TRUE LIFE TRIO & GARI HEGEDUS
truelifetrio.com | True Life Trio performs riveting vocal harmonies from Eastern Europe, the Americas and beyond. This innovative trio explores the creative possibilities of cross-fertilization of different traditions with unlikely timbres connecting Bulgaria to the Bayou. The group's improvisation-laced repertoire includes original songs and folk tunes from far-flung lands such as Albania, Bulgaria, Georgia, Greece, Macedonia, Mexico, Poland, Ukraine and the American South.
True Life Trio recently completed their first full-length recording, Like Never and Like Always, which was on June 10, 2016. The album, a collaboration with multi-instrumentalist Gari Hegedus, was originally commissioned by the East Bay Fund For Artists with premiere performances in November of 2014. This ambitious and exciting recording project was produced by Eric Oberthaler and was recorded by David Luke at Opus Studios in Berkeley, CA.
