Tracy recently recorded her debut EP ‘Life As I Knew It’, and it is set to be released on the 15th November 2019.
“Tracy writes with a musical intelligence and mellifluous touch. She delivers her songs with a dream-like vocal quality, reminiscent of Carla Bruni, while her smart lyrics cut straight to the heart of the matter.” – Nicky Schrire, Vocalist & Composer
