An independent artist with an old school sound – meet Trish Toledo, a musical time
traveler who reinvests brilliant pop and soul ballads from the early Sixties with modern
fire and fortitude.
From Carson, California, a community south of Los Angeles, Trish was born into an
Ecuadorian-Guatemalan family with much older siblings. Their musical tastes – plus the
influence of her father, who was a musician – provided her with access to music that
existed long before her time. Although the first music she sang was cumbias and
ballads, she discovered that it was the timeless pop and soul ballads that she felt most
While her father’s musical influences permeated her childhood, it was his “musician’s
life” that accounted for his absence from the family. Subsequently, when she became a
teen parent herself, Trish put her own musical aspirations on hold in order to offer
undivided attention as a mother. In May 2017, now old enough to realize his mother’s
formidable vocal abilities, it was her now 15-year son that noted the void in his mom’s
life, as he encouraged her to reestablish her musical journey.
Exploring a classic catalog of material, Trish selects songs to record based on how the
themes most faithfully mirror her life experiences. ”What I have gone through, or am
going through,” she says.
Now writing and recording her original music from her home in Long beach , CA with
her band , Trish is getting ready to release a full length album for all her loving and
Trish Toledo does what she does best: sings, performs, and connects a historic line
between the music of an earlier era, and the audiences of today. “People are so happy
that I’m reviving this music,” Trish concludes. “ Bringing it back – so that a new
generation gets to hear this.”
The Inciters play northern soul music.
Northern Soul takes the Motown/Stax ethic but adds a stronger back-beat with more adventurous production, and The Inciters continue this tradition in grand style. With ten members (sometimes more!) wielding drums, bass, guitar, a full horn section, and three female vocals, The Inciters have no problem filling a room with the powerful sound of soul. The three vocalists lead the band through finely crafted original songs as well as traditional soul music that will get you out of your seat and start to dance!
The Inciters are from Santa Cruz, but travel the world in support of their internationally released records.Seeing them in their hometown is a unique experience.
They bring in guest singers on occasion, sometimes quite famous soul artists. And they always have as much fun on stage as the audience does!
