"She's not just another girl with a guitar...Trisha O'Keefe is something special. She is a true songsmith, who takes on her life's stories with a certain blend of whimsy and sadness, fusing intelligent lyrics and irresistible melodies. She holds you spellbound with a voice that is both passionate and evocative, exposing her deepest pains and greatest joys with an intensity that begs to be listened to."
Trisha O'Keefe has been working hard, and soaring to new heights in the music industry. In just a few short years, she has received countless exposure in the mediums of press, radio, and television. She is a driven, poised, and passionate entrepreneur who is a promising front-runner in the world of DIY artists.
O'Keefe has worked hard to make a name for herself in the music industry. She has been a songwriter for 12 years, recording demos from the tender age of 12. She chose not to accept Songwriting and Vocal Scholarships from the prestigious Berklee College of Music at 17, and instead independently released her first CD "All The Honest Liars".
O'Keefe was soon writing source music for the ABC Daytime Drama "All My Children", a show that airs for an international audience of millions, by 18. She became a regionally-touring artist by 19, and was a guest vocalist on her first national commercial, the Coke Zero campaign "ChillTop" with artist G Love, at the age of 20. At 21, she made her national television debut, performing on the talk show Soap Talk, and fielding an interview from hosts Lisa Rinna and Ty Treadway.
Trisha released her fourth CD, titled "Star Burns Brightest", in May 2007, and relocated to Nashville, TN in August of 2008. She then signed a digital distribution deal with online music provider InGrooves for a worldwide re-release of "Star Burns Brightest". Trisha took a position as the Director of Contemporary Worship/Creative Arts Coordinator at a progressive Methodist church in Albuquerque, NM, in 2010. A prolific writer, O'Keefe continued to pen radio-friendly Country and Pop/Rock tunes, and has just completed recording her new album, titled "Once Black Cadillac", with producer/musician/singer-songwriter Andrew Lipke (Get The Led Out). The album was released June 17, 2014.
