She’s been mentioned before for her participation in the 2008 Barefoot Wine Beach Rescue Project. She drives a hybrid, composts, recycles, and just recently donated a song to the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. For this donation, she was given thirty green tags, which equals out to one mega-watt of solar energy, offsetting the CO2 produced in the making of her album.
Tristan Prettyman is quite the multi-talented artist.
And if you haven’t checked out her music yet, I highly recommend you do. Prettyman’s sophomore album, Hello, is full of fantastic music. It seems as though she’s found a way to mesh folk, blues, and a dash of rock/surf-rock in just the right, ear-pleasing, head-bobbing way. A track of particular note would most definitely have to be “War Outta Peace”, the same track she donated to the EBF.
If you already know about her and love her music, then you definitely don’t want to miss out on your opportunity to meet up with her, either. The next beach cleanup is happening this Saturday in San Francisco. Click here for more information and to RSVP.
To get yourself a copy of Hello, you can zoom on over to iTunes, or go directly to Tristan Prettyman’s website. While you’re over visiting her website, don’t forget to check out her blog. Her prose is just as good as her lyrics, and I leave you with this quote from her blog: “Simply put, I do this because, i am in love with music and being able to play it every night. Music creates a vibration within me that i don’t get from anything else i have ever done in my life.”
