Tristen Gaspadarek has been writing and performing her heartfelt country-tinged songs for nearly half of her twenty-six years, and her intrinsic wisdom-beyond-years is evident in the strength of her writing. Tristen and The Ringers performed a tight forty-five minute set at Knitting Factory last night that featured much of the material from her new album Charlatans At The Garden Gate released last week on American Myth Records. It is an album that chronicles the power and destructive nature of love seen through the weary eyes of experienced world traveler. The most stark recitation of the struggle is featured in the relationship-with-an-addict number “Baby Drugs”, which can be streamed below. Tristen is one of those seriously talented artists who we expect big things from in the near future, and Charlatans is the likely conduit to that success. Tristen’s current tour wraps up with three more dates this week, before she heads to SXSW, and then continues throughout the country during April and May.

I recorded this set with the four microphone rig from our standard location in this venue and the sound quality is excellent. Enjoy!

    I first heard of Tristen just a few weeks ago – she was profiled on NPR and received a favorable rating on Charlatans from correspondent Tom Moon. I immediately purchased the album (iTunes – who buys hardcopies anymore?) and have been thrilled to hear some great songwriting and performances on these recordings. I wish her and her bandmates all the best and will be seeing their show on April 8th at the Studio at Webster Hall.
