Pick of the Day: The Trishas CD Release Party

The Trishas

“Gold and silver are very hard to find, love is rarer it don’t shine,” sings Liz Foster on the pretty, exultant final track of the Trisha’s debut LP, High, Wide & Handsome. Equally rare are the talents of these amazing women; each writes in their own distinct manner, and they harmonize like angels. They first came together in 2009 to perform a tribute for Savannah Welch’s father, songwriter Kevin Welch. They knew immediately they were onto something. A five-song EP arrived in 2010 with a strong bluegrass/folk flavor abetted by the extraordinary gospel blues boogie of “Trouble About My Soul.” There’s nothing quite that rockin’ on the new album, but plenty of gospel-soul flavor of an Americana strain somewhere between Laurel Canyon and Nashville. They recruit some terrific co-writers for help (Jason Eady, Owen Temple, Bruce Robison). It’s a true family affair for Welch, whose dad and brother also lend their writing skills to a couple tracks. The women’s personalities mix with the co-writers to produce a fine array of very different tracks still cut from the same spool of cloth. Their music’s so damn arresting it’ll be morning before you make bail. $8-$13; 10:30pm - midnight (doors at 7pm) Fri, Aug 10; Floore Country Store; 14492 Old Bandera Road (Helotes), (210) 695-8827, liveatfloores.com.
