First Class: “Here For You”, the Debut Album by Tristan Thompson (@TristanTMusic)




Here For You is the debut album (yes that’s the CD of it above) by 16 year old British Columbia native Tristan Thompson, whose first single “Tidal Wave” has scored #1 on my latest personal chart, and is a first class effort that distances itself from the run of the mill teen pop of the day.  All of the songs were written or co-written by Tylor Johnson, and they aren’t predetermined for a particular age group, allowing Tristan to provide more classic pop kind of interpretations.  And besides “Tidal Wave”, there are at least two other golden radio-worthy songs for your attention.  

“Mistaken” is the opening song and should be the successor to “Tidal Wave” with a zinger of a hook and a really good story to boot.  Like other songs on Here For You, “Lifetime Guarantee” slows things down a bit, again a strong song perfectly suited for Tristan’s voice.  “Leaving You Behind” is another uptempo number, while other songs like “Siren” help mix up the set with variety.  Here For You is a great showcase that lets Tristan’s vocal influences show their true colours, from Michael Jackson to Backstreet Boys to Jesse McCartney.  So – it’s about as far away from Bieber and Cyrus and Gomez and others that you can get!  Truly it’s an album that will appeal to all ages.

Tristan Thompson has a bright future ahead and I think Here For You, with top notch production by Adam Tune, will have long legs to take him into next year and beyond.

  1. […] and pick up any of his songs on iTunes for 99 cents each or buy the entire Here For You album (and you can read my blog post about it here).  “Mistaken” is a fine candidate for international radio play, and could also do well […]
