Pleasant View's own, Tristan McIntosh, recently made her debut as an artist with the release of a new single.
The 20-year-old vocalist released I Don’t Wanna Love You, co-written with award-winning producer Jamie Houston, on October 9.
The powerful track tells the tale of a difficult relationship and the struggles that ensue when trying to break free.
"I don’t wanna feel, I don’t wanna fall, I don’t wanna love you. I don’t wanna break every time you call." --- Lyrics from I Don't Wanna Love You.
I Don't Wanna Love You is just one of many McIntosh is releasing to establish her sound and presence in the music industry.
Her upcoming EP will feature eight tracks.
Uniquely blending pop, soul, and jazz, McIntosh's latest collection of tunes skillfully and artistically expresses emotions and experiences like self-love, growth, pain, and hope.
"Her powerful voice shines with an intricacy that is as unmistakable as it is entrancing," says a representative from Holiday Road Entertainment. "Raw and deeply rooted, soulful and vulnerable, Tristan unapologetically wears her heart on her sleeve with impassioned lyrics, haunting melodies, and magnetic performances."
In 2016, McIntosh participated in season 15 of the hit show American Idol, finishing in sixth place.
Most recently, McIntosh's work as lead singer in the Linda Ronstadt Experience has not only pushed her vocal boundaries, but also given her a strong sense of direction when it comes to her sound and the path she wants to follow as she ventures deeper into her musical career.
“This project has been a long time coming, and I am so excited that I’m finally able to share it with the world," McIntosh told The Post. "The people of Pleasant View have been so supportive of my journey as an artist. I’m so thankful for the community that I grew up in.”
