Crystal Bowl Sound Journeys
Freestyle Circle Holder
From within the woods of Salt Spring Island emerges a Songstress named Trisha Spire. With cello, vocal harmonies, keyboard and loop pedal, Trisha leads an evocative journey of connection with ancestry, the natural world and our shared heart. A unique fusion of live and electronic instrumentation. Within her community she holds free-style singing workshops, crystal bowl sound journeys and teaches voice lessons. Trisha encourages the true song crafter to emerge in all of us.
Trisha was born in Chatham Ontario, and began her technical studies with voice at age 6 through choir. Soon after moving to BC with her mother at age 12, she enrolled herself in singing lessons. Trisha played in multiple bands beginning with a metal band in her high school career. She studied classical and jazz vocals at the Victoria Conservatory of Music. She began acquainting with cello in 2017.
Trisha's choice to follow her voice and honour the song that sings her has guided her along an initiatory path... Her songs are prayers of a deeply listening heart. Trisha translates messages gifted from animal allies, the elements, and insights from the sub and collective conscious. As a second generation hypnotist to an RCH, Trisha continues to learn the healing potential of a genuinely engaging musical experience.
"For the past couple of months Ive been experiencing a block with my art of dance. No matter what, I haven't been able to move. This morning, listening to your song was the first time Ive been able to dance!!! Clearly I was putting on the wrong music for myself. Thank you for that gift!"-Alex Papy
"Ember Dawning visited me in dream time last night. To leave it short, it was spine tingling & buzzing in my veins. I may not have Celtic ancestry (to my knowledge) but there is a cellular memory that pulses through me when I experience this song. It nearly brings tears to my eyes, goose bumps, and has me singing. The kids go quiet in the car when it comes on & I sing along. I love this song. It truly resonates so deeply in my heart. Thank you"-Maya Ushikubo"

"Absolutely haunting, gorgeous, eclectic offerings from this one. Her music leaves her mark on the souls of the audience, stunning their breath away, and inviting their ear drums to a dance both new, old, and strangely familiar. Witches brew via sound waves."-Mya Wilson/ Apple Cat
