Product Description

Product Description

"Tristan Mackay was born in Tiverton, Devon and was educated in Wellington, Somerset. He first picked up a guitar at the age of 14 after hearing the Eric Clapton `Unplugged' album. This started his life long love for blues guitar music and the storytelling songs of Dylan, Young and Springsteen.

In 2001 he moved to Yorkshire to study at Leeds University. During his student days he would busk to pay the bills and it was to this pursuit he returned after university to promote his music. Tristan built up quite a fan base in Leeds through his busking, appearing several times on local news programmes, printed press and radio, where he was hailed as `the next big thing out of Yorkshire.'

He self recorded and released his first two E.P's `Tales From A Bedroom Orchestra' and `Live From The Lounge'. Although these were only produced and sold from his bedroom `studio', his track `The Wine and Me' was featured in the Channel 4 show `Skins', as well as being a recommended track on Indiestore.

In 2010, 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. Later that year they embarked on a collaboration to produce Tristan's debut album `Out Along the Wire'. With a team of outstanding musicians, including Pete Van Hooke (Mike and the Mechanics, Van Morrision) and friend John Garden (Scissor Sisters) as well as a cameo organ performance from Paul Carrack, the album of all original tracks is about to take the world by storm..."

Review

The record oozes beauty…definitely an album for the summer, it credits Tristan endlessly as a singer-songwriter who has surely paved his way to lifelong success. --Maverick Magazine

A sincere & finely crafted album that will stand up to relaxed after hours listening perfectly - **** -- --Guitarist

Out Along The Wire is perhaps the best light blues/singer/songwriter album I have heard in recent years. Quite why Mumford & Sons and Ed Sheeran are household names and Tristan is not is a crime (that is not knocking those acts but Tristan is as good as them or better). The songs are all gems, relaxed, beautifully written and performed to the highest standards...Mainly acoustic, when the electric guitar is utilised it is heartfelt with its chimes and precision, the playing is second to none, bringing to mind in places Mark Knopfler, Chris Rea and Eric Clapton...A fantastic cross over album that should be there for any rockers, blues fans or lovers of decent singer /songwriters lighter moments.
Darken the room, light a candle, put on Out Along The Wire and pour a large red wine. THAT S AN ORDER! --ireviewrock.com

I have been waiting for this debut album for a long time, ever since I saw Tristan busking on the streets of Leeds.
His voice and guitar playing is unlike any other and is perfect easy-going music.
Personal favourites have to be 'Last Love', 'Million Little Things', 'Don't Let Me In'.....I could go on.
I can't stop listening to it!

Buy this album and you won't be disappointed, it's simply brilliant :)

A long, long awaited debut mainstream album finally landed on my doormat over the weekend and I have to say WOW!

From humble beginnings, when I first heard him busking on the streets of Leeds, and already attracting large audiences with his playing, vocals and amazing personality, Tristan Mackay delivers top quality professional performances with his debut Mainstream album.

Pretty much had it on non-stop play since it arrived (I'm even listening to it as I type this!), a welcome refreshing addition, and revival of a long lost art with simple, silky vocals with stunning backing music without the all too common run-of-the-mill, mass produced cheese that the major labels seem to think passes as music these days.

Enjoy!

This long-awaited album certainly does not disappoint, although I can't profess to have waited as long as some fans! For me, I can see this being the only album I'll be listening to over and over for quite some time. Perfect for balmy evenings (if we get any!), it will easily be the ideal Summer soundtrack and is up there with the best. Think Ray LaMontagne, Ryan Adams, Jack Johnson and a splash of Chris Rea - but better!

Buy it!

That is all!

Out Along the Wire is an amazing album, I have been excitedly waiting for this for a long while since watching Tristan busking on the streets of Leeds (happy memories) - and listening to the 6 track CD I had from his gigs in Leeds a few years ago over and over again.

It is relaxing, chilled out and a CD you just have to listen to. I haven't bought an album for years, I tend to listen to tracks I have downloaded and to spotify but I just had to buy this one to listen to it everywhere I go. He is a talented singer / songwriter / performer and this CD is a must buy. Buy it and enjoy!

Tristan's crisp and smooth voice marries beautifully with his old skool guitar skills. Fantastic rhythm and tunes throughout with enough variation in style and pace between the tracks make this an album you can leave on repeat all summer long.

I've never written a review before, but was moved to write one after listening to this album, truly wonderful songs, great voice and superb guitar playing, i probably listen to twenty or more new albums every week, but this one has blown me away, if you like John Mayer, Eric Bibb, Eric Clapton, Ray lamontagne, give this guy a listen, he's like the lot rolled into one and is going to be huge very very soon, AMAZING!!

Like a lot of the reviews here I've been waiting for this album for a while since seeing Tristan busking in Leeds (I need to say we got him to play our wedding so I can't be seen as an impartial reviewer!). There are (to my simple ear) hints of Clapton throughout although it's very definitely Tristan's music and Last Love is utterly wonderful. Suffice to say this is a brilliant album and well worth anyone buying.

It seems that many of the reviewers on here have first been drawn to Tristan's music by seeing him as support for more established stars and I'm no exception. I saw him 2 years ago when he was supporting Robben Ford at a lovely little theatre off Leicester Square in London. I'd just had a particularly bad day at work, nearly didn't go and turned up after he'd started but I was immediately captivated, not only by his really superb guitar playing, but also by the way he engaged with his audience. I'd imagine that's a pretty difficult thing to do when most of the audience has come to see someone else and I'll confess, I never used to bother with support acts myself until I saw him (I do now!).
About halfway through his set, he mentioned that he was funding his next album through Kickstarter because he hadn't got a record deal. By this time, I was totally sold and I remember thinking 'why has someone this good not got a record deal'?
So I bought this album during the break and ended up sponsoring his next album on Kickstarter as well.
Out Along The Wire certainly didn't disappoint. There are some really beautiful songs on here and none of them can in any way be described as fillers. Lyrically and musically, he has got it all and there are real Clapton-esque guitar breaks thrown in as well.
As a backer of the next album (Wire and Wood - out this month, March 2015) I got a sneak preview of the demos and it sounds just as amazing as this one. I've now seen him a number of times, usually supporting someone else, sadly, and if anything, he just gets better and better.
Buy this album if you like beautiful blues based rock - I guarantee you won't be disappointed.
If any artist deserves to succeed, it's this man!
