Tristan Short Info

Tristan ; The Soulful Lifestyle

Tristan's music can best be described as feel good vintage Acid Jazz music with the energy,
vibe and sound of 2016 by some of today’s best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe.
Funky rhythm-guitars, Hammond, Fender Rhodes and synths, and a rhythm section that
has been playing together for decades.
All this gives singer Evelyn Kallansee the solid ground to make her beautiful vocals shine. It
will bring you back to that great warm sound of the seventies, with a fresh breeze of influences
from the present. Well-produced recordings and live performances often joined by a
horn-section, a string section and a host of backing vocalists.

While the music may hold clear echo's from bands like Toto, Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy
and classic acid jazz acts like Incognito and Brand New Heavies; what makes this band particularly stand out is the high energy levels within the grooves and the quality of the writing
and arranging.
Tristan's - “Full Power” was already a startling fresh debut from the band, with their follow-up
“ 2nd Phase” not doing under in anyways. After all, they both went straight up the UK Soulcharts
to nr1. The albums were received very well by the press and it has brought them many
places outside their home country and a fan-base increasing rapidly all over the world.

It is because of this success that the band continues to surprise again with a brand new record
entitled “Lifestyle”. “ Lifestyle” reflects more than ever the bands whereabouts in the last
year, as a group and on a personal level.. Intensive touring leaves its marks and the titletrack
“Lifestyle” gives you an insight of their all day ‘Rock and Roll’ life, roughly ruined relationships
and fear for falling in love again, to mention a few . Those lyrics will tell a story of their
way of living, their passion for music and the love for the life they live, although it isn’t the easy
way. In that sense it’s also a metaphor for everybody’s life’s; as long as you follow your
dreams, no matter what other people think or say, you can live your “soulful lifestyle”

Although all all members of the group have their own studio facilities, they always choose to
record the basics of the songs in the German studio of Sebastiaan, the drummer of the group.
Being away from home and all distractions makes it possible to focus entirely on the music
and direction of the new songs. After one of those long day of recording sessions they listened
at night to some of those nice ‘Doobie Brothers’ and “Incognito” live videos and that’s
where they came up with the idea of adding some extra vocal “colors” to this new album,
besides Evelyn her powerful voice.

All three-guest singers add totally different flavors to their musical pallet. All invited to spice
things up and expand the overall diversity in tone to the max without loosing that true recognizable
Tristan stamp:
22-year-old KASPER adds that Rufus/Chaka Khan era feel, while Italian singer Francesco Cottone
brings you that nice “Steely Dan/ Donald Fagen” vibe. US soul singer Heston is as always;
Sweet and harmonic, the pace is just right for the sophisticated modern soul room and his
vocals are a “soul delight’!

Listening to the new material will surely convince you that the group is full of drive and commitment
to provide the listener with honest music of the highest quality level.
So if you enjoy well written, intelligently arranged Acid Jazz performed by great musicians,
then "Lifestyle" might just be the album you are looking for!
