Debut CD set for 1st quarter 2017 release through Berry's AMG/Universal deal.
(1888PressRelease) December 23, 2016 - "I knew from Trystan's first performance and meeting I'd done the right thing," Berry, in an exclusive statement, tells Billboard Magazine. "The chemistry between Trystan and AMG is fantastic, and he is an incredibly gifted vocalist & writer."
Trystan Laurent has developed a loyal fan base in Toronto and has now signed an international recording & management deal with Berry's AMG, out through Universal Music Group Distribution.
"The fact that I'm being given the opportunity to make my music, it feels like a dream I never want to wake up from. It's an amazing opportunity," says Laurent, who has been developing a steady fanbase across the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) before seeking out Berry's team for international assistance.
The debut album will be executive produced by Berry (whose credits include Seven Strait, David Bowie, Burton Cummings and Duran Duran), but Laurent seems most excited to be putting the finishing touches on the upcoming release in the recording studio with his long time collaborator, fellow Torontonian, SPADE after taking the summer to write.
"I am going to have a blast working with Duane Farley and the AMG staff developing into a world class act," Laurent says. "I promise we are going to bring it."
