Justin Tracy grew up in north London and started his musical career making his first professional recording as a drummer at age 13. A decade later, he moved to New York and formed the Justin Tracy Group as the lead vocalist and drummer, making appearances in Europe playing in Nice, Northsea, and Montreaux Jazz festivals, sharing the stage with such luminaries as Jimmy Cliff, Earth, Wind & Fire, and James Brown. When he returned from the tour, he taught himself guitar and began work on his first solo record, "Understanding" (2005), produced with Grammy Award-winner Michael Leonhart. He followed up with "Suffolk Sessions," (2007) recorded in the UK. Justin continues to perform live, produces his own records, and works with emerging artists. Justin also studies Indian Classical music, and during his trip to Bangladesh in January 2011, he collaborated with tabla maestro Nilesh Jadhav and recorded "Bangla Motor."
