VIDEO: Denton’s Triston Coomes performs at The HUB in Allen

The HUB is a relatively new venue that opened early last year in Allen, creating a family-friendly suburban concept that features live music, movie nights, kids art camps, sports events and more.

UNT-alum Triston Coomes performed at The HUB’s “Midday Music” series last week, serenading the semi-indoor section of the site despite the excessive heat.

Coomes’ tender serenades are like a gentle breeze on a warm day, as the wind rises and falls over a hillside. In the video above, he plays a solo acoustic rendition of his song “Misplaced.”

His last music releases were in 2021 – three stripped-down singles that give a window into his songwriting and vocal talent. There is currently a new single in the works with Hunter Napier at Crescent Castle Studios in Denton, a song called “Stay High” that he’s been working on for the past two years.

“I’m working on a few new songs,” Coomes said after his show at The HUB. “I think an EP is next. In the long-term, a full-production album. And once stuff starts stacking up, I’ll get a tour planned.”

Although he’s been on a bit of a break from releasing music, Coomes has been busy in the music scene.

Coomes has been playing keyboard for a popular country artist, mentoring & developing young artists, and providing management services for multiple regional artists.

“When COVID hit, I was looking to diversify,” Coomes said. ““For the first part of this year I was working as a production manager, monitor engineer, and keyboard player on tour with [Liberty, TX artist] Jacob Stelly. Then I went out with [Oklahoma artist] Kaitlin Butts for a few months as a tour manager. In August, September and October I’ll be on the road playing keys with Jarrod Morris.”
