''The best of the seventies brought to 2015'' is what TOTO guitarist and singer
Steve Lukather came up with when he heard the music of TRISTAN!

“The best of the seventies brought to 2015”

With the successful release of our debut album "Full Power" it's been like a chain reaction of positive response, reviews and airplay. Tristan hit nr.1 on  the UK soulcharts and got to do a whole bunch of great live performances as headlining act as well as being the support band for Incognito. "Full Power" is also be available as special edition in Japan.
''The best of the seventies brought to 2015'' is what TOTO guitarist and singer Steve Lukather came up with when he heard the music of TRISTAN! 
A new chapter is about to unfold for us: The follow up album entitled '2nd Phase" is already finished and available worldwide. A third album 'LIFESTYLE" is already in an advanced stage. In January of 2016 we will put out the first singles in the UK. The Netherlands and Japan are scheduled for early April and June .
Tristan's music can best be described as feel good vintage Acid Jazz music with the energy, vibe and sound of 2014 by some of today’s best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe. Funky rhythm- guitars, Hammonds, Fender Rhodes and synths, and a rhythm section that has been playing together for decades. All this gives singer Evelyn Kallansee the solid ground to make her beautiful vocal sound shine. It will bring you back to that great sound of the seventies. Well produced recordings and live performances often joined by a hornsection, a string section and a host of backing vocalists. While the music may hold clear echo's from bands like Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy and classic acid jazz acts like Incognito and Brand New Heavies, what makes this band really stand out is the high energy of the grooves and the quality of the writing and arranging. Tristan - Full Power was a startling fresh debut album from a band consisting of real musicians. If you like plastic-made-up music by artists that have been processed and autotuned to death then this album may not be your cup of tea. If you on the other hand like well written live played and intelligently arranged Acid Jazz performed by great musicians this might just be the album you are looking for! "2nd Phase" will very much be in the same league of quality and perfection without holding back on budgets nor artistry!
