Tristan Prettyman tour dates

Tristan Prettyman

Virgin Records singer-songwriter and guitarist Tristan Prettyman has announced seven weeks of summertime live dates, sharing the bill with G. Love and the John Butler Trio.

Tristan's second Virgin Records album 'Hello' has been her career breakout, debuting in the Top 30 of Billboard's Top 200 albums chart, and at No. 2 on its Top Digital Albums listing. The album has sold nearly 40,000 copies in its first two months of release – as many as her debut album twenty-three sold in its first year on the market.

Prettyman has recently appeared on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno and Last Call with Carson Daly, Fox Business Network's Happy Hour, E!'s Daily Ten and Extra.

The romantic, blues-flavored first single and video, "Madly," which sparked Hello's recent surge to No. 2 on iTunes' chart of most-downloaded albums, and even a rebound of twenty-three to the Top 50 in the same chart, remains in VH1 and MTVU rotation.

Entertainment Weekly recently praised Prettyman's "brisk vocals on 'Echo'...the Southern-laced 'A Little Bit' and the slow-burning 'California Girl,' also pointing out 'In Bloom' as a "lushly orchestrated ballad that could've been a lost track from Fiona Apple's Tidal" -- summing up Tristan's talent as "maturing by the minute."

Prettyman also performs at the three remaining volunteer beach cleanup and restoration events (details below), sponsored by the Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project, in partnership with the Surfrider Foundation.

'Hello' was recorded in London with the British producers and songwriters Martin Terefe (KT Tunstall) and Sacha Skarbek (James Blunt, Tunstall). With its gorgeous and expressive blend of warm vocalism, finger-picked acoustic guitar, pedal-steel, Wurlitzer, Hammond organ, and strings, 'Hello' is in large measure a tribute to the innovative and timeless folk and country-blues fusions of The Band, Joni Mitchell, and Bob Dylan.
