About Tristen

Pop savant, Tristen, a mononymous singer-songwriter, musician, and beloved member of Nashville’s underground scene, is known for her “knack for penning an infectious hook” (Entertainment Weekly). She has released three albums to critical acclaim: Charlatans at the Garden Gate (2011), CAVES (2013), and Sneaker Waves, which was released last year via Austin label Modern Outsider. She also performed as a member of Jenny Lewis’s live band in 2015.

Rolling Stone describes Sneaker Waves as having “Nilsson-worthy power balladry” and NPR illuminates the album as “bursting with great melodies and hooky arrangements that tickle the ear and won’t leave your brain alone. Vintage keyboards or retro-modern guitar parts enhance Tristen’s sometimes fantastical, often hilarious, always perceptive vignettes about complicated relationships, artistic ambition, and the ever-present shadow of mortality”.

A serenade with a bite, Tristen’s live band features her husband and collaborator, Buddy Hughen, on jangly and sometimes shredding electric guitar, who co-produced Sneaker Waves, as well as rotating cast of Nashville’s finest as her rhythm section.
