Born in Bondy, France singer Tricia Evy grew up on the Caribbean island of Guadeloupe. Her early attraction to music and a passion for singing was gained from listening to artists like the legendary Guadeloupan, Patrick Saint Eloi and the iconic Frenchman George Brassens.
Back in France, she dedicated herself to the Jazz idiom and formed a Jazz Trio in 2007 with two talented musicians: Xavier Richardeau (baritone and tenor saxophones) and Jean-Philippe Bordier (guitar). This beautiful musical collaboration led to the recording of her debut album, Beginning which was released October 24, 2010.
Tricia draws her biggest influences from Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole or Mel Torme and adds it to her distinctly Caribbean music roots.
Tricia has worked extensively both in France and overseas with engagements at Paris' famous Duc des Lombards, Sunset, Baiser Sale', Enghien Jazz Festival, Marciac Jazz Festival, Jazz Festival in Doha, Qatar, Carib In Jazz Festival at Olympia, Festival Voix by Voice from elsewhere in Guadeloupe, Orleans Jazz Festival, "Jazz en Re'", Biguine Jazz Festival in Martinique, Caribbean Festival Influences. Recently returning from a second tour in Australia Tricia participated in the Jazz at Vienne - Sydney festival and one of Australia's oldest most prestigious and Sydney's largest Jazz festival "The Manly Jazz Festival".
Tricia is now working on her second album which will be out sometime in 2012.
