Meet Trish Lester
Audiences enjoy Trish Lester's warm and engaging style along with the wit and wisdom of her original songs. The sound is mostly folk/Americana, but she sometimes strays into country, pop, or blues.

The Early Years
Music comes naturally to Trish. At the tender age of 4, she started picking out tunes by ear on the piano-with both hands. Her dad enjoyed showing her off to company because she had perfect pitch. Piano lessons and music theory began at age 6, and she soon taught herself how to play ukulele.

High School, College & Beyond
Trish began singing with choral groups in her early teens and writing music in high school and college. After graduating from UCLA, she joined a trio and performed overseas. Mentored by the late Bud Dashiell of the folk duo Bud & Travis, Trish happily shares a vast repertoire of familiar and beloved songs of the '60s & '70s folk era. Recently, she has studied with hit songwriter Harriet Schock.

Sounds Like...?
Trish's voice may remind you of Mary Chapin Carpenter, and her original creations carry the influence of John Denver, Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and other legends. She enjoys the lighter side of life, and many of the songs she writes and shares will make you smile.

"The structure and content of Trish's original songs is logical, and her perfect rhymes make things flow well. She has a terrific wit, and her style is most unique."
                                     -Singer/Songwriter Melissa Kaye

Her song, "The World Changed Forever," written in response to the tragic events of 9/11, won an award in the 2005 Artists Helping Artists Call to Arts! Juried Song Contest. "How Do We Go On," a cut from Trish's debut album, "Plymouth Belvedere," was published on a compliation CD featuring 14 female artists, the album, entitled "Beautiful," raises funds for women's shelters.

Trish is a memer of BMI, Songwriters Guild of America, Los Angeles Women in Music, SongsAlive, FolkWorks, GoGirls Music, and Kulak's Woodshed.
