Last Town Chorus is the nom de musique of contemporary singer/songwriter/lap steel guitarist Megan Hickey (born near Pittsburgh, PA on June 26, 1974). Although she was always interested in music, Hickey didn't get serious about playing and writing until she moved to New York City in 1999. "I grew up in a little town and my childhood was quite idyllic," the redheaded singer says. "I like it more now, in the rear view mirror, but Pittsburg was a livable sweet city. In the '80s the steel business came to a halt and after years of glory as a center of winning sports teams and heavy industry the city declined a bit. Now it's reinvented itself as a high tech and service center. It's still a nice, hilly mellow place to live."
