Ché Tryst

BandCountrySinger/Songwriter

SUCCESS is not something you can buy, it is something that is earned through blood, sweat & tears. I have HUGE hopes & dreams & will do anything i can to ACHIEVE them!!

Biography

I write my songs straight from the heart, telling stories we've all lived and expressing the emotions we've all felt.

My songs swing kinda country with pop and folk influence. (More recently considered "acoustic pop rock with country influence" but thats still pretty broad..) From either raw acoustic to heavily produced tunes, you will one way or another experience what a melodic hook really is when the lyrics of my songs play through your head ALL day long!!

What a Mess!! and Without Notice.. were entered into Starburst 2005 Soundcheck competition and were both ranked in the top 20 out of 438 other talented entries!!

ABOUT ME:

I'm a 22yr old university graduate & now flight attendant, who stumbled across the fact that i had an interest in music, (especially songwriting) after i spent 11 years pursuing a career as a Japanese interpreter. Not even a day after i finished my degree, my mind was itching to explore something new. I started to write dozens of lyrics and became totallly involved in music anyway i could. I made a random decision one morning to buy a guitar, and thats what i did. At the time i had no idea how to play it but looking back on it now, it was the best decision i've ever made. I now also have a hot pink electric guitar (love it!!) and amp. Who would have thought i had it in me....

My guitar gives me another way of expressing my lyrics and melody and inspires me when i need it most. I'm the first to admit that i'm not the BEST guitar player in the world, but I wouldn't trade it for anything. Playing and writing music for me is my way of escaping from the world and being someone else. Actors play different people in movies etc, and when i write and sing i too try to express the lyrics and emotions of each song as if they were the same emotions that i was feeling.

Lets face it, there are only so many times one person can be heartbroken... I like to write songs that other people can relate to, and not just my own personal experiences.

A few of my songs have been entered into online competitions, but besides that i still haven't had a major break into the industry. I have a few artists in mind to sing some of my songs, and would of course love a publishing deal, but at the moment i'm happy just being in the recording studio and making them all come to life. To touch just one person with my songs is a good enough reason for me to keep doing whatever it is i'm doing.

WHY EVER STOP DOING SOMETHING THAT MAKES YOU HAPPY??

IF you have a few falls, brush yourself off and try again. The only person that holds you back is yourself. I'm going to give it my everything and thats the best i can do, if it never works out then i haven't really lost anything, but if i never try then i'll always be wondering!

A Big thanx to :-

Bignote Productions - Jennifer & Paul Harris for being a great team to work with on recording my songs. They are the most talented team i know and go out of there way to help me however they can! Did i mention how GOOD they are!! My songs wouldn't be what they are without their creative input and PAUL'S amazing guitar playing and string lines and JEN'S super BV ideas!!

My vocal coach, the lovely Dinah Williams for always knowing exactly what i want and giving me the inspiration to achieve whatever it is i hope for the music industry. She has been with me all the way and has helped to guide me musically to where i am today!!

My extremely patient Guitar teacher, Ram Sefar for letting me go off on a tangent every week and ask a million annoying questions that have NOTHING to do with what he is trying to teach me. And i must say a big THANX 4 not taking out my little finger picking moments that i've become extremely attached to!! :)

My piano teacher Teruko Iwasaki, who is the sweetest teacher ever. She never complains when my brain has a breakdown and can no longer comprehend a single note she is trying to explain. Instead she lets me potter along until i finally grasp what should have been the easiest thing to understand! HEY i'm Blonde!! What more can i say ;)

MOST OF ALL my family! My MUM and SISTER who have the most belief in me out of any one in the whole world! Two people who have been with me through everything and will stand by my side right til the end. If i didn't have them, i wouldn't be me!

Gotta love the girls, you all know who you are!! Natalie especially i know you'd be there for me in an instant and i love you for it!! Trudy, Amy, Ella, Naomi, Sophie, Alesha, Alicia and all the rest, i really am so glad that i met you girls, i've had some great times with you all and can't wait to share more with you in the future!! xo

And my previous darling work collegues who put up with me 9hrs a day almost 5 days a week. You guys know me more than anyone else!! thanx for always listening and picking me up when things got me down!!

Hugs and kisses to you ALL xoxox

Lyrics

How Could U NOT!!

Written By: Ché Tryst Heaslip

HOW COULD U NOT!!

