“Singer Gets Sober, Moves To Mexico, Releases New Record”
Alt-country-indie-folk-pop singer James Tristan Redding has a new album on the market, but this time he’s sober and singing by himself.
James Tristan Redding is a singer-songwriter in the tradition of timeless American songs, putting poignant and sometimes whimsical lyrics to accessible and memorable melodies. For more than a decade, James Tristan Redding traveled North America with his own band, an independent alt-country group named Union Pulse. The group released five studio albums, two live E.P.s (both since out of print) and a cumulative “Best Of” collection.
Redding is now working with a large number of eclectic acts in many capacities, filling every role from booking agent to session drummer, replacement bass player to open mic host, keyboardist, backup singer, producer, guitar instructor, and recording engineer. After a decade of touring with Union Pulse, a genre-bending indie band from Wisconsin, then spending a winter in Mexico to put down the bottle and write a new kind of music, Redding has relocated to New York City and is launching his debut solo album “Walking Into Brooklyn” independently from a 7-foot by 9-foot apartment.
An official CD Release concert will be held Tuesday, November 12, at the Bitter End (147 Bleecker). Admission will be free. This concert also kicks off the INTERNATIONAL album release 25-city tour www.facebook.com/jamestristanredding // www.reverbnation.com/jamestristanredding
