Nashvilles best-kept secret - The Boston Globe

Tristen has been singing since she could speak, and writing and recording her own songs since she was a teenager. Now an established touring musician with finely tuned chops and a knack for lashing exceptional melodies to her singularly poetic lyrics, she travels with a practiced backing trio of top-notch Nashville sidemen. Together, they bring Tristens lush, expertly crafted arrangements to life, giving the singer room to brandish her outsized vocals and win audiences with her powerful stage presence  performances that channel the rock n roll eclecticism of David Bowie and the creative prowess of Dolly Parton.

A native of South Side Chicago turned longtime Nashville resident, Tristen has released two critically acclaimed solo records  2011s Charlatans at the Garden Gate and 2013s CAVES  and toured extensively as a member of Jenny Lewis backing band. The folk-oriented Charlatans earned her praise as Nashvilles best-kept secret ( The Boston Globe), and the more synth-pop-o riented CAVES featured  tales of greed, alienation and heartache, made poignant but never saccharine by their electronically enhanced surroundings ( Nashville Scene).

Some artists are interested in being complicated, its almost like theyre speaking another language just to the connoisseur of the art, says Tristen. I have no interest in that. My style is not to be exclusive. Its to be inclusive. Im trying to be as clear as possible. Ive always been interested in the purest form of the idea, so that it can communicate massively. That theme is at the core of Tristens music  music that is smart but accessible, meticulously constructed but undeniably infectious.

In 2016, Tristen released her fir st book of poetry, Saturnine, a collection of 18 poems that span from the green carpet hills by San Francisco to the cold hard streets of Chicago and brim with a kaleidoscope of characters. Her third album, Sneaker Waves, will be released July 7 via Modern Outsider Records.
