Hire Me, Bio

Tricia Fox Ransom is a singer-songwriter and thought leader on lyrics and well-being. With a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from The University of Pennsylvania and a B.A. in Music from Naropa University, Tricia has studied music and lyrics' ability to create a safe place that softens the human experience. Her capstone “Message In The Music: Do Lyrics influence well-being?” has been downloaded 100k times across the world. 

 

Beyond her academic experiences, she has seen this alchemy play out in person while working with children in cancer treatment and end of life care as a facilitated songwriter at Purple Songs Can Fly. And again with children and teens in drug and alcohol recovery, juvenile detention centers, and with elders in assisted living as a program developer and director at Music Doing Good. 

 

She applied this knowledge when she wrote her album, “The Gathering,” in response to her experience of becoming a mother. While many can relate to feelings of loss, identity change, awe, and other extremes in the human experience, “The Gathering” follows her journey into motherhood, postpartum depression, and emotions like awe, grief, meaning, and purpose. With this album, Tricia hopes that her experience can help mothers feel seen, held, and loved.

 

Tricia was born in Aberdeen, Scotland and raised in Dubai, Texas, and Alaska. She currently lives in Austin, Texas with her husband and their two children.
