singing her own material. Melody and emotion are what drives her. They are the vocabulary she uses to introduce herself and create relationships that hopefully will last for years.

Tristan McIntosh's love of singing be- gan at the age of eight — it was almost as if she had no choice. Her father’s record collection set the tone and direction for how she saw life, love and loss. Marvin Gaye, Linda Ron- stadt, Al Green, and Norah Jones were her influences. Soul, Jazz, Country, Rock, and Pop all live in her heart. A finalist on "American Idol" at age 15 and the lead singer of The Linda Ron- stadt Experience, she has performed at many venues such as the Grand Ole Opry, Ryman Auditorium, and Daryl’s House in Pawling, NY. Four years after her debut on national television, Tristan has made her passion for music the most important part of her life and is currently pursuing a career Pleasant View by Tristan McIntosh, Larry McCoy & Brian White Guess I always figured that I’d figure it out Find a way to chase my dreams and a way out Of this town, Down this road go to a place, nobody knows People leave, and disappear But their memories linger here And they sing to me, like a robins call and they wave to me , in every leaf that falls Sometimes you find , it’s right in front of you a lovely life with a Pleasant View The paints a little faded on that city limit sign and a smile down at the diner ain’t too hard to find Just take a look around and you can see it everywhere The pride in the eyes of the ones still there And they shine on me, like the morning sun their love pours on me , like a river runs Sometimes you find , it’s right in front of you a lovely life with a Pleasant View

No matter where I go, I will always know where my heart is And they sing to me, like a robins call and they wave to me, in every leaf that falls And they shine on me, like the morning sun their love pours on me, like a river runs Sometimes you find, it’s right in front of you a lovely life with a Pleasant View
