NY-based, eclectic pop/rock songstress/music producer, TRISTN, releases her track, “Anywhere But Here,” from her upcoming album, January, due out September 8, 2017. TRISTN worked with Steve Kupillas (Oak and Ash, Brand New), and co-produced the album. “Anywhere But Here” is about escaping from a frustrating, sad reality. TRISTN recalls being fearless as a child and yearns for that fearlessness again on this track.
After experimenting with band dynamics for a few years and jet-setting to and from Los Angeles, TRISTN returned to New York in 2016 to focus on performing and writing as a solo artist. Her musical influences range from Yellowcard, Coldplay to Skylar Gray. TRISTN’s first demo, “Remember Me,” successfully caught the attention of producer Kupillas who worked closely with TRISTN on developing her universally appealing sound. Every song on January narrates true events in TRISTN’s life.
Her first single “Nothing to Say (Nothin’)”,produced by Kupillas and TRISTN, and co-produced by Nick Carbone (drummer for Interscope / BadBoy artist French Montana) is a witty song and conversational piece about gossip, exposing those who talk about others but are too afraid to speak face to face. During the production of this song, TRISTN brought Carbone on as co-producer, giving the song a distinct character (including the sampled chicken sounds). It was mastered by Ted Jensen (Norah Jones, Muse, Green Day) and showcases this emerging writer’s natural knack infectious hooks.
Stay tuned for more music, videos and show announcements surrounding the release of January.
From the artist : “Anywhere But Here is my favorite song in this album. It’s about escaping from a frustrating, sad reality – feeling trapped most of my childhood. When I was a kid, I was absolutely fearless. I miss that feeling, really believing that anything is possible.
I wrote it when I was feeling trapped, and I wanted to remind myself of the brave little kid I was – how amazing it must be to be fearless again.”
