Guitar World: Guitar Girl'd-Interview with Megan Reilly on Her New Album, 'The Well'

Nice interview with Megan in Guitar World touches on guitars, songwriting, and painful events in her family's past. Exclusive video of Megan and band performing "Sew the Threads" in James Mastro's Hoboken guitar shop, Guitar Bar. Gorgeous photos, too!

It was well worth the wait. Songs like “Sew the Threads Into Your Heart” and
“To Seal My Love” center around flowing melodies, insightful lyrics and Reilly’s winnowy vocals. This is a musician after my own bare-your-soul-loving heart.
The production is appropriately straightforward with Reilly’s longtime band joining her, including Steve Goulding (The Mekons, The Rumour) on drums, Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, They Might Be Giants) on bass and James Mastro (Ian Hunter, Garland Jeffreys) on lead guitar. 
With The Well, Reilly has plumbed deep into the depths of her being, extracting gorgeously crafted songs that are served up with a refreshingly honest bearing. Here Reilly talks about what it takes to make her musical magic.
