Trinidadian-American electro-opera singer-songwriter Trish Hosein, aka Trishes, has been writing and performing songs since she was a child. She was seven when her family relocated from Trinidad to the U.S., arriving in San Diego a few years later and attending local Canyon Crest Academy before studying at Berklee College of Music. She honed her craft at Berklee College of Music, where she graduated with a degree in Songwriting and Music Business in 2011.

“My live show is a one-woman act of sorts,” says Hosein. “It includes beat-boxing, vocal looping and effects, and keyboard synth hooks that showcase indie-pop tunes. I think these layers fill a lot of sonic space that you aren’t used to hearing a single person do by themselves. It’s a little shocking to people to hear all this noise coming from this tiny girl. And, to be honest, that’s quite empowering.”

Hosein's voice is the skeleton that carries her songwriting. Fleshed out by hip-hop beats and pop hooks, her music walks the tightrope between artistry and accessibility. She has toured the U.S. extensively, playing showcases at Austin's South By Southwest festival, and acting as a vocal DJ for celebrity parties and fashion shows.

In 2014, Hosein launched a campaign of audio and visual media as Trishes, a nod to her many voices and personalities. Her single "Swimming Pool" was released that April.

Her Ego EP debuted in early 2019. "Ego is the first of three releases that describe the struggle between parts of oneself, each named after Freud's constructs of self," she says.

Her background as an immigrant led to working on campaigns for Crooked Media and the Progressive Turnout Project, as well as performing and volunteering with the Bernie Sanders campaign in 2020. Hosein has also written political pieces for Talkhouse, Brown Girl Magazine, and Valley Doll Magazine.

Her album The Id, released in October 2021, examines subjects with personal relevance to her such as racism and the dangers of social media. “I believe that all societal and global conflict begins from individual internal turmoil, and that examining those inner struggles is an essential part of affecting change.”

The album was preceded by singles for "Venom" (featured on Spotify's Editorial Playlist "Equal US") and "Big Sunglasses" (with a video featured on Billboard, VH1 India, and AXS TV). "Venom" concerns the discrimination she experienced growing up as a brown girl in America, and she says “Big Sunglasses” "connects the dots between war paint and social media, and observes how they both give us anonymity that can bring out the worst in us."

Co-produced by Hosein and Hakan Mavruk, the album was released with ten original art pieces in her signature Sharpie stippling style. Cinematic music videos were shot in Los Angeles, Salt Lake City, and Nabi Musa.

Her music has been featured on NPR, MTV India, and VH1 India; and she has performed festivals like SXSW, CMW, Women’s Redrock Festival, Tune In Tel Aviv, Linda Perry’s Rock N Relief, Pyramid Yoga Festival, and more. Her visual art appeared as part of Adidas “Nite Jogger” campaign, and she was nominated for Best Music Video at the South Asian Film Festival two years in a row, including one nomination for her directorial debut on her music video “Gaslight.”
