June, 1943.  After working on the local Victoria Times newspaper and various other jobs, Megan moved to California in the United States at the age of 21.  She had aspirations of becoming an actress or stuntwoman.  Initially, she had various jobs, including that of  a waitress at the Playboy Club,  before she landed her first film role in Good Morning…and Goodbye!  Megan went on to appear in a number of films, including Hells Chosen Few, The Female Bunch and The Girls From Thunder StripCharro!, in 1969, was probably the highlight as Elvis Presley played in the lead role.

During the 1960’s, Megan established herself on the local folk circuit singing at various coffee houses.  She did a tour of military bases entertaining the troops in Vietnam.  In February, 1967, she was completed a three-week engagement at the Rainbow Room in Nashville, Tennessee.

In September, 2003, at the age of 63, Megan suffered a stroke and, being unable to speak and having no family or financial support, she became a State patient.  A short documentary film about her condition and story, Chicken, was screened at an auditorium at the Samuel Merritt University in August, 2010.

In 2010 she expressed a renewed interest in music and duly sought vocal coaching with Michael Rivers.  As she pursued her goal of recording an album, the impact of her brain injuries became evident, requiring patience from those involved as they worked at a slower pace than usual.  Four years later her first CD album, As I Wander:  Songs Of Christmas, was released.  The album also featured vocalist, Dan Cobb, and singer-guitarist, Michael Rivers, and cellist, Marlene Moore.
