TLT receives East Bay Fund for Artists Matching Grant!

We are very excited to announce that we received an Artists grant from the East Bay Community Foundation to create a new piece about memory, expressed through Eastern European songs, poetry,  movement and original music.  We will partner with string virtuoso Gari Hegedus to create a compelling musical journey of heart and mind that will premiere in November.  The project includes live performances, a video and a full-length CD .

Here's the challenge: by July 15, we need to match the grant dollar for dollar in order to receive the funds. So, we need your help to get us there. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation of any amount. Your support would be most appreciated!

True Life Trio at the Freight & Salvage Coffeehouse

Jewish Music Festival, 2013


Our debut EP "Home" is available on cdbaby

 "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

The album Home is a collection of seven songs from the rich traditions of Eastern Europe and the Americas, as well as original songs and arrangements by trio members. This community-funded EP is an exciting debut for this passionate, dynamic group. Here's what our fans are saying about Home:

"Trance-porting and trance-formative"

"Beautiful singing-the blend and attitude are as one"

"Sustained spinal tingles"
