Tristen Live at Grimey's

  • Grimey's New and Preloved Music 1060 East Trinity Lane Nashville, TN, 37216 United States (map)

"Dream Within a Dream" is the new 7-inch single from pop savant Tristen, out this May via Louisville's This Man Records. Crafted from Edgar Allan Poe's classic poem, the single - like the mononymous singer-songwriter and musician known for her "knack for penning an infectious hook" (Entertainment Weekly) - marries complex, introspective lyrics with rollicking, jangly guitars. Hailing from Nashville's underground rock scene, Tristen has established herself as a prolific, versatile musician over the past decade, whether touring in Jenny Lewis's Voyager band, collaborating and touring with artists like Vanessa Carlton and Robyn Hitchcock, or releasing three solo albums to critical acclaim. Her folk-oriented debut Charlatans at the Garden Gate (2011) earned her praise as "Nashville's best-kept secret" (The Boston Globe), while 2013's CAVES, co-produced by Stephen Hague, recast her as a "synth pop siren" (SPIN). Her most recent album, Sneaker Waves, was described by Rolling Stone as having "Nilsson-worthy power balladry," while NPR's Ann Powers called it "bursting with great melodies and hooky arrangements that tickle the ear and won't leave your brain alone." Join us for this free, all ages in-store performance by Tristen and her band in celebration of her new single release!
