Tristen
"Nashville's best-kept secret" (The Boston Globe) singer-songwriter Tristen, gained notice as an artist with "pop hooks and pure inspiration" (NPR) through her 2011 folk-oriented record Charlatans at the Garden Gate and was later recast as "a synth-pop siren" (SPIN) with her 2013 record CAVES.

Tristen grew up on the south side of Chicago, the grandchild of immigrants. Singing since she could speak, by the time she was a teenager she began writing her own songs and recording. She went on to study communication theory at DePaul University until the combination a failed marriage engagement and a deep love for David Bowie inspired her to move to Nashville to try to make it as a songwriter.

Quickly gaining attention in Nashville for being "a new breed of female songwriter", local shows turned into national touring, and before long Tristen gained a reputation for having a "preternatural sense of melody, energetic live shows and emotive vocals " (American Songwriter) and bringing along Nashville's hottest musicians as her backing band. Both of her albums were named the best local album by the Nashville Scene and placed in American Songwriter's top 50 albums of their respective years.

Tristen has emerged as a truly individual songwriter, bridging genres and emotions to create a distinctive sound all her own. Her finely honed modern pop is rich with exquisite arrangements and a remarkably intuitive lyrical approach. Tristen spent 2015 as a backing singer and keyboard player in Jenny Lewis's band and released her first book of poetry, Saturnine, in 2016 which features a foreword by rock and roll poet Ezra Furman.
Tristen's new record Sneaker Waves is due out in 2017.
