Trisha Denise is a singer-songwriter and a vocal arranger. Her love of family (both human and furry – she has a clowder of cats and a pack of dogs) and the grace of God inspire and inform her music. During her High School years, she suffered serious bullying that led to attempted suicide. It was mainly God’s grace that sustained her. Her parents, who learned about her pain only later, were very supportive as well.
That chapter of her life led her to create her first EP album entitled “Sunshine” with the carrier single “Mahalaga”. “Mahalaga” was nominated as the Ballad Song of the Year at the 4th Wish Music Awards 2019. It is also an OST of the movie “Between Maybes” starring Gerald Anderson and Julia Barretto.
Trisha Denise has been making songs since she was 11, and had many opportunities to share her music. She has collaborated and written songs for numerous artists including Jake Zyrus, Iñigo Pascual, KZ Tandingan, Janella Salvador, Aicelle Santos, Kyle Echarri, Edward Barber, to name a few.
