Music Review: Prettyman spins gold from heartache

Tristan Prettyman, "Cedar + Gold" (EMI/Capitol)

It's not unusual for an artist to find inspiration in heartache. Some of the greatest songs are written from pain. What Tristan Prettyman accomplishes on "Cedar + Gold," however, is unusual because she sings from her broken heart with a voice that is absent of anger. Instead, there is both fragility and strength, retrospection and introspection, and through it all there is love.
