We spent the afternoon recording songs and touring the Stax Museum of American Soul. Then we sent the band off to have dinner at the Bar-B-Q Shop while we put the show together (that’s where we send all the bands that have a craving for Memphis barbecue!). And while we would love to sit here and write about how amazing a songwriter and performer she is, we’re gonna let you listen to the show and decide for yourself. Afterall, we have to get to a show. Tristen goes on at 10:30 – Hope to see you there!
Tristen is about to embark on a 3 week tour – see her in a town near you and look for her new album, Cave, in the fall!
With her warm, guileless vocals and earnest, evocative songwriting, Tristen has emerged as a truly individual talent, bridging genres and emotions to create a distinctive sound all her own. The Nashville-based songstress’ American Myth debut, Charlatans At The Garden Gate, is an ambitious and impassioned collection of finely honed modern pop, rich with exquisite arrangements and a remarkably intuitive lyrical approach. Weaving classic country, traditional rock ‘n’ roll, and reflective singer/songwriter balladry, songs such as the elegiac “Baby Drugs” and the spectral folk-tinged “Battle of the Gods” display an exceptional new artist opening herself to the world through heartfelt melodies and glorious hooks.
