About James Tristan Redding
James Tristan Redding is a singer-songwriter in the tradition of American narrative songs, putting poignant and sometimes whimsical lyrics to accessible and memorable melodies. Redding was raised in the mid-west by British parents, completed his undergraduate degree at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, and proceeded to write, record, and tour as vocalist and guitarist for the indie alt.-country group Union Pulse (2002-2012). Second only to their nationally recognized, high energy live shows, the young group was most notorious for a constantly changing line up of musicians and over their decade long career, over 70 musicians supported James in his national touring efforts under the name Union Pulse. The band performed more than 700 concerts throughout the continental United States, released five studio albums, and one live E.P. Their seventh and final release was a "Best Of" collection.
Now in his 30's, James has added the role of producer to the list of jobs he does well. With a home studio and over ten years of experience in the music industry, whenever he's not on the road, Redding is rapidly building a big resume including production for artists like Taylor Whitaker, Mark Adams, and Texas Dave, session work on tracks by Martin Jack Rosenblum, Brandon Payton-Carrillo and Marty Morgan, and a large catalog of original material written and recorded on his own.
