TRISTAN#jazz #electronic #pop

Tristan, is the alter ego of 23-year-old Belgian vocalist, composer and producer, Isolde Van den Bulcke. Considered one of Belgium's rising female artists, her new EP ‘delidomia’, released 8 th March via PIAS, fuses elegant vocal pop with ambient sounds and cosmic jazz and draws on influences such as Björk, Boards of Canada, Arca, Oneothrix Point Never and Wayne Shorter.

Her spellbinding debut EP ‘Illusje’, released in 2018 to critical acclaim, led to Belgium’s leading arts and culture publication Focus Knack to promptly ask, “Is this the Flemish Melanie de Biasio?”
Composing, producing and performing her own music, Isolde studied jazz vocals at the Conservatory of Ghent and Tilburg University and at the tender age of 17, she took her first steps towards a promising recording career when she formed SIAM and won the prestigious East Flemish music award, Oost. Best.

Her most recent live shows as Tristan have not gone unnoticed either with a sold-out show in her hometown Ghent and rave reviews for further shows at We Are Open (Trix) and Gent Jazz. She also caught the attention of Belgian-Egyptian musician Tamino who invited her to support him on tours throughout France, Belgium and the Netherlands. For Isolde, her new project is an extension of herself.
