Vanessa Carlton’s latest EP BLUE POOL features four tracks written for the upcoming full length album Liberman (out in October) which was named after a colorful oil painting by her grandfather Alan J. Lee, whose given name was Liberman. The four tracks on the EP include “Take It Easy” and “Blue Pool” which will be found on the upcoming album as well as “Operator (Live Living Room Session)” and “Nothing Where Something Used To Be (Live Living Room Session).” A complete catalog of the Living Room Sessions will be available on a deluxe version of the album in October.

These tracks reflect Vanessa’s current state of mind since moving from NYC to Nashville, marrying husband John McCauley (Deer Tick) and having a baby girl. The simple instrumentation mixed with her wistful vocals and poignant lyrics bring you into her world and showcase a new side to this accomplished songwriter.

Stay tuned for upcoming details on the upcoming album Liberman and new tracks!

Tristen
"Nashville's best-kept secret" (The Boston Globe) singer-songwriter Tristen, gained notice as an artist with "pop hooks and pure inspiration" (NPR) through her 2011 folk-oriented record Charlatans at the Garden Gate and was later recast as "a synth-pop siren" (SPIN) with her 2013 record CAVES.

Tristen grew up on the south side of Chicago, the grandchild of immigrants. Singing since she could speak, by the time she was a teenager she began writing her own songs and recording. She went on to study communication theory at DePaul University until the combination a failed marriage engagement and a deep love for David Bowie inspired her to move to Nashville to try to make it as a songwriter.

Quickly gaining attention in Nashville for being "a new breed of female songwriter", local shows turned into national touring, and before long Tristen gained a reputation for having a "preternatural sense of melody, energetic live shows and emotive vocals " (American Songwriter) and bringing along Nashville's hottest musicians as her backing band. Both of her albums were named the best local album by the Nashville Scene and placed in American Songwriter's top 50 albums of their respective years.

Tristen has emerged as a truly individual songwriter, bridging genres and emotions to create a distinctive sound all her own. Her finely honed modern pop is rich with exquisite arrangements and a remarkably intuitive lyrical approach. Tristen spent 2015 as a backing singer and keyboard player in Jenny Lewis's band and released her first book of poetry, Saturnine, in 2016 which features a foreword by rock and roll poet Ezra Furman.
Tristen's new record Sneaker Waves is due out in 2017.
