Often referred to as an “old soul” by fans and friends alike, twenty five year old New Hampshire based singer/songwriter Tristan Omand has stories beyond his years. They all unfold in the songs, though, and are accented by an unchained, yet clear and galloping style of folk flat-picking that he has honed over the last fourteen years. The lyrics are the main course of each tune, painting pictures with words, maybe even spinning a good yarn or two of fiction. But the easiest thing to detect about his writing, is a sense of honesty and wounded perseverance. Omand independently recorded, and released "Tolled Stories" in 2011, which has quickly become a favorite amongst music fans in the New England area. Now with two tours of the east coast from New Hampshire to New Orleans under his belt, the hunger and drive to play and write is still there, if not stronger than before. Tristan has had the pleasure of opening for acts ranging from Livingston Taylor, to Side One Dummy Records artist Audra Mae, and nationals Larry & His Flask, among many others all over the east coast. New album due out December 4th on Raised In A Barn Recordings.
