Tristan Prettyman Gets Ready To Tour With G. Love

Singer-songwriter and guitarist Tristan Prettyman will hit the road in February along with G. Love & Special Sauce in support of her new album entitled Hello. The album will be released April,15 2008, on Virgin Records and is an appealing portrait of this freewheeling San Diego, CA, native as she narrates stories about her life, loves, and heartbreaks. “I really wanted the album to be a reflection of me,” Prettyman says. “If someone were to say, ‘Tell me about yourself,’ I would just hand them a copy of Hello and say, ‘Here, this is everything you need to know.’”

Now with Hello, Prettyman says she’s “stepped it up a notch,” chalking up the artistic leap between twentythree and Hello to the confidence that comes from incessant touring (“we were able to record pretty much everything live because I had toured for so long”) and just the passage of time. “I have grown so much in the last two years,” she says. “I’ve gone through so many changes and I think the album definitely reflects that. It's more grown-up, and it just feels legit. I’ve never been more excited about anything in my life as I am with this record. It is so me.”
