Release Paw-ty February 2017 at Wavelength Salon.

 Tales of  Therapy Dog  Book 
Press Release: Trish Herrera and Angel, Houston's Official Therapy Dog, Book launch of "Angel: Tales of a Therapy Dog." Angel was designated as Houston's official therapy dog by former Mayor of Houston, Annise Parker, which continues under Mayor Sylvester Turner. 

Angel's book is written to inspire children of all ages through the power of reading while teaching many lessons, including one of acceptance of others' differences and disabilities -- Angel was born with only one eye and three legs. Her work as a therapy dog fosters and extends unconditional love to individuals who are recovering and healing in hospitals or who simply need a loving visit from a fuzzy friend, such as our elderly in nursing homes. Angel's story touches all of these individuals and brings hope to all that you can make a positive impact in your community regardless of your limitations.

Recording Peace Anthem Easter at Sugar Hill Studios with Dan Workman

For over 40 years, Mydolls has created and inspired art in the true spirit of the punk rock ethos: do it yourself and be yourself. These post-punk pioneers have been making relevant, timeless songs that inspire us to rise above and resist hate.
Mydolls is an experimental art-punk band which formed in 1978 in Houston. The lineup consists of Trish Herrera (guitars and vocals), Dianna Ray (bass and vocals), Linda Younger (guitar and vocals) and George Reyes (drums and vocals). One of Houston’s earliest punk bands, Mydolls created a D.I.Y. sound that is as ethereal, fluid and poetic as it is politically charged and feminist. As influencers in Houston’s contemporary art history, these pioneering musicians have paved a path for women and minorities in the music and arts scenes.
During the 1980s, Mydolls recorded several albums including the 12″ EP Speak Softly and Carry a Big Stick on the indepdent, Houston-based label C.I.A. Records. Mydolls was featured on the iconic Seattle label Sub Pop’s #7 compilation cassette released in 1982 showcasing a diverse lineup of underground new wave artists. While in London, John Peel interviewed Linda about the Texas punk scene on BBC Radio and debuted Mydolls’ first 45 record, In Technicolor (CIA, 1980), to an international audience. Mydolls’ music also had an impact on internationally acclaimed filmmaker Wim Wenders, who cast the band in a cameo role performing the song “A World of Her Own” in the Cannes award-winning film PARIS, TEXAS (1984). In 2007, Mydolls’ anthology CD, A World of Her Own, was released by the label Grand Theft Audio. Houston Press inducted Mydolls into their inaugural Music Hall of Fame in 2013.
Mydolls and the Houston punk scene were the focus of a 20HERTZ music-based lecture, performance and archive display at Contemporary Arts Museum Houston in 2016, and the SPEAKEASY experimental music and art program series at Lawndale Art Center in 2017, where they released a collectible edition of It’s Too Hot for Revolution. In February 2018, Mydolls released their latest single, “Easter,” as a political anthem to resist the hateful rhetoric and actions of the current administration.

Mydolls (1978-present) is an American post-punk band from Houston whose relevant, timeless songs have inspired us to rise above and resist hate. The women-led group has been recognized by art institutions, such as Contemporary Art Museum Houston and Lawndale Art Center, and the Houston Press Music Hall of Fame for its 40-year advocacy of equality, female empowerment, and minority representation in the arts. Mydolls’ music was introduced to international audiences during an interview with John Peel on BBC Radio and during a cameo role in Wim Wenders’ classic, award-winning film PARIS, TEXAS (1984). As one of Houston’s earliest punk bands, Mydolls has created a D.I.Y. sound that is as ethereal, fluid and poetic as it is politically charged and feminist. For over 40 years, Mydolls has performed in the true spirit of the punk rock ethos: do it yourself and be yourself.

In 1984, Kit and Carl Detering donated a 1967 Ford Station Wagon to the Orange ShowFoundation to be auctioned at their annual gala. With a budget of $800 for paint and plastic fruit, artist Jackie Harris transformed the car into a mobile work of art and called it “The Fruitmobile.” A group purchased the car at auction and donated it back to The Orange Show Foundation. That same year, Ann Harithas curated an exhibition called “Collision” at Lawndale Art Center that featured several spectacular art cars. Art cars began to be seen on the streets of Houston. In 1986, as part of New Music America, the artist Tom Cora led the Rice MOB in an artists parade organized by Trish Herrera and Rachel Hecker that ended at the opening event of the Cullen Sculpture Garden at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Also in 1986, The Orange Show Foundation organized “The Road Show” a two day exhibit of Art Cars that included workshops and displays of local art cars and low-riders. Two years later, The Orange Show Foundation agreed to organize a parade focused on the art car for the Houston International Festival and the Houston Art Car Parade was born.

From 2001-2009 I immersed myself in rescuing Golden Retrievers.
I, with some of the members of Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue, founded Golden Retriever Rescue of Houston in 2002. My work has been rescuing and rehabilitating dogs. At this time I have raised a special needs puppy, Angel, who is the most amazing miracle in my life. Angel is a certified Therapy dog with Faithful Paws Therapy and has five AKC titles.
I volunteer at Golden Beginnings Golden Retriever Rescue.
I am also involved in Girl's Rock Camp Houston as a guitar and vocal teacher. 
My interests lie in writing, film, hair, music, fashion, art, dogs, travel, architecture, photography and love in all its glory.
Being yourself is always in fashion.
Thank you,
Trish Herrera
