Music

"[Trisha] O'Keefe wields her voice with a gutsy strength that seems to belie her age, bleeding raw emotion into her lyrics, effortlessly moving from hushed confession to a full-throated smoky bellow in the space of seconds. And when she endlessly holds a note, her voice seems a separate entity altogether, fired into the stillness to strikingly evocative effect."~ Naila Francis, SoundStage Columnist (The Intelligencer)

"Trisha O'Keefe is the kind of act that I love to see: passionate, smart and driven to make it happen."~ Jesse Lundy (Point Entertainment)

"Trisha O'Keefe...[has] got the heart of a real rock chick who sounds like she could take on both the vast urban sprawl or the lonesome country with just her guitar strapped to her back." ~ Monica Ortwein, Associate Editor (Pulse Weekly).

"Trisha O'Keefe has the voice of a modern day Ann Wilson along with superb songwriting." ~ Randy Nicklaus, Producer (INXS, Blondie, Meat Loaf, Aretha Franklin, Clint Black). - Multiple


“There she goes again. Trisha O’Keefe keeps giving us great music that fuels our appetite for something exciting and new. On her latest release, Star Burns Brightest, O’Keefe really shines and let’s us know what she is made of… a rock goddess.”
Madalyn Sklar, GoGirlsMusic.com - GoGirlsMusic.com

Bio

Trisha O'Keefe has been working hard, and soaring to new heights in the music industry. In just a few short years, Trisha has received countless exposure in the mediums of press, radio, and television. She is a driven, poised, and passionate entrepreneur who is a promising front-runner in the world of DIY artists.

O'Keefe has worked hard to make a name for herself in the music industry. She has been a songwriter for 12 years, recording demos from the tender age of 12. She chose not to accept Songwriting and Vocal Scholarships from the prestigious Berklee College of Music at 17, and instead independently released her first CD "All The Honest Liars".

O'Keefe was soon writing source music for the ABC Daytime Drama "All My Children", a show that airs for an international audience of millions, by 18. She became a regionally-touring artist by 19, and was a guest vocalist on her first national commercial, the Coke Zero campaign "ChillTop" with artist G Love, at the age of 20. At 21, she made her national television debut, performing on the talk show Soap Talk, and fielding an interview from hosts Lisa Rinna and Ty Treadway.

Trisha released her fourth CD, titled "Star Burns Brightest", in May 2007, and relocated to Nashville, TN in August of 2008. She has just recently signed a digital distribution deal with online music provider InGrooves for a worldwide re-release of "Star Burns Brightest". Trisha took a position as the Director of Contemporary Worship/Creative Arts Coordinator at a progressive Methodist church in Albuquerque, NM, in 2010. A prolific writer, O'Keefe continued to pen radio-friendly Country and Pop/Rock tunes, and is currently recording her next album project, tentatively titled "Once Black Cadillac", with producer/musician/singer-songwriter Andrew Lipke (Get The Led Out).
