Trish Lester: What's New

Plymouth Belvedere dug up in Oklahhoma - June 18, 2007

As you may have read in newspapers and on the Web, or watched on TV or YouTube, officials in Tulsa, Oklahoma, dug up 1957 Plymouth Belvedere, buried 50 years in a "time capsule."

I've sent CDs to a few radio stations in Tulsa -- hope they'll play the title track from my CD, "Plymouth Belvedere"!

If you know people in Oklahoma (or anyone interested in old or collectible cars), please pass the word along.

'Plymouth Belvedere' CD Release Story in Daily News - June 14, 2007

The LA Daily News has run a story on my CD release:

GOOD NEWS! Plymouth Belvedere will soon be here! - April 17, 2007

My debut CD, “Plymouth Belvedere,” is finally being replicated and packaged!
The album includes 13 masterfully produced songs – 11 originals plus a traditional folk tune and a John Lennon Songwriting Contest award-winner from Rain Perry (who happens to be my cousin!). The final track is a tongue-in-cheek early holiday bonus – “The Christmas Letter.”
I’m offering friends and fans an opportunity to purchase the CD at a reduced rate of $10 (the full market price will be $14.95).
You may order the old-fashioned way – by sending a check, money order or cash. PayPal would be fine, too, so if that’s of interest, please send an e-mail to, and I’ll provide details.

Folk Singer to enhance SCOPE parade float on July 4 - July 1, 2004

Local Singer/Songwriter Trish Lester has been tapped to bring her folk singing skill to the July 4 Parade entry of Santa Clarita Organization for Preserving the Environment (SCOPE). Lester will be on board, singing Joni Mitchell’s 1970 hit, “Big Yellow Taxi.”

“Trish is very talented,” said SCOPE President, Lynne Plambeck. “We’re honored to have her participate, adding a musical dimension to our float. This song fits the SCOPE mission perfectly. We hope to help local residents remember the importance and beauty of our native oaks, the Santa Clara River and all our very special plants and animals.”

While not a SCOPE member, Lester is in sympathy with the environmental movement. “Parade-goers will no doubt recognize the chorus, ‘They paved paradise and put up a parking lot,’” she said. A few years back, Lester included these very words in a letter to the editor about the impending massive development along Hwy. 126.

According to Plambeck, SCOPE float builders are busy creating a “Tree Museum,” to illustrate another lyric from the song.
