TRUE LIFE TRIO
Bulgaria to the Bayou:
A Singing Workshop with Eastern European Chanteuses True Life Trio
True Life Trio specializes in the riveting vocal harmonies from Eastern Europe, the Americas, and beyond, and features veteran vocalists from legendary Bay Area groups Kitka and Brass Menaeri. This innovative trio explores the creative possibilities of cross-fertilization of different traditions with unlikely timbres connecting Bulgaria to the Bayou. Since its inception in 2010, TLT has enchanted audiences from the San Francisco Bay Area to the Pacific Northwest.
True Life Trio comes to Astoria to perform at KALA this coming September 18 at 7:30pm. In the afternoon from 1:30pm to 3:30pm theyll be offering a vocal workshop open to anyone who lives to sing.
This workshop will explore Eastern European vocal techniques and how they can be applied to folk and popular styles from other regions. The trio will discuss and demonstrate how to develop a personal, confident, and healthy vocal technique.
Trio members Leslie Bonnett, Briget Boyle and Juliana Graffagna are immersed in musical careers as performers, producers and teachers in the Bay Area, and all share the study of eastern European vocal music study with master teachers.
Their first full-length recording, Like Never and Like Always, a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist/composer Gari Hegedus and sound designer Eric Oberthaler, is now available at http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/truelifetrio2.
