Black Friars Social Club
Mark Panick isn't a man of narrow vision. And his Black Friars Social Club project is just one example. He also front the rock juggenaut known as Razorhouse. He writes with his dark roots rock roots planted firmly, but don't be fooled: he may be a composer entranced by the darkness of the human condition, but he isn't one to be pigeonholed. He's a lover of campy art flicks as much as he is the visceral source of your next trip. His recordings are rife with unabashed sexuality, gutter-punk abandon and tasty grooves. Every Panick song is a standalone odyssey—proof that he isn't defined by structure but by the inner workings of his madcap mind. He marches to the beat of his own drum, wails on it with a sledgehammer and isn't afraid to bring you along into the swirling chaos.

Chicago Native, Meagan Hickman’s new album “SIGHTLINES” takes a direct look into the raw, electric, complex growth of a woman, musician, writer, producer, sister, daughter, lover, and friend. With catchy hooks, memorable grooves, and honest lyrics, Hickman’s message sheds light on life’s daily obstacles and human struggles; urging listeners to alter their perceptions to create new and fresh perspectives.

“Sightlines is an explosion of talent, its eleven tunes ranging stylistically from a straight-ahead rock anthem (the fantastic opener, “Seize the Day”) to sweetly twangy country-pop (“Not That Girl”); there’s even an R&B ballad (“Time Moves On”) that Aretha could’ve recorded (and what the hell, might yet).” – Newcity Music

A graduate of Boston’s Berklee College Music, Meagan’s journey started long before college. She began her training at the age of 6, touring the world as a member of the renowned Anima Singers. Her work since then, both onstage as an artist and behind the scenes as a production coordinator, has kept her touring nationwide. From 2011 to 2012, Meagan completed her first coast to coast US tour in support of her debut EP, “On My Way.” In the Summer of 2015 Meagan toured extensively throughout the Midwest and East Coast, promoting her most recent, full-length album, Sightlines. When not on the road, Meagan spends her time inspiring young artists, by teaching voice, piano, and songwriting lessons, as well as instructing group classes at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago.

As a performer, Meagan’s love for music and positive messages come across effortlessly. Her ability to connect with audiences and share her experiences has afforded her opportunities to play some of Chicago’s most well respected venues including The Metro, Lincoln Hall, Schubas, Double Door, Cubby Bear, Mayne Stage, Evanston SPACE, Navy Pier, Daley Plaza, and more!
.
She has also shared the stage with established national and international acts such as UK artist Lucy Rose, Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band), Liz Longley, Lawrence, The O'Mys, The Heard, Santah, Waters, and Tim Stop.
