Hey! We are Megan, Katey and Ryan - AKA "The Bundys". We grew up in Cincinnati, OH and we were born and raised on music. Influenced by the likes of John Denver, Ryan Adams, Simon and Garfunkel and Dolly Parton these icons were a big part of our musical tastes. Growing up, we all taught ourselves how to play guitar and soon after we each started to write songs. Although growing up we would always play music together in the house, we didn’t begin to actually write music with one another until later on.
In 2010, Megan moved to Nashville, TN to chase the illusive country music dream. While recording her first EP a few years later, she asked her two siblings to join her to sing harmony. It was this moment that changed our lives forever. We realized that we were discovering something special, so we unanimously chose to pursue this Nashville dream together!
Over the next two years, we battled with competing schedules, school, work and distance. After a brief appearance on Fox’s The X Factor, we had to make a decision about the direction of the band. The more we wrote and played together, the clearer it became that this was what we were born to do. So in order to fund our first project, we decided to launch a Kickstarter campaign. Thanks to all of our supportive and amazing fans we were blessed with the opportunity to finally create the music we were so driven to make.
We traveled down to Dockside Studios in Maurice, Louisiana twice for recording sessions in 2014 and 2015. Guided by producer Justin Tocket, we aimed to create a record that describes who we are as a family and what we wanted to say as a band. Our debut album Louisiana Avenue was released in September of 2015.
After a successful launch, Louisiana Avenue spent time on the iTunes “Singer-Songwriter” charts. Riding this wave of exhilaration, we took the momentum and began playing our music all around Nashville and various other Southern and Midwestern cities. After playing such gigs as Americana Festival, Musicians Corner, and the famous Bluebird Café, we were given the opportunity to open for Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter LeAnn Rimes, on her “Today is Christmas” tour. This opportunity of a lifetime gave us the chance to expose our dream to thousands of fans and meet some incredible people along the way.
So far in 2017 we’ve all been so focused on writing some great songs for all of you to hear. Not to mention, we got to experience an incredibly joyous time when our own Katie got married this summer! With A TON of things in the works, we are so excited to share all of it with you in the coming months. Our newest single, “King”, was received so well and we were ecstatic that y’all liked – it’s a small taste of everything to come! We feel that our upcoming EP Before I Go is a great representation of how we have evolved as individuals and as a band. The new EP tells the stories not only of each of us, but it tells the stories of family members and various other people that we've met along our journey in this illustrious chase.
