Tristan Prettyman Delivers Sweet Folk Ballads to Not So Silent Night

Matt Dolloff / Mix 104.1

Last week, it was Grace Potter who performed to open Not So Silent Night. For part 2, fans were treated to rising star Tristan Prettyman and her beautifully raspy singing voice as the opening act.

Prettyman rifled through her collection of sweet, honest folk-pop tunes, the most fun of which was “The Rebound” about a man she once met at Trader Joe’s. She also put the guitar down to focus on her vocals with “Marry You.”

She also showed off some impressive guitar chops along with backup guitarist Steve Miller, especially during extended breakdown parts and on “My Oh My,” the lead single off her new album Cedar + Gold.

Still, the greatest appeal of Prettyman lies in her singing voice, which suggests a wealth of life experience that make her songs’ stories feel stunningly familiar and real.

Prettyman said on stage that her best friend lives in Boston so she’s in the city all the time. Hopefully for fans’ sake, she keeps coming back.
