I love hearing your experiences of the music. Here's what some people have said . . . .
"Trina Brunk's music has an almost ethereal power."
~Marianne Williamson, lecturer and best-selling author
"Trina sings about love and really important stuff."
"Mom, I want to share your song with the whole world."
"Thank you, Trina for your soulful songwriting. In just one sitting, I have been comforted, inspired, understood, challenged, entertained and brought to tears...all good stuff!"
"I so enjoyed being part of your house concert. I did experience "the oneness" between everyone there. As many women stated tonight, your music is so healing — whenever I have any dis-ease in my mind or body — I KNOW that if I listen to one of your CDs — balance and peace are restored. Thank you for being the blessing that you are in my life and on the planet."
"At a recent expo, I became moved by the lovely music carrying the spirit and community of the show. The artist, Trina Brunk, has the voice of an angel; her lyrics ask us to accept our true power to honor and flow with love. Each song holds within it the potential to further our own awakening; reminding us to be aware and remain in strength. Please support this amazing Missouri artist."
"Your CD is awesomely beautiful!!! It goes right into the divine heart. Who would have guessed that your always extraordinary and angelic voice could get even more mature, but it has. Your songs are so authentically touching and inspiring."
"The songs are perfect for sitting and listening and reclaiming my own gratitude to Source. It is also wonderful to listen to one song and then go right into meditation. The songs really open me naturally to a meditative state."
"You are truly amazing! An inspiration on so many levels. I'm in awe of your ability to continue to produce such a prodigious amount of work - and of excellent quality - in the midst of your challenging situation. It makes me feel that I can perhaps do it, too . . . I was really searching my mind to find ways to help my friend . . . who is struggling with clinical depression and anxiety disorder and feeling really isolated. I found myself sharing your Born to Live in These Times CD with her and translating the tracks and as I did, I felt my own anxieties and fears dissipate (and there have been an abundance of those of late). I felt your healing work and the power of those songs unfolding in me again, as they did the first time, and I watched as [friend's name]'s face brightened up. She has been exploring your website and videos, and I think it will be a good tool for her healing - as it has already been for my own."
“I played your Peace video for a co-worker who was hurting. She began to breathe easier. I watched her burden lift. Prayer does transform - Wado.”

“We returned from our journey yesterday, and oftentimes you and your gift of music would be brought into conversation. You touch the heart of the many. Thank you again for willingness to share your gifts.”
"Trina!!!!! I just listened to the Meditation CD!!!!!! Oh my goodness, how wonderful!!! I am so happy to have met you!!!! Thank you for a blessed, blessed Sunday morning!"
“I just finished listening to your music CD I purchased yesterday. I loved it! Love your voice, the music, the lyrics, the nature sounds! I’m glad you’re getting these wonderful messages out there in a beautiful way.”
“Trina Brunk's music is pure Spirit and her songs are an offering of love and service to humanity. She has the rare gift of allowing herself to be the instrument through which music is created and sung. Trina is a treasure to our spiritual community and a great gift to the world.”
“Trina's music is truly inspiring. I find myself waking up to it in my head, and humming it in the shower. It's not just music, it's magic. It pushes me to be more, to live more, to love more, to feel more, to reach higher. Thanks Trina!”
"Love your new CD, Trina. I hope to feature some of the tracks on future episodes of the radio program. Great stuff! Well done!"
“This prayer is so beautiful that it resonates in my spirit hours after I listen to it. It's more than a song, more than a prayer, deeper than an idea or intention. Somehow the synergy of those elements come together in something holy and sacred.”
"These songs . . . reveal an earnest songwriter with a tremendous instrument – in each example, Brunk delivers soaring, stirring vocals and well-crafted, evocative melodies over gliding pianos and subtle soundscapes. Lush but gentle harmonies couch the lead, calling to mind the sounds of influences like Loreena McKennitt and Karen Drucker."
"Trina's CD is so beautiful! Her voice sounds so warm, and mature, and I feel like I'm with a really encouraging friend when she sings. Such affirmations!"
I just finished listening to your latest album [Trina's note: Born to Live in These Times], and felt the need to share with you my reaction to it.
Some background may be required here: I had just finished a deep conversation with one of my mentors, and was particularly “open” afterwards; I was feeling quite vulnerable, to say the least.
It was at that time I noticed an unopened envelope on my desk from the daily mail. And, lo and behold, inside was your new CD. When I then shortly thereafter left my office for home, I put the CD into my player to enjoy on the road. Well, after the first song I had tears welling up inside, and I was wondering what had been triggered! So, when the second song had a similar effect I was paying very close attention. Your poetic lyrics were so very relevant and moving for me. Every single piece on the CD had me crying, and feeling the impact of your songs on my opened psyche. What a gift that experience was ( and continues to be) for me. Mere words will never adequately express that moment, but just know how grateful I am for the synchronicity shared. So, THANK YOU, Friend!
Best regards always,
excerpted from a letter from Rev. Kristin of UnityCenter of Columbia
"Trina has just finished her third cd and I want to share with you a little about who she is. Trina has shared with us many songs that have brought the congregation to tears, to a standing ovation, or simply to a quiet, collective, reflective pause. You know the kind when you have just received a good dose of spiritual food? . . . What makes her music stand out to me is that she plays and sings in service to Spirit and breathes the Presence through her songs. You are sure to experience a unique and soul-filled musical gift when you truly hear Trina."
