Hailing from Nashville, Tennessee’s underground rock scene, Tristen has established herself as a prolific, versatile musician over the past decade, whether touring in Jenny Lewis’s Voyager band, collaborating and touring with artists like Vanessa Carlton and Robyn Hitchcock, or releasing three solo albums to critical acclaim. Her folk-oriented debut Charlatans at the Garden Gate (2011) earned her praise as “Nashville’s best-kept secret” (The Boston Globe), while 2013’s CAVES, co-produced by Stephen Hague, recast her as a “synth pop siren” (SPIN). Her most recent album, Sneaker Waves, released via Modern Outsider in 2017 was described by Rolling Stone as having “Nilsson-worthy power balladry,” while NPR’s Ann Powers called it “bursting with great melodies and hooky arrangements that tickle the ear and won’t leave your brain alone.” A serenade with a bite, Tristen’s live band features her husband and collaborator, Buddy Hughen — who co-produced Sneaker Waves — on shredding electric guitar, in addition to a rotating cast of Nashville’s finest as her rhythm section.
