Famously discovered busking by Grammy Award winning producer Martin Levan, singer/songwriter and guitarist Tristan Mackay has gone on to write and record two number one iTunes Blues albums.
The release of debut album Out Along The Wire in 2012 saw Tristan promoted from performing on the high street to opening shows for Robben Ford, Eric Johnson, Beth Hart and countless others.
His second, all acoustic album Wire & Wood, released in April, received acclaim from critics, who have compared his music to Jeff Buckley, Eric Clapton and John Mayer.
His story and music has received widespread media coverage, including in The Evening Standard, The Sun and national TV and radio, and he has had features in Guitarist and Blues Magazine.
A rare crossover of blues and folk with mainstream appeal, Tristan has performed multiple live sessions and interviews for BBC Radio 2, where his songs have received national airplay as well as being used in global adverts and Channel 4’s Skins.
‘Easily able to captivate any music lover...he left the audience trembling.’
