Sounds of Secret Stages 2017 #18: Tristen

Alabama in August is a pretty hot place, and it's not just because of the heat (and the humidity). Secret Stages has been keeping things hot in Birmingham for years, staying true to their mission of showcasing musical talent from across the South (and beyond). This year is no different. If you're free August 4-5, you might just take a jaunt down to Bham to check out this Dixie dandy.

Nashville songbird Tristen has a voice to launch a flotilla. Her halcyon voice delivers as if bathed in a golden glow, though her lyrics aren't exactly what you'd call sweetness and light. Vintage-inspired instrumentation gives her a strong throwback vibe, and everything just purrs together perfectly. Rather stunning stuff indeed.
