Twentythree (Dig)

Prettyman got her start playing coffee shops (notably Java Joe’s, which spawned local Top 40 stars Jason Mraz and Jewel). This pressing of her debut album features 13 tracks including the single ‘Love Love Love’. EMI. 2005.A couple years ago, San Diego singer-songwriter Tristin Prettyman was a competitive surfer. These days, she seems to prefer staying out of the water but still under the stars. Her debut album seems custom made for sunset-hour clambakes and bonfires on the beach, a swell of acoustic guitars, quiet melodies and lapping waves that serenely come together on unadorned folk-pop songs like “The Story” and “Song For The Rich.” G. Love plays harmonica on a pair of tracks, while beau Jason Mraz provides vocals for the sweet and tender “Shy That Way.” But it’s Prettyman’s hazily magnificent voice–limited in range but dreamy in scope–that really keeps this album afloat. –Aidin Vaziri
