Feet Back On the Ground from LIFESTYLE

Tristan's music can best be described as feel good vintage Acid Jazz music with the energy, vibe and sound of 2017 by some of today’s best contemporary pop/jazz musicians from Europe. Funky rhythm-guitars, Hammond, 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 vocals shine. It will bring you back to that great warm sound of the seventies, with a fresh breeze of influences from the present. Well-produced recordings and live performances often joined by a horn-section, a string section and a host of backing vocalists.

While the music may hold clear echo's from bands like Toto, Tower of Power, Snarky Puppy and classic acid jazz acts like Incognito and Brand New Heavies; what makes this band particularly stand out is the high energy levels within the grooves and the quality of the writing and arranging. Tristan's - “Full Power” was hailed as fresh debut, and their highly acclaimed follow-up “ 2nd Phase” proved that this is a band with something to say - after all both albums went straight to #1 in the UK Soul-charts. "Lifestyle" featuring Heston consolidated Tristan's reputation for the solid grooves and tight, punchy arrangements that have become their trademark. The albums were extremely well-received by the press resulting in numerous festival invites outside their home country and an ever increasing international fan base.
