After leaving her desk job and moving back to her hometown of Richmond, VA, Tyler Meacham spent 2018 writing & producing a scrappy new demo every month to share with her following online. Her vocally-charged, left-of-center pop music tells her story of falling down, getting back up, and finding her voice. The 25-year-old singer-songwriter turned indie pop front-woman releases her debut EP "Property" on November 22, 2019.
Produced by collaborator & bass player Chip Hale, Meacham's original acoustic demos have taken on new life in the form of a standout record that fuses synth rock with indie pop and a dash of Americana ear candy simmering under the surface.
"Meacham’s lyrics are affecting, and her delivery is timeless. I can imagine these songs sounding excellent in a zillion different styles, which is what you might say about standards that eventually enter the pop canon. The title/closing track is especially powerful. While I’m on record as praising dynamite first lines of songs, “Property” has a stunner of a closing lyric: “You don’t have to burn the house down to move all your property out.” Her words echo and dissipate, leaving you space to apply them uniquely to your own life. That’s pop music’s highest calling." -You Hear That?!
"Hailing from Richmond, VA, Meacham creates folk-infused music that transports you to another time that’s drenched in sepia."
"Whether on stage or on the record, Meacham’s performances pack a powerful punch. She has a melodic, soulful voice and a natural stage presence – raw talent that’s hard to come by. And she’s much more than just a vocalist. On one song, she’ll be strumming a guitar riff and on the next she’s tickling the ivories, all while singing the lyrics that she wrote." -Noelle Abrahams, RVA Mag
"'Moving On' has crossover potential written all over it, and with a new EP coming in the fall (if this little gem is any indication), Meacham be moving on to bigger and brighter stages shortly."
