When you hear a Tristan Horncastle song, whether it’s the Friday night anthem “She Brings The Beer”, “Recreation Land” or the yearning “You Want”, you’re hearing his life.
With the Canadian radio success of his Top 5 selling debut album A Little Bit Of Alright having established Horncastle as an undeniable breakout artist, he’s eager to share more of his life on his sophomore and #1 iTunes selling album, Turnin’ Up A Sundown, released earlier this year on February 5th, 2016 through Royalty Records/Sony Music Canada.
Recorded at Nashville’s fabled Sound Stage Studio with producers Julian King (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill) and Bart Butler, Turnin’ Up A Sundown features eight solid cuts laid down with some of Music City’s top musicians, including the title track written by Jason Blaine.
Since releasing his first EP in 2011, the Fredericton, New Brunswick native has shared stages with the likes of Travis Tritt, Dean Brody, Joe Diffie and Leann Rimes. Horncastle’s hard work and dedication culminated in 2015 with a nomination in the Canadian Country Music Association Awards’ Rising Star category and Canadian Radio Music Award nomination for Best New Group of Solo Artist in the Country category and 3 Wins at Prix Music NB Awards for Album of the Year, Country Artist of the Year and Fans’ Choice.
This year Turnin’ Up A Sundown has already received recognition, recently earning Horncastle a 2016 CCMA nomination for Recording Package of the Year and 5 nominations at the Prix Music NB Awards for Country Artist of the Year, Album of the Year, SOCAN Song of the Year, Video of the Year and Producer of the Year.
Along with that recognition, Tristan Horncastle’s honest songwriting and down-to-earth personality has him poised to make an indelible mark on the country music scene.
