“True Life Trio has created a unique musical journey...each song is a small auditory work of art meant to be intently listened to.” Ginger Murray, SF Weekly
True Life Trio performs riveting vocal harmonies from Eastern Europe, America & beyond, featuring veteran vocalists from legendary Bay Area groups Kitka and Brass Menazeri.
