Aside from crafting charming folk-pop, Tristen knows a thing or two about wooing a loved one on Valentine’s Day. So much so that the Nashville based singer-songwriter recently ran a unique project on Kickstarter to help all those at a loss for the perfect gift.
“You send me the song, any special things you’d like me to know about that special person, and I’ll record a cover of that song for you and dedicate it to your special someone,” she advertised on her page. Alas, there were only 10 covers available, and here is one of them, a delightfully endearing rendition of Carl Perkins’ “Forever Yours”. So, hurry on up and send it to your gal or guy before the day’s over.
In related news, Tristen’s Kickstarter continues in support of her forthcoming sophomore album, C A V E S. Mixed by UK producer Stephen Hague (New Order, Pet Shop Boys), the followup to 2011’s Charlatans at the Garden Gate is the work of two years of writing and recording in Los Angeles, Omaha, and Nashville. Preview the album with a stream of “Gold Star”.
