PREMIERE: Through It All, Meagan Hickman is ‘Still Here’
As we approach what appears to be the light at the end of the COVID tunnel, the ever-soulful Meagan Hickman is here to ring in this new era of resurgence with a brand new single.
The Chicago-born, Nashville-based pop-soul phenom has always delivered powerful messages of self-discovery and perseverance in her music. This Friday, she releases “Still Here” at a time when this maybe-almost-post-COVID world needs a resilient new anthem.
The new single — mixed by Caleb Gilbreath (Brett Eldridge, Sierra Hull) and mastered by Frank Gagliardi — approaches the tumult of the past year-plus with unwavering determination, as it tells “the story of what happens as someone fights for empowerment, celebrates individuality, and embraces change.”
“Still Here was first born musically while experimenting with a distorted keys sound I call my ‘Dirty Wurly,'” Hickman said. “Then, the song became lyrically inspired by the emotion of the descending chords.”
Having worked through depression, Hickman offers “Still Here” as a universal rallying cry for anyone who has overcome. We have the honor of giving you the first listen below!
