Vista 22 Entertainment Adds Tristan Tritt To Artist Management Roster
Nashville-based Vista 22 Entertainment has signed 22-year-old Tristan Tritt to its artist management roster.
The oldest son of country music mainstay Travis Tritt, the Georgia native’s style incorporates heavier rock driven performances rather than his family’s outlaw country music roots.
Tritt started playing guitar at a young age and grew up on the road.
Dan Lavery and Patra Sinner of Vista 22 share: “He knows the direction he wants this to go, he has the talent to make it happen and he is ready to put in the hard work. We couldn’t be more excited to start this journey with Tristan.”
With the advisement of Vista 22 and long-time family friend Mike “Cheez” Brown, Tritt is currently in the studio writing and recording with Leroy Powell, a part of his father’s band. Fans can expect two new singles from Tritt in the first quarter of 2022 with his first full length EP to follow.
