Tyler Meacham

By immersing herself in the open mic scene in her hometown of Richmond, VA, Tyler Meacham met her current bandmates, going on to create her debut EP, 'Property', in 2019. The lyrically inspiring, genre-fusing EP carried Meacham & her band on a national tour, building a loyal following in the process. Laid on strong foundations of narrative-forward songwriting, Tyler's musical tastes and inspirations gravitate towards self-made songwriter-producers such as Sara Bareilles, Bleachers (Jack Antonoff), and OneRepublic (Ryan Tedder). Lyrically, everything Tyler writes pivots around emotional experiences from her past, honing in on love, loss, and her personal struggle with anxiety and self-worth.
