All-Country Artist Lydia Loveless has detailed allegations of profound sexual harassment by Chicago musician Mark Panick, the home partner of Bloodshot Records co-founder Nan Warshaw. The singer seems to be unfolding to come out after last week's revelations about the alleged emotional abuse and sexual neglect of the musician Ryan Adams, a former Bloodshot artist.
On Friday, Loveless wrote on Twitter "Not at all surprising that a label that allowed a man to catch, paw and mentally disturb me for over five years, still suffers Ryan Adams as a fucking genius. "She followed the post with a statement about Instagram." I want to break into a million pieces and it was hard to write, "she wrote Saturday. "But I made an angry tweet yesterday and felt it was necessary. I know it will cause problems for myself and a lot of other people, but I'm tired of carrying it around."
Loveless describes Loveless " casual predation "by Panick, as she says, found her on events sponsored by Bloodshot Records, with whom Loveless released five LPs between 2011 and 2017." I didn't know who to tell about these behaviors because I was scared for, as for me, there are plays, and Mark was part of the label from my eyes-my label, "she wrote. She continued to account for an event from 2015. "He approached me … and while he rested his hand between my buttocks, he told me he loved my messy freak because he reminded him of the way girls' hair in high school would care after they blew him. "
Loveless says her concerns were brushed by Warshaw, but the label eventually offered to ban Panick from events. "I don't think Bloodshot has viciously encouraged this behavior, but instead quietly to protect their brand," she continued. "And it has actually been covered in my eyes since behavior only ceased when I was informed, they wanted to start signing more women."

In the aftermath of Loveless & # 39; account, both Warshaw and Bloodshot co-founder Rob Miller released individual statements. In her, Warsaw Loveless apologizes for "something hell or even unpleasant" due to her "actions or actions." She then says she's chosen to "get away from Bloodshot." Miller, meanwhile, confirms Loveless & # 39; account as "essentially and unfortunately," even though he disagrees with "certain characterizations contained in the content of recent social media." He claims he had called on Loveless to come up with his account and that "there has never been an attempt to cover it, reduce it or reject the blame for it." He also clarifies that Panick "does not represent us in any way, he is not & # 39 ; with the "mark, and he does not have our ear." "" The shame, humiliation, and anger I feel about this is, I fully understand a fraction of what she feels, "continues he. "To know that I did not see her discomfort as it happened, is something that I will forever regret." Read their statements fully below.
Panick also shared a brief statement on Twitter. "I will not void your feelings by defending myself from these allegations," he wrote. "I have never set out to make anyone uncomfortable. I rightly apologize if something I did made someone feel insecure and uncomfortable."
 According to a statement issued to Pitchfork Loveless will no longer work with Bloodshot, although the mark says she is recording an album and exploring opportunities for the next chapter of her career. "
" It was agreed that her presence while working on her personal life would be a distraction to the staff and the artists and all their great work. It would be too early to speculate right now what her involvement will be in the future, "they continued.
