Trina’s music has been described by author and lecturer Marianne Williamson as having an almost “ethereal power” and by others as inspirational, and in the words of one fan, “It’s not just music, it’s magic. It pushes me to be more, to live more, to love more, to feel more, to reach higher.”
Trina writes songs that speak to the challenges as well as the ecstatic states that are part of being a spiritual being having a human experience.
Now living in Northfield, Minnesota with her family, Trina grew up singing with her seven sisters in rural Missouri. She began writing songs in 2008 and began performing across the nation in 2010. In 2012 her collaboration Running Free with film composer Charlie Armour was nominated for an Indie Music Channel Best Female Soundtrack award, and she opened for Marianne Williamson in St Louis, Mo. She took a break from public performance in 2013 after releasing Songs of the Beloved, her eighth self-produced album, and began facilitating toning circles and music meditation groups. Since then she has released 5 subsequent albums: Songs for the Path Home, Sky, The Circle, Together We Rise. and Serenity.
In 2018, Songwriter Elizabeth McManus invited Trina to collaborate on producing a wonderful series of songs that became the album, "May You Be Blessed" which inspired Elizabeth's Songwriter sister Ani McManus to collaborate with Trina on another album, "This Sweet Day". The process of collaborating with the sisters on their albums catalyzed a creative renaissance for Trina which is continuing.
