After two years of touring, Tristan was feeling burnt out and decided to take some time off before recording her third
album. She traveled to Bali, Australia and Europe, and then returned home to discover that she needed to have surgery to remove
the polyps in her vocals chords. In spite of the setback, her experiences abroad helped Tristan find the inspiration she needed
to begin singing again. In her latest album she has document all her ups and downs, revealing a raw emotional depth that she
had never tapped into before. Of her new album, Cedar and Gold, Tristan explains, "I started writing songs from a place
