Acoustic Folk Indie Singer/songwriter

Trista Shay

About

Trista Shay is an up and coming prairie singer-songwriter from Winnipeg, Manitoba that uses soft melodies and expressive instrumentation to express the depth of life. Inspired by the idea of tomorrow and the hope it can bring, she also explores the motif of self-development through the trials and tribulations each day brings.

 

Trista Shay’s music is soft and melancholy and lyrically sharp. She invokes the vocal rawness of artists like Dermot Kennedy, the soft ambiance of Lucy Rose, and the lyrical musicality of Ben Howard. 

 

In the 2019 Demo release of her first song, “If Only”, Trista showcases the depth of her lyrical capabilities and her ability to draw people in with melodic rawness. Her songwriting capability demonstrates a sophistication beyond her years as she conjures images of hope and loss and tells a greater story of the risk of dreams without action.

 

“I believe music offers a mirror in which we can look at our own lives,” reflects Trista. “There are things that bring out the darkness and light respectively, and it is up to us to make something beautiful with it.”

 

Audiences at the Harvest Moon Festival, Trout Forest Music Festival, the I Am Festival, momondays Winnipeg and several house concerts and shows in the province, have relished in Trista Shay’s unique vocals, strong songwriting capability, and conveyance of emotion. It is a unique and beautiful journey to watch Trista Shay’s music unfold and demonstrate a wide range of all that is.
