Tristen Bird

Tristen Bird

Tristen Bird deals in subtle, intimate, mood-driven storytelling. Music with a poignant quality. Born of a country-folk musician father, he turned to his craft early, developing a style that utilises textured finger style guitar and stringed sound scapes.

The Melbourne based singer songwriter is living every aspiring artists dream. Armed with his debut album produced by ARIA award winner Shane O‟Mara, Tristen is excited at his future prospects as he prepares to embark on criss-crossing the country to promote his debut long player “Horse to Water”. The record was completed in 2011 with producer Shane O‟Mara at the wheel in Melbourne‟s Yikesville studios. O‟Mara has previously produced records for The Audrey‟s, David Ross McDonald (The Waifs) and for Tim Rogers, all of whom are inspiration for Tristen.

“The opportunity to work with Shane was amazing” Tristen said. “The whole time I was in his studio I couldn‟t wipe the smile off my face. Every time I turned around I just thought of the amazing music that had been conceived in that studio with Shane at the helm. Yikesville was such a great and very important experience for me.” The record also features a haunting duet with Triple J unearthed winner Abbie Cardwell and the Dobro talents of brother Jeb throughout.
