Tricia Parish is an accomplished vocalist and acoustic guitarist who’s original and cover tunes will soothe your soul. Canadian born, Tricia’s influences have been none other than Joni Mitchell, Sheryl Crow, Sarah McLachlan, Shawn Colvin and Shania Twain. Her pure voice and warm lyrics will transform you to the child in your mother’s arms and rock you! She started playing guitar at age 15 and has been singing since she was 2 years old, according to her mother. Spending much of her adult life in Colorado, you’ll hear the influence of the mountain music. She currently resides in the Manitou Springs area with her family. Her guitar of choice is a Taylor, Model T5. A single mom for 16 years, she has her first album of originals released in 2010. Her music can be categorized as alternative country rock. Your ears will be pleased with the result.
A Tricia Parish show is guaranteed to stir the senses and appeal to multiple emotions. One moment she’ll have the audience up and dancing to a contemporary rock cover and the next they’ll be humming along to one of her more mellow originals. Her versatility as a singer and talent as a songwriter make her shows “Can’t Miss” events on the Front Range.
Tricia Parish is a yet to be discovered singer-song writing gem.Her work consists of well-crafted songs with a wide range of rhythmic styles such as driving rock to Latin beats, ballads and pop.The most striking thing, however, is her voice which I find is a cross between Stevie Nicks,Shaun Colvin and Allison Kraus.I have worn this album out I love it that much!!
Drummer and Guitarist, Co-owner of Ranch Recording, Manitoba, Canada.
My introduction to Tricia Parish and her music was in the early part of 2013. Over the years I have seen her perform in various venues as a solo act, two/three piece as well as a full band in front of audiences and crowds of all sizes, ages and backgrounds. As a solo act, Tricia delivers a consistent beautiful acoustic sound with a voice that can be endearing and addictive. Her incredible musical repertoire includes an ever growing multitude of artists, styles and genres that clearly demonstrate the dedicated prep work she puts into every gig (as if it was the first). Significant moments in every Parish performance are the song originals sprinkled throughout. Her CD, “Tricia Parish Album”, continues to surprise many fans with titles like “Change in the Weather”, “Goin’ Down the Road” and the favorite “Sailor from Marseille” which exhibits solid natural commercial potential. There is no doubt that Tricia will continue to be an active part of the Colorado Springs music scene, a scene that would gladly welcome another CD release.
