Bio & Background

Compulsively harmonizing since she was a kid, annoying her brother to the point that "Stop harmonizing!" became a common household refrain, Trish was born into a love for music. Although never making a career or serious hobby of music in the early part of her adult life, when life found her moving to Longmont in 2015, the thriving local music scene ignited a dormant passion, setting her on the path to becoming a singer-songwriter. Deeply inspired by local artists such as Billy Shaddox. Bonnie Sims, Moors & McCumber, Antonio Lopez, Tim Ostdiek, David Coile and Oliver Jacobson, Trish tried her hand at the fiddle and mandolin before settling on the guitar. Her first original song came in 2017 inspired by frustrations with her husband, and she soon discovered how much satisfaction she found in tuning into thoughts, challenges and joys and expressing herself through music.  Alive with excitement over the real and tangible benefits that music could have in the lives of those facing many types of challenges, Trish co-founded Sound Bridge Music, a local music based non-profit that sought to connect local musicians with the community. Trish went on to provide her "savant-like" harmonizing skills to lend backing vocals to several local bands and collaborations, and currently the former front person for As you Wish and as well as a backing vocalist for the David Coile Detachment. Trish currently is performing solo as well as under the band name Applegate. 

 Ever-present in the landscape of Trish's life & music are the social and practical challenges she faces due to a progressive degenerative retinal disease called Retinitis Pigmentosa which has left her legally blind with little functional vision. Although her situation creates many obstacles, her beautiful German Shepherd guide dog Drew eases her mobility issues and is her ever-present companion, partner in crime and performance.  Trish credits her disability for the opportunity to be more compassionate, patient and accepting of bother herself and others.
