Event Description

More than a dozen years into her unique career — a career with highlights including multiple records of singer/songwriter indie-pop; a chart-topping hit in Japan; a fan base stretching from Los Angeles to Tokyo; and countless solo concerts featuring little more than her acoustic guitar and breathily expressive voice — Meiko gets back to the basics with In Your Dreams

It’s her fifth album of original material, written and recorded before she left her recent home of Nashville, TN, and relocated to Germany with her little family. With its light instrumentation and melodic hooks, In Your Dreams also nods to Meiko’s self-titled debut, whose minimalist songs helped kickstart her career in 2007. Back then, she was a cash-strapped cocktail waitress in Los Angeles, struggling to fund her album’s recording sessions with the tips she earned working at the Hotel Cafe. The songs that found their way onto that debut record were sparsely arranged out of necessity; Meiko simply couldn’t afford to dish out the money for a full band. 

“I was paying people in whiskey, asking them to come to the studio and lay down some tracks in exchange for a few Jack-and-Cokes,” she remembers. “It was really simple, but there’s something beautiful about having all the time in the world and no money. With In Your Dreams, I wanted to simplify my sound and go back to the bare-boned mindset I had when I made that first record.”
