Bio

Tricia Sanders understood the impact of words clearly when she won a local and statewide contest for a poem she wrote in 8th grade called “My Mother”. She states, “I remember when I was writing the poem for this contest I knew if I wrote something mushy or sentimental; especially something about my mother that it would win. I had a little strategy going on”. A writer emerged.

Born and raised in Chicago, Illinois on the south side; Tricia’s love of the arts was cultivated by the colorful people she was surrounded by in a run down apartment building. There she was exposed to all kinds of music from rock, jazz, blues to classical. Music was always playing in the building. One tenant she remembers vividly to this day is Ms. Effie Taylor. She credits Ms. Taylor to influencing the swag of her spoken word pieces. Sanders adds, “Effie would sing along with KoKo Taylor’s song, I’m A Woman with such conviction and coolness and I thought this lady was so sick with it. I wanted that “it” she had”.

A huge influence behind Tricia’s creativity goes to her beloved Mother Annette Wright who was a passionate music lover herself. Sanders mother would make Tricia along with her brother and sister perform when company came over. ”She would make us sing and dance and I would be so nervous. I was such a shy little kid”. Tricia and her twin sister would also sit with their mother and watch what are now considered to be classic movies. These movies taught Tricia that words could be used gracefully and that they could sound like music if you twisted them in such a way. She knew that she wanted to be in the entertainment industry; she just didn’t know how or when it would happen.

As a young adult Tricia relocated to Ohio and spent most of her time raising her daughter Paisley Dawn and working in the corporate world to make a living but she never lost her love of singing and writing nor her desire to be in the entertainment industry. Over the years she continued to write and she would work her singing chops by singing to her daughter all the time. Once daughter Paisley Dawn was off to college she felt that this was now her chance to take a leap of faith so she started performing locally with a R&B cover band called “Pure Onyx” that was put together by her now husband Tony Sanders who is no stranger to the entertainment business. Pure Onyx being relatively successful on a local level, the couple understood that if they wanted to take the entertainment thing to the next level they would have to go to the epicenter of entertainment; Atlanta, Georgia.

Fast forward to now; Going through a developmental period and a couple of hiccups along the way Tricia All Day is now making a name for herself. When she hit the stage and begin to flow…the shy little kid is no more. SHE take charge and her words will make you stop and listen. She was once told that she has this sweet and approachable spirit but then when she take the stage it’s all gangsta.

Tricia’s words are full of emotion and wit that will hit you in the gut because of their realness. Tricia All Day — mother, wife, sister, writer, poet, singer —A woman who defies a simple label is definitely someone to watch.
