The TrishasLet’s start with the name. The four women in the Austin-based group – Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee, and Savannah Welch – got together in 2009 for a one-shot gig that included a song Savannah’s father had written for Trisha Yearwood. So they called themselves The Trishas, the audience loved their music, and the name stuck. They were invited to play at the Americana Music Association Conference and Festival in Nashville, which led to recording sessions with Raul Malo, Ray Wylie Hubbard, and Savanna’s father, Kevin Welch, as well as a tour with the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Todd Snider. In 2010, they put out a terrific EP, They Call Us The Trishas, and they recently released their first full-length album, High, Wide & Handsome, praised by the website roughstock.com as “a lush and lovely album sure to satiate any country fan’s cravings.” Outlaw Magazine calls it “one hell of an album,” and if you have even an ounce of affection for country music, you’re going to love this group and their sound. All four women sing and play beautifully, and their harmonies are glorious, but what really makes The Trishas stand out is the quality of the songwriting. They’ve collaborated with several country music stalwarts – folks like Bruce Robison, Jason Eady, and Jim Lauderdale – and the songs are simply outstanding. On “Little Sweet Cigars,” for instance, they sing, “I could have told you darling it would end up like this / when you’re kissed by a fool and fooled by a kiss.” Get your tickets early – this is a show you won’t want to miss!

Brandy Zdan, who grew up on the edge of the Canadian prairie in Winnipeg, has just released a new EP, Lone Hunter, recorded in Austin, Texas, featuring guest appearances by Ricky Jay Jackson and The Trishas. Brandy writes and sings dark and haunting songs with a quiet intensity that stays with you. “I’m not afraid to lose anything,” she sings on the title song, “cause it all eventually goes away.” She also plays guitar, lap-steel, and accordion with The Trishas.
