"Welcome To The Party" was a real event .... all of the tracks on our "Something Good" cd were inspired by something that actually happened. Welcome To The Party is one track that happens to be on my mind at this moment. Here's how it went down. Trish reached a milestone in her life. So we decided to celebrate by throwing the mother of all parties...well it wasn't our intent to throw the mother of all parties, that's just how it happened. To be honest with you, at first I didn't want to throw the party.... too much money. Trish was determine, so I reluctantly gave in. Anyway it ended up being a fab affair. We spent the money and invited all of the beautiful people we could think of. There were no barriers... ages eight to eighty, etc., etc., etc, hope you're getting the picture. There was a moment during the party we sort of stopped and took a mental picture of what was going on.... all these beautiful people, inside and out, children running around , the elderly laid back, chill'n, it were as if the so called generation gap didn't exist... not a single A-hole in attendance on that day. But then again what else should we have expected, we have a tendency to surround ourselves with beautiful people. And if all that had transpired weren't enough Trish climaxed the evening with a mini-concert. As one person said it best "It wasn't just a party it was an event and a production". We had so much fun that day and evening. People still talk'n....Thus the track "Welcome To The Party" was born. For real ya'll.

The Passing of Trish M. Jackson-Chappell(akaTrish)

Yes, it was three years ago Trish was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer (GBM) and one and a half years since her transition. On May 11,2016  she lost a fierce battle with the disease. Having her by my side in so many battles I knew she was fearless, but the class, humor and bravery she displayed during her time of illness blew me away. It’s been a very difficult period for our family. Our time together in life and especially her last year and a half was so precious. There will be memories forever. You see Trish was many things to many.  She was sunshine, a comedian, always laughing and always looking up. To me she was my very best friend, my wife, business associate, the Trish in TN’T(Trish N’ Tom), my partner at tritommusic.com. Trish was a daughter, sister to her siblings, an aunt to her many nieces and nephews, a niece to her aunts and uncles, a  godmother, a daughter-in law, sister-in-law. Trish was a friend and confidant to others. She was a super talented vocalist, oh and I never knew anyone who could out dance her. She was an asset to the community we live in, faithful to God and the church she attended. The list goes on forever. Yes, Trish was a superstar as one half of TN’T(Trish N’ Tom), but she was also a superstar in life. It was a privilege and honor to have been her primary caregiver. This is truly a loss that is not easy to recover from. However, I’m so thankful to have had her in my life even if for just a season. I find comfort in knowing that her time on earth was well spent. She touched the lives of everyone she crossed paths with. Trish made all of us feel special.

We have begun to move forward, live, enjoy and love life as Trish would have wanted. No one loved life as she did. TN’T will continue to write and record great music and do so in memory of one of its founding members Patricia Marie Jackson-Chappell (aka Trish). We are currently recording new music for 2018 and have just finished shooting a new video for our song “Pray”. In addition, we are working with director Joseph H. James Jr., along with composers Gil Small, Robin Small, Randy Wilson, Martin Caba and Monet Dunham on a Broadway bound musical. Hopefully we’ll see you at some live shows in the future. We encourage you to visit us at www.tritommusic.com, though there will be changes there are plenty of memories. As always feel free to holla.

Trish has gone to heaven to be one of Gods greatest singing angels. Her spirit shall forever live. However, we’re not done, the headline reads “To Be Continued”.

light, laugh, and love
