Feel So Pretty is music for the soul on a rainy day.
Heartfelt from beginning to end, this enchanting album is a true gem.
2016 - Sounds Australia 3WBC 94.1FM
"Trysette, has a sound that's all her own.
She has a great voice, she writes thoughtful lyrics and classically trained, plays a mean piano".
Go to tracks “Your Hands on me”, “Under My Skin” and a cover of Snow Patrols “Chasing Cars”

"Feel So Pretty is one of the most delightful albums that I've heard in a long while".... The Count
2016 - Wednesday Night Coffee Morning Radio Show 2mcr
“I appreciate anyone who listens to the album will head for 'Chasing Cars' (which I must admit is stunning) because of its familiarity, but if skipping the excellent original tracks is the listeners thing, then it is they who lose out.
As a package this is so beautifully performed and produced. The music is engrossing and the lyrics are personal and full of meaning.
2016 now has a benchmark for other releases from Australia and it's now set very high thanks to you Trysette”.

2015 - KTLA News 5 Entertainment Editor - Michael Joseph James
"At a time when we needed it most - mainly to contrast the auto-tuned, standardized offerings meant for those who text more than they talk - this album arrives like a dear friend, back from a long journey.
At once, the music of Trysette could be called 'intimate', with her crystal voice telling tales of the heart and life in a way that is both engaging and delicate. There are songs that don't even attempt to hide her Aussie accent, which plays to the sheer accessibility and openness of the music itself.
The instrumentation, by and large, is piano-centric - (she is clearly schooled) with backing from studio musicians using instruments familiar to the ear - and to this listener, comforting.
This album is tricky and unapologetically female. (take notes, gents) It has a way of getting 'under your skin' with melodies so tastefully crafted, you barely notice humming them to yourself while folding socks, working out, changing a tire, etc.
Before typing this review, I sat back with headphones to properly SEE the music, and found much to appreciate, dissect, and enjoy. I think you will, too"

NSW , AUSTRALIA 2014.
Dear Trysette, thanks for mailing your French Kiss CD some time ago. Like the others, I love it....
I really like your marriage of lyrics and tune. I think your skill is the ability via the lyrics to convey or tell a fuller story around often probably personal situations delivered via a clarity of voice coupled with just the right amount and style of instrumental backing - so thanks for that. John de Groot

I've never heard the name Trysette before, but my teenaged daughter, Nyssa, and I are not apt to forget it -- especially since we bought all her albums after attending her and Fiona Joy Hawkins' fabulous Two Grand concert last night. We were already familiar and taken with Fiona's musical compositions so knew we were in for a treat, but we hadn't anticipated Trysette's contribution to this very special evening (special because of the artists, and special due to the fact that money was being raised for the Mesa County Pro Bono Project). Trysette's unique and raspy voice, heartfelt and personal lyrics, fun musical compositions, friendly banter, and undeniable connection with the audience completely drew us in. She is different from and yet the perfect compliment to Fiona's more classic style of a soft, airy voice and extraordinarily smooth and beautiful piano-playing. As I sat there captivated by them, I actually thought, "I feel bad for the locals who could have been here tonight experiencing this, but aren't." One thing is certain -- whenever Trysette and Fiona bless Colorado with a visit, Nyssa and I will be there to be inspired by them! At this very moment, I can hear "Sweep Me Off My Feet" as it blasts from my daughter's IPOD speakers about 24 hours after last night's show! Bravo, Trysette and Fiona! Bravo for having the insight to recognize what a smashing combo the two of you would be! Tour on! . Paula Moore

BRISBANE JAZZ CLUB - AUSTRALIA, 2011.
"I thought you were brilliant the other night and I thoroughly enjoyed your show, so consequently been telling everyone if they get the chance to go and see you. Just wanted to say also the CDs (one of each) are fantastic and almost worn out already. I wish you every bit of success as your voice and piano playing is sensational". Liz
BRISBANE - AUSTRALIA 2011
"The 3 CDs all draw different feelings. Here On In is gently soothing, French Kiss I found more stirring (in a good way, sort of uplifting), while Le Cafe is somewhere in the middle but somehow more touching?". Jim Craigen

I picked this album up down the NSW South Coast at Moruya and am I really glad I did. This is an older album recorded in 1999, but well worth hunting down on Chaos or at Impact or Landspeed. Trysette's debut solo album received little fanfare on release, but I decided to check it out on a whim and I certainly wasn't disappointed. In fact I was delighted. This is a really outstanding debut. Trysette writes her own material and infuses a good blend of rock, acoustic and pop melodies as demonstrated in the stand out track 'When You're Near'. There's a freshness about her music and she sings her songs from the heart without the endless intrusion of stuffy production or inappropriate beats. Check it out!

It seems that someone who looks over me has heard my prayers. I didn't ask for a lot just for something substantially worthwhile to represent the Australian female artists as leaders in the world music industry circles. It seems every other country has an abundance of outstanding female talent. Australians are lacking something new and fresh. Until now.
Sit back and take notes. Got your pen ready? Good, because you are about to learn that Trysette is paving the way for every female inspired songwriter and performer. Her music can only be described as breathtaking. Growing up in Grafton (beautiful place too), Trysette was not far from following her dreams by attending Lismore University and fine tuning her musical talents which in no time were recognized by prominent industry type folk.
The rest is history and Trysette has blended a raw folk style of musical creation with her angelic, emotion stirring vocals to bring to us Australia's finest female artist release for the year 2000. No-one compares and no-one will ever be able to mimic the fine quality of Trysette. In a word - perfect! Melanie Vilnus for kazazz.com
