Editorial Reviews

2008 sophomore album from the singer/songwriter and former Roxy model from San Diego, California. Tristan began playing music in front of friends at their homes and they encouraged her to begin writing her own material. Now, she is poised to become a star in '08. Recorded over six weeks in London with Martin Terefe and Sacha Skarbek, Hello delivers on the promise Prettyman raised with her 2005 debut album Twentythree. 11 tracks including the single 'Madly'. Virgin.

If you like music in the vein of Sarah McLachlan or Norah Jones, you simply must check out the music of this young musician named Tristan Prettyman.

I discovered her two albums Twentythree (2005) and Hello (2008) a few days ago, and I can't stop listening.

Highly, highly recommended.

She's a bit more country than Sarah, and a bit less hokey-folksy than Norah Jones. But she gives great melody with a terrific voice. (Oops, did I just say that?) She actually does a dead-ringer for Norah in the song "Blindfold" (not one of my favorites, personally, though).

Tristan Prettyman is just an amazing original talent still waiting to be discovered. Somewhere between Beth Orton's soulful vocals and Norah Jones' earthy tunes, Tristan holds her own distinctive voice and guitar play. Opening track "Hello" (one of my favorites) pulls you in with quirky guitar and edgy yet smooth vocals, and sets the tone for the rest of this folk-alt-pop album that will have you drift off to the country-side river or beach somewhere. The songs are inoffensive and light, yet never lack gut and emotion; this rare combination adds sophistication and entices many repeated listenings. As other reviewers have indicated, there isn't one bad track on this album. Definitely one of the better investments I've made this year and really a steal at this price point.

Amazon recommended Tristan Prettyman's Hello...x to me based on my purchases/ratings of Sonya Kitchell's CDs. After listening to the samples, I decided to give it a try. I was expecting some similar pop/folk to what I had enjoyed from Kitchell. I have to say that after listening to this for about a month, I just haven't connected with it the way that I had hoped I would. The instrumentation is pretty good, but not outstanding. It slants toward acoustic and slide guitar with the occasional groove. I actually found this to be the best aspect of Hello..x. Unfortunately that means that the lyrics and vocals don't hold up their end of the bargain. On "Echo", the repeating of the word echo in the chorus is predictable and trite. If it were coming from a teen pop queen, it might be considered clever, but from a grown artist it brings more of a groan. The "additional vocalists" on "Just A Little Bit" are used in a way that seems like an attempt to pattern after Pink Floyd's "Brick In The Wall", but it is nowhere near as successful. While a chorus by definition is repetitive between verses, Hello..x is littered with lyrics that are repetitive *within* the chorus as evidenced by "when i do, you're gonna hear an echo" repeated three times in the chorus of "Echo". "Hello", "California Girl", and "You Got Me" have similar problems. This unfortunately makes the songs monotonous. Vocally, Prettyman has nothing to make her stand out from a large pack of singer/songwriters who are just plain average. While there's nothing that jumps out and makes you want to run away screaming, there's also nothing about her vocal delivery that grabs hold of you and makes you want to hear songs over and over. I would contrast this to my listening experience with KT Tunstall.Read more ›

Tristan Prettyman is much more than just another pretty face, she is an accomplished songwriter (she wrote all of the songs for this album) and a gifted performer. In short, she's the real thing, and not a product of post-production magic or marketing. There are many artists out there, Kelly Clarkson for instance, that I feel produce very good music, but with much help from lots of technology and publicity. Tristan feels more...authentic. Indeed, her songs are bright, spirited, and catchy. There are few songs on this album that fail to reach the bar that she has set for herself, with "In Bloom" being in my opinion the weakest offering here. This is a very well executed album from a talented musician that I can only hope we see more of in the future.

Buy her newest "Cedar + Gold" before you try listening to this. I only kept three of the songs from this offering. And would have given up on Prettyman. But - I listened to "Cedar + Gold" first; a top-rate offering. I look forward to her future offerings, but will not look back.

Slightly county-sounding, Prettyman's lovely voice and catchy rhythms make this a perfect album to listen to while at work, on the road, or cooking dinner. Highly recommended.

I'm not one that usually writes a review, mainly because I'm just not all that good at it. But this album deserves that I just give it a shout out. My first listen thru was like, there is not a bad tune on this album. Second time thru was even better.

Favorites thus far Blindfold, War Out of Peace and You Got Me.

This is a definite buy if you are a Tristan fan.

Being what may have been one of about only a hundred people who picked up the debut album from Tristan Prettyman, I found a breezy summertime disk that was a great listen as long as the weather was as sunny of what was found on the album. And since sadly not many checked out her first album, her first single off the follow up Hello...x follows the template created for that first album down to the chorus repeating the title three time, this time being Madly instead of Love, Love, Love. But Madly isn't too derivative thanks to some well placed hand claps and a sing along chorus that should replace Bubbly in the overplayed category on the radio sometime soon.

But it is elsewhere on the album where her growth shines through. The album does starts out with the sunny California fireside bounce of Hello and Echo, but it quickly takes a big turn to the Deep South with the on the front porch blues of California Girl that morphs when an eclectic guitar takes the song somewhere else near the end. Also fitting the blues genre is Just a Little Bit which ends with Tristan singing over a bunch of guys hoping to bring her down to her knees. Handshake could have had the most infectious bassline of the year if it weren't for Death Cab for Cutie's I Will Possess Your Heart and can have even the most uncoordinated guys try to break out a dance move or two.

The high point of Hello...x is War Out of Peace a driving song which that may be best heard when your are driving yourself along a country road with the windows rolled down with nothing sounding you but rows of corn on a nice summer day. Then there is Don't Work Yourself Up, a soft song that slowly evolves into a wall of sound with multiple vocals overlapping to great effect. So be sure to pick up Hello...x this summer when you are heading down to the beach or just the local swimming pool as it will get you ready for the season.
