Singer/songwriter Thea Tochihara, is soulful, evocative, and refuses to fit neatly into conventional genres. She draws upon influences from the blues, folk, country, and R & B music that speaks to her soul and mixes that with her classical & jazz piano training to create a fresh, original sound. Perhaps the most memorable thing about the music though, is the lyrics, which are unabashedly sincere and unflinchingly honest; and because of that they are truly brave and beautiful. These are the kind of songs that reward the listener with layers of meaning and memorable melodies. Even more rewarding is catching a live performance. Thea delivers moving songs interspersed with humorous asides and creates a warm, intimate relationship between performer and audience.
While live performances may range anywhere from solo to full band, you can find Thea accompanied by the heavenly harmonies of sisters Katie Leigh and Ashley Reynolds most frequently. The sound is something to be experienced.
