Tyler Meacham delves into grief and hope with new single ‘dream house’

Emerging indie artist Tyler Meacham has released her poignant new single ‘dream house’. The inspiration behind ‘dream house’ stems from a deeply challenging time in Meacham’s life. As she grappled with the heartbreaking news of her mother and cousin’s concurrent cancer diagnoses, Meacham sought comfort in an unexpected place: the Zillow app, browsing real estate listings, where dreams of a future filled with possibilities provided a brief respite from despair.

As composer, lyricist and producer on the track, Meacham crafted a folk-inspired sound that marks a departure from her previous work while retaining the essence of her pop songwriting prowess. Recorded at 6807 Studios and Go West Recording in Richmond, Virginia, ‘dream house’ showcases Meacham’s evolution as an artist unafraid to embrace vulnerability and authenticity.

Reflecting on the songwriting process, Meacham shares, “I thought I was writing a song about real estate—it turned out to be a song about grief. Sometimes what we dream about for our lives is forced to change, and it’s okay to grieve those changes.” With ‘dream house,’ Meacham invites listeners to acknowledge the complexities of grief and find solace in shared experiences.
