Aside from live performances, the night will feature an ‘audition-only’ open mic segment and a question and answer session between the artists and the audience. Check out the official flyers after the jump.
The epitome of multitalented, Trish has earned the right to reach for and fly with the stars. Perhaps it’s the relentless depth of her passion or the intoxicating quality of her voice, but the dance-driven, electro-pop infused entertainer has an undeniable star power. Earning the coveted title as the “next big thing”, her music intertwines the elements of electrifying R&B and captivating funk with an edgy hip-hop feel.
Born on a leap year into a family of musicians, the stunning beauty was taught the value of arts at a young age. Her father is a guitarist who has shared the stage with icons such as Peter Tosh and the late Bob Marley. Trish was constantly surrounded by a creative outlet that enforced singing and performing as a form of self-expression. “Can you imagine if all singers sounded and performed alike?” Trish says of her project. “My musical taste is so diverse; I have been infuenced by many different genres of music.”
With a voice to match her charismatic spirit, Trish has a tone that catches the attention of the audience everywhere and industry professionals have begun to take note. “I have not seen a star quality this raw in my entire career” says Trish’s mentor – Luther Brown, who is an internationally-renown choreographer & artistic director who has worked with the likes of Janet Jackson, Brandy, Jully Black & Keshia Chante.
Brown met Trish while she was performing with Act Out, a youth-run organization addressing hot topics such as drugs and self-image. “I saw her perform and was really taken back. There is no one else who looks, moves or sounds like her.” From there, he knew he had a star on his hands and took her under his wing. Trish laughs recalling of their first dance rehearsal, “I didn’t even know I could dance like what he brought out of me!”
Down to earth, gracious and charming, Trish mixes her performance background with a bravado that captures your ear. To date, she has performed at various showcases and concerts in Orlando, New York, Los Angeles and Toronto. She also served as the opening act for Flo-Rida’s Canadian Tour. Her highly anticipated catchy beat-fuelled single “Bump” was released earlier this year. The accompanying Internet video was directed by Marc Andre Debruyne and showcases a dark, grimy and mysterious side of Trish, which has viewers asking for more. Her first video, “Don’t Watch Me” featuring J Diggz & Oh!, was directed by famed director – Director X (Jay-Z, Rihanna, Usher), and is a career highlight for Trish; “I was always a huge fan of his work. It was a dream come true for him to be involved in this project.”
It’s rare to find a new artist who isn’t looking for an easy break on a reality show or casting call, and Trish works for every opportunity that opens for her. Exceptionally talented and supported by an all-star management team, she is poised to surprise the industry with her achievements.
With a glow of confidence in her voice, she adds – “I’m an artist that puts my heart into everything and I’m ready to inspire the world.”
