Tristan Prettyman Biography
Prettyman chronicles the experience on her new album, the raw, emotionally charged Cedar + Gold, which finds her sifting through the wreckage of her relationship and emerging stronger on the other side. “I started writing songs from a place that was so deep and honest, where I didn’t hold anything back,” she says. “It felt so good. I was like, ‘This is what music is about — being able to release what is trapped inside of you.’ Whenever anything ached or caused me pain, I’d tell myself, ‘Save it for the record.’”
Anya Marina Biography
"Someone wise--and probably now dead--once said that part of being creative was merely "making yourself available" to the muse (whatever mysterious thing that is). For me, that means going for a walk. I walk a lot. While walking, I tend to get hit with ideas which I'll sing into my phone recorder so I won't forget them. This is how I conceive, write, and edit a lot of my songs."
