Fronting The Linda Ronstadt Experience is the incomparable Tristan McIntosh. Tristan made a national name for herself when she auditioned for “American Idol” and performed Mickey Guyton’s “Why Baby Why,” bringing the judges to tears.
This memorable performance earned her a “Golden Ticket” to Hollywood to compete in the final season of the long-running television series. Tristan went on to become a fan favorite and finished in the Top Six, earning praise from country superstar and Idol Judge Keith Urban for “having a beautiful voice” and a “God-Given Gift”.
Tristan recently played at the world renowned Grand Ole Opry and Ryman Auditorium and performs in and around Nashville. Tristan is committed to constantly refining her skills in songwriting, guitar, piano, mandolin and trumpet. Tristan’s long-time and childhood friend, Bronson Bush, is also Tristan’s closest collaborator.
Bronson Bush was raised in the small town of Raceland, Kentucky which lies directly on the famous “Country Music Highway 23”, the area that produced artists such as Loretta Lynn, Tom T. Hall, Ricky Skaggs, Keith Whitley, Dwight Yoakum, Patti Loveless, and more. Taking the stage for the first time at the age of 4, Bronson has spent most of his 22 years performing in numerous genres including rock, country, classic rock, southern gospel, classical and barbershop music. In addition to playing the guitar and drums Bronson also studied the trumpet and is proficient as well in several other instruments.
Tristan and Bronson have now joined forces with a group of musicians who have spent most of their lives as working, pro players. Together, they will perform the most memorable songs of the Linda Ronstadt catalog with a band that has the chops to deliver the goods.
