Busker Tristan Mackay self-recorded and released his first
two E.P’s –  “Tales from a Bedroom Orchestra” and “Live from the
Lounge”. Although these were produced and sold from his
bedroom studio, his track “The Wine and Me” was featured in
the Channel 4 show “Skins” and “Be all that You can Be” was
featured by Aled Jones on “Good Morning Sunday”.

While busking full time in London in 2010, Tristan was
discovered by Grammy award-winning producer Martin Levan
(John Martyn, Andrew Lloyd Webber) who invited him to his
studio to lay down demos.

Tristan’s debut album “Out Along The Wire” was released this
February to critical acclaim collecting 4 / 5 star reviews
across the board. The album shot to number one in the iTunes
Blues charts in the UK and Australia above revered acts such
as BB King, Eric Clapton and Joe Bonamassa.

“Forget tube busking, I’m chart busking!” – The Sun

Mayer. Out Along The Wire restores faith in popular music as
an expression of the soul”- Leeds Music Scene
