Tristan, a Musician

Music is a life force that not only humans produce. Nature has many ways to gentle a stressed out spirit, to give peace where no peace can be found. Those among us who can hear music in their minds and hearts and put it on paper, give voice to it, play an instrument that allows that one to share it with the rest of us I find reassuring and uplifting. These artists remind me of all the beauty and good in human kind. It is also an amazing ability to be able to produce, literally out of the air, a sound no one else has ever heard before. To put a string of words together which haven’t been strung quite that way before. As unique as a pearl necklace, sometimes at first glance we don’t notice the differences, only the similarities, but then the sound changes, creating a new image in our minds and we realize this isn’t a song we’ve heard before.
Here is a musician trying to live his dream: to make music and live by it. He has a gift with words, phrases, meanings and how they are put together. He is a poet with his poems strung on musical cords. There is a song “I Hope You Dance” sung by Lee Ann Womack that came out when my children were young. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RV-Z1YwaOiw  I often listened to it and thought of my little ones and wished those same things for them, just as she did when singing it for her daughter. Tristan, this musician I am writing about here, is singing, playing and “dancing” with his music, the rhythm of his life, taking the risks and putting his love on the line. He is constantly finding an open door when one closes behind him. He keeps on going and I hope, later in life, he won’t have regrets because whether he wins or loses, he’s done what he set out to do. Try.
Here is a video of him and a friend singing a song he wrote. Also so a link to hear a bit more of his style. If you like it let him know on YouTube and FaceBook. https://www.facebook.com/tristanmusiconline. Pass it on and let your friends in on it too. If you don’t like it, well that’s okay too, because that is what creating is all about. You can never please everyone all the time. But who’s trying to do that anyway? Let the music play…
