Whether she was touring the world with internationally recognized choirs or performing national commercial jingles – Meagan’s love for singing and writing has always served as her true north. While attending high school at the Chicago Academy for the Arts, Meagan chose to put her classical aspirations aside to pursue the world of pop and soul music and attend Berklee College of Music. With influence and inspiration from artists like Sara Bareilles, Jill Scott, Allen Stone, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Wonder, and Ben Rector, it's easy to see how Meagan's ability to connect with audiences has afforded her the opportunity to play some of Chicago’s most well-respected venues as well as those coast to coast.
Meagan’s first, full-length album "Sightlines" was released in 2015 and brought her diverse audiences a blend of soulful, pop-rock driven anthems such as "Seize the Day," "He's my Man" and "Love the Love". With catchy hooks, memorable grooves, and honest lyrics, her music sheds light on life’s daily obstacles and human struggles; urging listeners to alter their perceptions to create new and fresh perspectives.
"I love knowing I could potentially positively influence a life -- whether it's a smile, or a feeling of inclusiveness.” says Hickman “Maybe I can inspire a new point of view and make them feel that they're not alone and that there is hope! I think this [hope] is something we all struggle with. My goal with my music is to encourage that deeper sense of community support!"
Over the last several years Meagan has also worked as a production coordinator with such acts as Walk the Moon, Goo Goo Dolls, Gavin DeGraw, Echosmith, Grimes, and Santigold. Working both as a performer and on the music business side, Meagan has been able to acquire the knowledge, experience, and understanding needed to fuel her passion, create opportunities, and seize each day to the fullest!
Most recently in the Fall of 2018, Meagan released new singles ‘Together’ and ‘Unique’ – providing listeners around the world with her lyrics of love, empowerment, self-discovery, and the power of female camaraderie.
“TOGETHER is an empowering, anthemic song that shows both the struggle and power of the human (Female) voice and the strength that we have to not only to adapt, change, and survive, but to make this world a better place "Together".
Meagan is already back in the studio recording her next batch of songs and is excited to release new music over the next year. When not touring, performing, writing, or recording, Meagan can be found managing her successful business as a voice and piano instructor. In her spare time, she enjoys running, the outdoors, reading, traveling, and spending quality time with animals.
