Since the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater is starting out with country acts and because I support it's certain success, I'm venturing out of the city more than usual. In Tristen I may have found something I like. Okay, not downright country but also not ambient jazz. She calls herself neo-traditionalist pop, and who can disagree? Her album Charlatans At The Garden Gate'is due out in February but you can enjoy these previews now and free downloads at her site. (The pic is borrowed off the interweb).
