As stated in the Western Horseman, "Music and storytelling are as much a part of working on a ranch as a saddle is to riding horses. Trinity Seely embraces the oral traditions of the cowboy life and offers a musical window into her life as a cowgirl and ranch wife." -Jennifer Denison
Trinity Shares with us in "He Rides for the Brand" what it is about the cowboy life that gets us by the heartstrings so we never want to leave. And as one of her fans stated, "A lot of people sing from the heart, Trinity sings With her heart."
"Her style of music is a blend of Western, Folk and traditional Country. her voice and songs are reminiscent of the timeless Suzy Boggus, especially in "A Cowboy Song"-Jennifer Denison
Trinity loves the life that she has been blessed to live. She is the mother of four children, ranging from 21 to 9. She not only puts her heart and soul into being a wonderful mother and wife, but into every performance she gives.
Rick Huff with the Western Way stated, “Trinity grew up in the genuine western life and tradition, so she knows whereof she sings....and writes...and does both very well.”
Trinity Currently resides in Ojai, Ca where she is the Director of the Horse Program at The Thacher School. Teaching and managing over 100 horses and students at her Alma Mater. She stated;
“Horses and music just kinda go together; feel, timing, and a whole lot of balance.
I work with my husband at The Thacher School in Ojai, CA. I am the Director of The Horse Program that was founded 130 years ago with the belief that the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a kid. This statement still rings true today and holds a critical place in time, now more than ever. We have spent the majority of our married life working on cattle ranches across the west while raising our four kids. I'm here to tell ya that California is not Montana, but the simple values of a life worth living are still the same. While we are not pushing cows at the moment, the opportunity to work with the youth of the future and good horses is the most meaningful work we could do, and we love it.
In some ways, I'm still doing what I set out to do in 2011 with my music, to help perpetuate and promote the western lifestyle. With the horse as my conduit to the music in my soul, I write and share what is in the ranch wife's heart.”
