Tristan Prettyman

it seems like girls with strong voices are in right now, like Duffy (co-incidently, check out the Mercury music showcase at SXSW for her first US performance).

Check out Tristan Prettyman, she writes these beautiful little acoustic pop songs to back her tremendous voice. It's not like KT Tunstall and those, her song structure is more interesting. She also has a great falsetto. Anyway, check out a track below, what do you have to lose?

"Hello (Acoustic)" by Tristan Prettyman

February 15, 2008 — New York, NY — Singer-songwriter and guitarist Tristan Prettyman has started her tour along with G. Love & Special Sauce in support of her new album entitled Hello. The album will be released April 15, 2008, on Virgin Records and is an appealing portrait of this freewheeling San Diego, CA, native as she narrates stories about her life, loves, and heartbreaks. “I really wanted the album to be a reflection of me,” Prettyman says. “If someone were to say, ‘Tell me about yourself,’ I would just hand them a copy of Hello and say, ‘Here, this is everything you need to know.’”

Now with Hello, Prettyman says she’s “stepped it up a notch,” chalking up the artistic leap between twentythree and Hello to the confidence that comes from incessant touring (“we were able to record pretty much everything live because I had toured for so long”) and just the passage of time. “I have grown so much in the last two years,” she says. “I’ve gone through so many changes and I think the album definitely reflects that. It's more grown-up, and it just feels legit. I’ve never been more excited about anything in my life as I am with this record. It is so me.” [Tristan’s songs are] “salted with a bluesy defiance and her own throaty whisper, making these crank-up-the-volume choruses on songs like “Madly” all the tastier.” – Marie Claire.

Prettyman will be debuting her new single “Madly” on Last Call with Carson Daly March 18, and appearing on the May cover of Foam Magazine.
