CD Review: The Trishas Like'em "High, Wide & Handsome"

From Austin, TX comes the all-female country band, The Trishas with their full-length debut album “High, Wide & Handsome.” The album will be released on August 7 through their own label, The Trishas Music LLC. The album includes an impressive list of guest songwriters and musicians like Kevin Welch, Bruce Robison, Kenny Vaughan and Tammy Rogers.

The album begins with the mellow stroll of “Mother Of Invention.” You instantly notice the exceptional harmonizing between The Trishas. The sounds of their songs are deep-rooted in country as displayed in “Liars & Fools” and “Looking At Me.” The album has a very gentle and comforting feel, due to the wonderful singing of Jamie Wilson, Liz Foster, Kelley Mickwee and Savannah Welch. The group rarely picks up the tempo, but there is little need to when songs like “One Down” and “Rainin’ Inside” display such passion in their singing. The album includes a link to down a bonus song which has The Trishas performing with Raul Malo on the original song “A Far Cry From You.”

The Trishas are filling up their tour schedule with dates running from August 3rd to November 2nd. For a complete list of dates, please visit thetrishas.com.
