Bio

16 Years Old, a song from The Light in Your Secret, was the very first song that I wrote, after the encouragement of close friends and an art therapist, who recognized my natural creative way of writing poetry to move thru healing experiences and expressing what I lived.
At sixteen, my family was in crisis. My Father was struggling to stay employed and my mother was diagnosed with schizophrenia and had to be hospitalized. I wasn't about to let the ship sink, so I rolled up my sleeves and worked three jobs, to pay my families rent, while going to high school and doing many of the domestic chores my mother had done.
In a sense, I ran away from my dreams of being a singer, to keep my family afloat. My dreams were too frivolous for basic survival. I sewed my own clothes and took care of the house, singing to my Joni Mitchell album at the top of my lungs. While other girls my age were dating and exploring boys, parties and dancing, I was skimping every hard-earned penny to buy material to make clothes. Extremely uncomfortable in my own skin, and very overweight, I felt like a freak, to put it mildly.
Writing 16 Years Old was like opening a door to the creative, expressive, sensitive, songstress I had always wanted to be. It was like who I was at sixteen, came home to claim her place in the world, and fulfill her dream. It was the beginning of many more songs to come. I then discovered that writing a song helped me resolve unanswered questions and move forward through the ups and downs of being alive. My four kids were growing up and leaving home at that time and finally I was able to put my time and resources into my childhood dream of being a singer!
I don't know if that's the stream that my songwriting will go in, but Lost in a Feeling from Call to the Sparrow is about falling in love and is a happy, hopeful song. I'd like more of those to come from my lips in the future, but I don't seem to have any control over the content of my songs like some songwriters.

If I could say anything from the vast experiences of raising four children as a single parent, creating two businesses (Aromatherapy and Reflexology), and living in Mexico with my kids for five months........ I would say the biggest risk in life is giving your heart to someone, and the second biggest risk is making CDs as a singer/songwriter. One of the greatest joys I've had in life besides writing songs and being in love, is being with my granddaughter..... she rocks likes nobody's business!
I leave you with a quote from one of my fans, Elroy Diemert:
“Threza is a remarkable and striking performer, but even more than this, her originality in songwriting will contribute to art and culture in this province. Her voice is unique, rich, and loaded with color, while her ability on the piano is quite capable of moving an audience all on its own.”
