Lamitschka: Music has many new fans throughout Europe who
may be hearing about you for the first time. How would you describe
yourself and the music you play to someone who has never seen or
Trinity Bradshaw: I am a down to earth gal with a firey edge
and love for music. I sing, perform, write and play music to inspire.
My music is within the Country genre, with pop and roots influences.
Lamitschka: How was the last year for you? What were your
Trinity Bradshaw: Last year was absolutely amazing. I
couldn’t have asked for a better team, manager and of course my
wonderful supporters from around the country. I worked very hard,
which lead to winning a Canadian Songwriting contest sponsored by
Sugar Crisp to start of 2012. I was in and out of the studio
recording my original songs, playing with some amazing musicians, I
played Big Valley Jambouree, and to top things off I won Amp Radio’s
Rock Star battle of the bands.
Lamitschka: What is your latest CD and how’s it doing?
Trinity Bradshaw: We have been working very hard to ensure
that the final product is ready for release, therefore I have not yet
released a CD. I am very excited to be making my first self titled EP
debut on May 7th in Canada!
Lamitschka: Do you write the songs yourself? If not, how do
you go about finding the songs for your CD?
Trinity Bradshaw: Most of the songs I have written by
myself, but there is a wicked tracked titled “Boy Crazy”
that I had co-written with my manager/producer and another incredible
writer. I love co-writing and will definitely be doing more of it!
Lamitschka: Please tell us about the songs on your album
Trinity Bradshaw: I rarely ever sit down and convince myself
to write a song. You can expect to hear my real emotions and feelings
expressed in all of the tracks. Some are related to my own life
experiences and others are written about people in my life and their
experiences. I often write a song if I am in need of a good cry, or
need to vent about something that I feel will help someone else.
Lamitschka: Your current single is being played by radio.
What do you feel is special about this song that makes people want to
Trinity Bradshaw: Exciting!!! I wrote the song “Big
Town” while driving all the way across the country to make my
dreams come true. Along the way, I wrote this song about my
adventures during the amazing road trip. I want listeners to feel
happy while listening to this song, and want everyone to know that
you can ultimately do anything you want to do if you put your mind to
it! *Anything is possible*
Lamitschka: What is your favorite song among all the songs
you have recorded and what’s the story behind it?
Trinity Bradshaw: I would have to say that my favorite song
thus far would have to be “Coming Home”. I wrote this song
after being away from home for quite some time and I needed to
release my emotions and write a happy song to turn my sad emotions
into good ones. I believe that everyone will relate to this song, and
I sure hope it makes them feel as good as it makes me feel.
Lamitschka: How much creative control do you have over your
Trinity Bradshaw: I believe that you have as much control in
life as you allow yourself. Therefore, I have 100 percent control
over how creative I can become.
Lamitschka: There’s a lot of work that goes into a number
one hit. What did it take to make it in your case?
Trinity Bradshaw: If it were number one already, I would
have an answer. Overall, I dont believe in formulas and the “musts”
in the business. I want to make people feel good, because that is
what music is all about, right? I put all of my heart, passion and
energy into every song – I think THAT’S the formula for a number one
Lamitschka: What do you think about today’s music scene
versus its post and where do you see it going in the future?
Trinity Bradshaw: I love music, and I have always admired
how it changes over the years. I know that I am meant to write the
music of the future….and that is exactly what I will do. I am
hoping that more heart and passion goes into the lyric and meaning of
Lamitschka: What was your big break that got you into the
Trinity Bradshaw: Hard work. It truly does pay off. At this
point, I have stopped dreaming of that “Big Break”, I hear
of it happening to other artists, but I want to make it based on
dedication and hard work itself.
Lamitschka: Before you became a star, were your friends and
family supportive or was it a struggle?
Trinity Bradshaw: I love the term “star” but I
dont believe I will ever consider myself a star. I am just doing what
I love, and I want to share it with the world. Yes, my family has
always believed in me. Ever since they bought me my first karaoke
machine when I was only 4 years old.
Lamitschka: What inspired you to become a songwriter?
Trinity Bradshaw: When I was a little girl, I would write
poems when my mother would ground me to my room for getting in
trouble. When I was in grade seven, I decided to take guitar lessons,
and I wrote my first song only a few days after the first lesson. It
felt amazing, so I kept writing.
Lamitschka: What drives you?
Trinity Bradshaw: My vision. I can picture and feel exactly
where I will be and what I will be doing for the rest of my life. I
know it sounds cliché, but I feel it every single day. I know my
time is near, I just have to keep pushing and working hard – and
loving it of course.
Lamitschka: What’s unique about you that will differentiate
you from other artists?
Trinity Bradshaw: First of all, I don’t look like your
typical artist within the country genre. I will be myself as long as
I can and will not change for anyone. Which is what I want other
people to know – there is no “standard” when it comes to
music. Although I would look pretty cute with long beautiful locks of
blond hair…I think my music also sets itself a part from what you
would normally hear on the radio.
Lamitschka: Many music fans today get their information
about artists online. Do you have your own website and what will fans
Trinity Bradshaw: I most certainly do, you can find my
website at www.trinitybradshaw.com.
You will find pictures, music, other social media links and anything
you need to know about me.
Lamitschka: Describe what a perfect day is like for you.
Trinity Bradshaw: Preferably no snow. In all honesty, I have
a trick for making everyday a good day. I never ever noticed this
before, but my close friends and others will realize that I tend to
use the phrase “omg, this is the best day ever” when the
smallest of events happen. Ever since I noticed what I was doing, I
realized that I chose one thing from every single day to be better
than the last day, and in the end, your last day will be your best,
and every day would have been good.
Lamitschka: Most careers don’t last as long as yours.
What’s given your career the staying power?
Trinity Bradshaw: I don’t plan on it ever ending.
