The mononymous singer hailing from Nashville, Tenn., released 2011’s Charlatans at the Garden Gate and 2013’s CAVES to critical acclaim. The folk-oriented Charlatans earned her praise as “Nashville’s best-kept secret” (The Boston Globe), and the more synth-pop-oriented CAVES featured “tales of greed, alienation and heartache, made poignant but never saccharine by their electronically enhanced surroundings” (Nashville Scene).

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 Tristen’s 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.

In 2016, Tristen released her first 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.

Tristen’s third record, Sneaker Waves “abounds in toothsome melodies and glistening layers of guitar and synth” (NPR) and was released on July 7, 2017 via .Modern Outsider
