Tristan Mackay


Hire a talented male Blues singer

Originally from Devon, Tristan is a talented, solo blues singer-songwriter, available to hire as live entertainment for corporate functions, parties or weddings.

Having self recorded and released his first two E.P’s ‘Tales from a Bedroom Orchestra’ and ‘Live from the Lounge,’ Tristan had one of the tracks, ‘The Wine and Me’ featured in the Channel 4 show ‘Skins.’ Another of the songs was featured by Aled Jones on ‘Good Morning Sunday’ and was used by World Duty Free as their summer campaign song in all their stores, through 2011.

While busking full time, Tristan was discovered on MySpace by Grammy award winning producer Martin Levan (John Martyn, Andrew Lloyd Webber) who invited him to his studio to lay down demos. They embarked on a collaboration to produce Tristan’s debut album, ‘Out Along the Wire’ and with a team of outstanding musicians, including Pete Van Hooke (Mike and the Mechanics, Van Morrison) and friend John Garden (Scissor Sisters), as well as a cameo organ performance from Paul Carrack.

The album went straight to number one on the iTunes Blues Chart in the UK and Australia and received a swathe of 4 and 5 star reviews. It was also record of the week on several UK radio stations including BBC Somerset and BBC Devon. His follow up album, ‘Wire & Wood’ was released in 2015 and received critical praise from the music press, including a feature in Blues Magazine. It also topped the iTunes Blues Chart after a live session with Fern Britten on BBC Radio 2.

Tristan is an excellent performer with a fantastic reputation and can deliver character and charm to your special occasion.
