The up-close-and-personal performance video finds the charismatic newcomer performing LIVE in a cozy studio with three wonderful musicians: Luke Gibson (guitar), Rye Jackson (percussion), and Matt Deis (bass). Tristan sings about sharing a challenging relationship with her significant other. But over time, she realizes that she no longer wants to be in love with this person anymore because the individual in question oftentimes apologizes with lies and deceit. Therefore, she wants to break free from the troublesome relationship altogether. But in order to do so, she has to keep her distance.

Check out Tristan’s lyric video for her “I Don’t Wanna Love You” single to further understand why we chose her to be a part of our Bong At Home video series.

Tristan McIntosh – “I Don’t Wanna Love You” lyric video

“I can hear the phone, I can hear it ring. I can hear my heart saying don’t, don’t answer. I’d rather run away to the light instead of living in your dark on my own like a lonely dancer. Catch my breath for a minute, God knows I’ve been down this road before. I don’t wanna feel, I don’t wanna fall, I don’t wanna love you. I don’t wanna break every time you call.” – lyrics

As a child growing up, Tristan McIntosh was influenced by her father’s ‘70s record collection that gave direction for how she saw love, loss, and life. Exposure to trendsetters like Bonnie Raitt, The Beatles, and Alicia Keys meant that Tristan never saw music as a cookie-cutter box, but rather an infinity pool with immeasurable depth. At the age of eight, she moved to the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee, with her military family. During that time, she added country music to her repertoire, a genre she heavily covered during her American Idol appearances. Since then, Tristan has been sharing her message of heartbreak and healing with the world.

“God knows I’ve been down this road before.”
