Audiences enjoy Trish Lester's emotional honesty and sense of humor, whether she's sharing her own material or selections from a vast repertoire of 60's and 70's folk and pop hits. Her original songs may remind you of such artists as John Denver, Joni Mitchell and Mary Chapin Carpenter. 'Plymouth Belvedere,' her debut CD, contains 13 tracks, including 11 of her original Americana songs. Rounding out the mix are "The Water is Wide," a traditional folk tune, and "Yosemite," a John Lennon Songwriting contest award-winner from Rain Perry of Ojai, CA. Lester's original works are are well-crafted and engaging, with strong images, tight lyrics and memorable melodies. Her humorous and poignant songs (she describes them as 'witty and wise contemporary folk') comprise a CD that is more than entertainment - it's a learning experience! Production values are high on this album, recorded at Nashville Tracks Los Angeles, with the talented musicianship of veteran session players who have played for big names in the industry.
