Tristan Horan is thrilled to have been chosen as a finalist for PBS’s Celebration of Music: Rhode Island. Tristan has been acting and singing since he was five years old. For the past eight years, he has also been composing his own music. Tristan recently released a single titled Child with Bristol Studios in Boston, Massachusetts.

Tristan learned about the world of acting at a very young age. He was very shy as a child so his mother signed him up for a theater summer camp. Because of his introverted nature, he declined any speaking roles. His first stage role was that of the Sun. His job was to raise or bring down a picture of the Sun as the narrator instructed. Tristan continued participating in theater from that point forward. At the age of ten, during a visit to New York City, Tristan saw the Broadway musical production of The Phantom of the Opera for the first time. At that moment, Tristan also became devoted to music. Soon after his trip to New York, after much begging and pleading, his parents bought him a piano.

Tristan’s love for music and singing continued to grow. During his high school years, he performed in several leading roles for several musical productions. He was cast as Archibald Craven in The Secret Garden, as Clyde in the musical Bonnie and Clyde, as Brett in 13 The Musical and as Sweeney Todd in Sweeney Todd the Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Tristan recently performed at Boston College Theater of Performing Arts as Billy Flynn in the musical Chicago. Tristan has also performed in other non musical plays such as the Importance of Being Earnest as Algernon and Get It Together as Harold, among others. Read more on Celebration of Music.

Cameron Thierry is better known to his fans as Infamous Thierry. The name “Infamous” was given to him by an OG when he was young, and it stuck when he later found it was a synonym for “notorious.” Thierry explains that “Infamous is a representation of the hoods across the world, about having enough ambition to make it out.” With “I Remember” at 2.5 million views on YouTube, he has scheduled his new single “Projects” to drop early summer. “It’s a song for everyone in the world, whoever came from where they were to prosperity,” he says, “it explains a lot of what I had to do and what I lost to make it out.”

Infamous Thierry represents his hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana where Boosie Badazz, Webbie, and Kevin Gates originated. He states, “I grew up listening to Webbie’s “Savage Life,” Lil Boosie’s “Badazz,” Kevin Gates’ “All Or Nothin’,” and Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter.” Listening to these artists inspired Thierry to start making music around the age of seven, leading to his career in the entertainment and music industry, which he feels to be his greatest achievement so far.

The sound he brings to his music has been influenced heavily by Boosie, Webbie, Kevin Gates, Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Meek Mill, Drake, Future, Nipsey Hussle, and Wiz Khalifa. As of right now, his playlist consists of Meek Mill, Young Dolph, Drake, Kevin Gates, and Dave East. “If I could collaborate with any one artist living or dead it would have to be Jay Z. I chose Jay because I know it wouldn’t jus’ be a song he’d give me so much knowledge-making that one track. Plus the song would be a classic,” Thierry says.