VERSE 1:

Thought it was love
You’d do anything for me
Only when it suits you
The truth now I see

You let me down
When I thought you cared
Where were you at when
You weren’t there
You didn’t care about me

CHORUS

How could you not be there
When I needed you
For you I’d be there
Surely you knew
How could you not ever
Even show you care
I spent my nights without you
Could you not care about me
How could you not care about me
How could you not care about me
Could you not care about me

VERSE 2:

No longer the person that
I thought you were
I lie awake at night
Feeling so hurt

You let me down when i
Needed you so
You never called and
You never showed
I’ll never know
What went wrong

CHORUS

How could you not be there
When I needed you
For you I’d be there
Surely you knew
How could you not ever
Even show you care
Spent my nights without you
Could you not care about me
How could you not care about me
How could you not care ABOUT

BRIDGE

I was waiting
Watched you turn walk away
Really hurt me
Nothing more I can say
I’m moving on its
Time to start again
Ooh yeah
Yeeah
Yeah yeah yeah eh

CHORUS

REPRISE

Thought it was love
And you cared for me
I was so wrong
Now I see

Without Notice...

Written By: Ché Tryst Heaslip

Without Notice ..

VERSE 1:

I woke up one morning
Not expecting to find
A note in your writing
Saying you needed time

My heart is broken
And I can't believe
I woke up that morning
Without you next to me

PRE CHORUS :

Now I’m left to figure
A puzzle yet to piece
A mystery left behind
You walked out in my sleep

CHORUS:

Without any notice, turned your back said no more
Without any notice, you walked out the door
Without any notice things they have changed
Only memories remain

VERSE 2:

Never even got the chance
To give you reasons to stay
You left my life
I didn’t get to have a say

Tell me what it was I did
How come I wasn’t told
Cos you never explained
Thought together we’d grow old

PRE CHORUS

CHORUS

BRIDGE:
Cos everyday your note it haunts me, it affects the way I think
No clue what actually happened, to you and me…

Oh o oh oo oh
Now where do I go?

CHORUS

Written By Ché Tryst Heaslip

Regret The Day..

Written By: Ché Tryst Heaslip

INTRO:

Oh oh oh
Aah aah I
Ooh oh oh
Aah aaah i

Oh I’m feeling so upset
Thoughts of sorry and pity alone
All cos I regret the day
Still wishing you’d come home

VERSE 1:

Cos I’m flickin’ though my photographs
Memories pass me by
Lookin' out my window
And wondering why I
Never said I loved you
Shoulda said I needed you
Then I let you leave me life
Before you knew YEAH

CHORUS:

Babe I regret the day
Regret the day so much
Regret the things I didn’t say
Regret the goodbye touch
Regret that day that dreaded day
Regret the day so much
Regret that day you went away
The day you didn’t stay
I regret the day
Regret the day so much
Regret the things I didn’t say
Regret the goodbye touch

VERSE 2:

Happy couples so in love
All around me day and night
I only have to think of you
I start to cry
Many things I didn’t say
And all the things I could have done
Now I finally realised
You were the one

CHORUS

BRIDGE:

What I meant to say was
What I tried to say was
Found the words in the tears on my pillow
I meant to say I loved you

Oh oh oh I loved you
Oh ooh ooh oh oh I loved you

It’s too late to say now
I never told you
I loved you

CHORUS:

I regret the day
Regret the day so much
Regret the things I didn’t say
Regret the goodbye touch
Regret that day that dreaded day
Regret the day so much
Regret that day you went away
The day you didn’t stay

REPRISE:

Flickin' through my photographs
Memories pass me by
Lookin' out my window and
Wondering why.....

Discography

WHAT A MESS!!! (2004)
WITHOUT NOTICE... (2005
HOW COULD U NOT!! (2005)
REGRET THE DAY... (2005)
OFF THE FLOOR!! (2006)
LITTLE MISS PERFECT... (2006) currently recording

The above songs will all be included in my upcoming album which is still a work in progress. Half way there. Very Exciting!!

No airplay at present but i'm looking into it as well as chasing a publishing contract, management or whatever else i need to make it in the industry and finally get my music out there!!

Set List

My basic repertoire of songs would have to include DIXIE CHICKS. I'm known for singing Travellin Soldier, Cowboy Take Me Away and You Were Mine. Thats probably how i came to sing country in the first place. Would love to add some spice to the mix though and also sing Missy Higgins, Anna Nalick, Avril Lavigne, Ashlee Simpson, Norah Jones and Alison Krauss (who apparently i sound alot like). You can be the judge!!
