Tristan Bushman has the rare ability to level any room with his stunning lyrics, he
delivers his prose with pure honesty, soaring melodies, and the richest tone. He has
been gaining a loyal fanbase while catching the attention of the entire industry. Ashton,
IL is where Tristan was born and raised surrounded by a musical family. His father,
Dave and his band “The Louie’s” would have Tristan join them onstage when he was
only 5 years old. This lead Tristan on his journey. In 2018 he packed up & relocated to
Nashville, TN. Now at 23 years old, he is a highly respected songwriter, true artist,
seasoned musician, and captivating performer.

Like the sprawling branches of a tenured Magnolia, Caleb Elliott’s sophomore album Weed, Wine &
Time is beauty and grit personified. There are veins of JJ Cale country, the soul-jazz of Michael
Kiwanuka, and the lyric fragility of Sufjan Stevens crisscrossing throughout WW&T. With these songs,
Elliott’s mastery of craft and nuance are on full display. Track to track, Elliott confidently paints with the
full gamut of emotion. From the Spring lightness of the title track to the wrecking-ball weight of FUBC
(written in honor of a lost loved one), Elliott grafts equal amounts of healing and hurt into the root
system of this record. Elliott’s uncanny ability to marry ear-worm hooks with complex & honest feeling
has made WW&T his most impressive album yet.
Weed, Wine & Time is an album replete with soothing catharsis and challenging introspection. It
does what all great albums do: It invites a listener to fall in love with both the music and the message.
Between it’s joy, heartache, expertise and timeless feel, Weed, Wine & Time is a veritable gumbo of
great music. It is a sonic dish carefully prepared with affection and served with the intent to move and
to please. WW&T begs you to taste and see. Which is fitting when you consider that Louisiana-born
Elliott believes “Nothing says I love you more than making someone a gumbo.” He has done just that,
and it is delicious.
