Updated: Nov 22, 2020
“We enjoy working on our songs and singing the harmonies which brings out our sisterhood, joy, hope and our love for music.”-Trisha & Thara
The teen sister pop/duo Trisha & Thara have been performing and creating music together since they were in grade school. The family has lived in Missouri, Chicago and Boston, so the duo has performed in many different cities across the country, opening at festivals and popular city shows. They play the keyboard and ukulele, and are seriously focused on songwriting. They work each day in perfecting their harmonious blend and have discovered how to complement each other’s unique vocals. It is clear to new audiences that they know how to achieve masterful harmonies in their synchronized vocal arrangements.
“You used to be” is their debut single releasing on December 4, 2020.
“For this song, we wanted to write about something that others can relate to; friendship, love/break-up, separation and hope. We thought that the idea of a special someone who you loved the most, is not around anymore, would relate to many people going through a hard time.”-Trisha and Thara
