Drawing on the experiences of life, the trials as well as the triumphs, Trudy's songs convey powerful messages. "Many of the songs come from the difficult time in my life, and the lives of family and friends. It was particularly difficult to watch as my five year old nephew went through chemotherapy. I couldn't do anything to help him. My perspective really changed. I came to know how important it is to rely on our Heavenly Father and Christ." In his 17 year career, award winning producer/arranger Greg Hansen has worked closely with nearly all the major LDS artists. Greg compares Trudy's writing to LDS notables Michael McLean and Hilary Weeks. "Like Michael, Trudy has the ability to paint a very human, very true to life picture; to reach beyond the surface to sometimes forgotten or hidden emotions. Her music will move you."
