R&B singer and songwriter Tracie was born to write, sing, and perform. Brought to you by way of a small Pennsylvania town called Pittston, she knew she had a knack for music early on. By the time she was seven years old, she had began learning Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey songs and recorded herself singing those songs on her double cassette karaoke machine. Tracie’s first performances for middle school talent shows left audiences captivated. Influenced heavily by vocalists ranging from Aretha Franklin & Patti LaBelle to Whitney Houston, Aaliyah, Mary J. Blige, Alicia Keys & Destiny's Child, Tracie was dedicating more time to writing her own material by high school. Shortly after, she was approached about recording some original music.
After spending the next several years clobbering local karaoke nights & showcases and working with various independent record labels and musicians, she was able to learn some of the ups and downs of the music industry. Years of work to this point had only yielded a handful of recordings and no cohesive project. At this time, Tracie was introduced to Track Masons via Hip-Hop recording artist Rukus. The two collaborated on the love-gone-wrong anthem “Heart Full Of Cracks,” which would be featured on Rukus’ debut album. Efforts for Tracie’s debut LP began but were halted by her deployment to Iraq courtesy of the US Army.
Fresh off of an eleven month tour in Iraq, the soldier-songstress was ready to get back to work. The time spent away from her family and friends provided inspiration for new material including her up-tempo club-friendly single “One Thing.” Since her return, Tracie has been seen performing on stages across Pennsylvania promoting her upcoming LP which is scheduled for release sometime in 2013. Her two lead singles, “One Thing” and the soulful, inspiring “Remain True,” can now be heard and downloaded from the web. Armed with strong vocals, well-formed song writing abilities, and an intense passion, Tracie is ready to be heard!
