“Trina Brunk's music has an ethereal power.”
— Marianne Williamson
Sky is Trina Brunk’s 11th collection since she released Songs for the Path Home in 2016 and contains two tracks from the unofficial 2016 release (no longer available to the public) Water is Life. Trina delivers powerful and inspiring lyrics through soaring, stirring vocals, gentle piano soundscapes and soulful guitar. The title track is based on a quote by American Buddhist Nun Pema Chödrön: "You are the sky. Everything else -- it's just the weather."
Trina’s music has been described by author and lecturer Marianne Williamson as having an “ethereal power” and by others as inspirational, and in the words of one fan, “It’s not just music, it’s magic. It pushes me to be more, to live more, to love more, to feel more, to reach higher.” She writes songs that speak to the challenges as well as the ecstatic states that are part of being a spiritual being having a physical experience.
A recent transplant to the Pacific Northwest, Trina grew up singing with her seven sisters in rural Missouri. She began writing songs in 2008 and began performing across the nation in 2010. In 2012 her collaboration Running Free with film composer Charlie Armour was nominated for an Indie Music Channel Best Female Soundtrack award, and she opened for Marianne Williamson in St Louis, Mo.. She took a break from public performance in 2013 after releasing Songs of the Beloved, her eighth self-produced album, and began facilitating toning circle and music meditation groups, which she is currently offering at Unity of Portland.
This album release represents her re-emergence into public performance at a time that cries out for heart-centered, inspiring music that doesn’t bypass the difficult stuff.
