2011 Tristan Mackay
|Holding On To You |
|Don't Let Me In|
Tristan Mackay first picked up a guitar at the age of 14 after hearing the Eric Clapton ‘Unplugged’ album. This started his life long love for blues guitar music and the storytelling songs of Dylan, Young and Springsteen.
He self recorded and released his first two E.P’s ‘Tales from a bedroom orchestra’ and ‘Live from the lounge’. Although these were only produced and sold from his bedroom ‘studio’, his track ‘The Wine and Me’ was featured in the television show ‘Skins’, as well as being a recommended track on Indiestore.
In 2010, Tristan was discovered on myspace by Grammy award winning producer Martin Levan (John Martyn, Andrew Lloyd Webber) who invited him to his studio to lay down demos.
Later that year they embarked on a collaboration to produce Tristan’s debut album ‘Out Along the Wire’. With a team of outstanding musicians, including Pete Van Hooke (Mike and the Mechanics, Van Morrision) and friend John Garden (Scissor Sisters) as well as a cameo organ performance from Paul Carrack, the album of all original tracks is due for release in this month!
