Tristan Prettyman is one of those special singer-songwriters who knows exactly just how to capture an emotion and reel you in!
Yesterday, we showed you her playful acoustic of My Oh My and now we get a little bit deeper with the heartfelt, I Was Gonna Marry You!
Check out the EXCLUSIVE performance of the track (above)!!
We love the honesty in both the words and her voice!
It seems the San Diego songbird drew a lot of inspiration for her music from her previous engagement to fellow singer-songwriter, Jason Mraz.
All that she’s gone through has definitely provided the material for a solid album, which can be heard in her latest, Cedar + Gold, released just yesterday!

We are definitely suckers for AH-Mazing singer-songwriters!
Recently, we got a visit from Tristan Prettyman — a San Diego-based artist signed to Capitol Records — who gave us a taste of her acoustic soul!
Check out an EXCLUSIVE performance of her song, My Oh My (above)!!
We LOVE how playful and infectious the track is, but how at the same time, you can still feel the emotion in her vocals!
My Oh My is included on Tristan’s new album, Cedar + Gold, which was just released TODAY!

In like, the most eloquent way possible too.
Six months after they announced they were going to get married, Jason Mraz and Tristan Prettyman have called off their engagement. The couple seemed to have it all figured out back when Jason proposed on Christmas eve, but he confesses that their love has been sacrificed for his art. He explains:
"My greatest mistake right now is, I've been clinging to my art. In that, I have victory for my art and a great loss for my heart. At the moment, my beautiful fiancée is no longer my beautiful fiancée. Two halves don't make a whole. Two wholes make a whole. In my relationship, I was giving myself away to make the relationship better, but in actuality, wasn't doing better by doing that. I became less of a man."
Wow. We're not really sure what that means exactly, but it sounds bittersweet none-the-less.
We're sorry to hear that things didn't work out for you two, but hopefully you guys can still be friends or something.
Also, when we read that part about the halves not making a whole, for some reason we started singing Life is Wonderful in our head. Not really apropos, but it came up!
