Michael Tracy / Press

"These guys put on a great show that will fill your ears with some of the best rock n' roll you've ever heard"

"Michael Tracy promises music that you can grab hold of. Tracy seeks to gather influences as a touchstone for music that's not necessarily Americana, just very American."

"Michael Tracy is a country fried rocker with a southern soul, and a songwriting machine with phenomenal talent"

"Singer-songwriter Tracy takes his cues from abundant influences: Rock ’n’ roll, blues, ’70s hard rock, country, Southern rock, even grunge are bundled together, fed into his personal psyche, reorganized with his perception, message and experience to be delivered with his own unique sound and scope. All this goes into the depth and poetic passion delivered by the Michael Tracy Band."

"Michael Tracy...putting on a great show is nothing new to him. Tracy has been spreading his bluesy style of rock with hints of country and southern rock all around the state of North Carolina... he isn't slowing down anytime soon"

“Like so many of our fellow indie/grassroots artists at our site, blues/rock artist, Michael Tracy knows just how tough the music industry is. Nonetheless, Michael remains "Hopeful" as he pours all of his time and energy into his music with the belief that with a lot of hard work, smart decisions, and a little bit of luck or Divine Intervention, it will happen.”

“It’s not often that I find a new blues-influenced guitar-rock artist that I find worthy of a second listen. With the market being saturated by Johnny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and classic artists like George Thorogood and Stevie Ray Vaughan, I thought I had heard all I had needed to hear of this genre…until now. Enough Small Talk is the impressive debut album from Charlotte, NC songwriter, guitarist and vocalist,Michael Tracy, and while the influences I mentioned are all here, Tracy also invokes some 60s and 70s-rock acts like The Stones, Beatles, Doors and Bad Company, and even some 90s grunge, ala Stone Temple Pilots or Alice In Chains. What results is a modern day blues-rock hybrid that is purely Michael Tracy. From the opening aggressive vocal line of “I Hear You Knockin’” to the final melodic strains of the stripped-down “But One,” Tracy’s powerful, whiskey-soaked vocal style wraps itself around thoughtful lyrics and guitar-hero-like riffs to create a stellar expe”
