"My Dad bought me my Casino, Tristen told Epiphone.com. "He saw me playing at the 5 Spot borrowing someone’s guitar. And the next day my Dad took me to Gruhn’s. It’s a 1966.  She’s Miss America. She’s the best—she stays in tune.  She sounds great. 

From the time I was 14, my Dad and I would make records together. I made a record when I was 20. I’ve had enough experience doing it for fun with my family. I learned ProTools when I came to town. I grew up at in the age when recording equipment became accessible to everybody. The fact that I’m from that generation of musicians who had access to that is very important. I didn’t want to pay somebody to record all the songs I was writing.  I wanted to get them done and keep going!"
