PR Log - Dec 08, 2012 - San Francisco, California -- From the very first moments of “I’m Coming Home” to the last chorus, “Holidays when dreams come true,” her new album, “In the Spirit of Love” makes it clear that this singer-songwriter is a woman on a mission.

Her lyrics poetically express her deepest feelings. “My two edged sword pierced every lie, made shadows disappear.” and “Through the valley of sorrow and pain, my sorrow turned to peace.”
“I chose to release this album as Tricia and not Tricia Greenwood to be free of the past and my music helps me to heal my heart and conquer the pain. I have worked very hard to overcome life’s tragedies of divorce and betrayal. I have learned how to unlock the fear and loneliness that controlled me throughout my life and I now see myself as a victorious warrior. Enduring the loss of those I love never gets any easier, after my only son Jamie James passed away in 2006, my feelings turned into a numbness that paralyzed me emotionally, he was a wonderful son to me, the 4th song on the album, “I Wish You Were Here” is about him and I sing it to him” says Tricia.
