Tracy Chamberlain's Story
"I grew up in a small part of North East Philly. I have always dreamed of following my Grandfather's footsteps to be a country singer."
Tracy was raised by her Grandfather in Homeburgs, PA. He became her biggest inspiration and reason for working so hard to become a singer. Her Grandfather (Slim Chamberlain) was a guitarist/vocalist for a country bluegrass style band. When Tracy was 10 years old, he pushed her to pick up guitar and taught her a few chords. From that very moment music became a way of life. In 2005, when Tracy was 15 years old her Grandfather became very ill. He encouraged her to pursue her dream, no matter the cost.
Tracy continued to work at singing and guitar. She sang at the sunday church service at St. Dominic's, which opened up her love for being on stage. She was in a number of Choirs in high school. She was also chosen for a small selected group called Chanticleers and District Chorus. Singing wasn't all she decided to do with her talent, Tracy also has been in a handful of production plays and musicals with a group called Summer Stock.
Currently, Tracy is playing with two different bands "Playing with Fire" and "Renegade". She is working with Nashville Songwriters to complete the rest of her songs and will be recording in late 2014, with hopes of her CD coming out in 2015. She is playing out at least 4-5 times a month and still manages to personally write to every new fan, and the musicians she meets.
"Its my biggest dream to one day be able to make my Grandfather proud of who I turned out to be. Ever since I lost him, I have been on a mission to make music from the heart and let people hear my stories and know where I came from and just how great my Grandfather was as a person. The song I wrote "Red Valley Road" is actually a song about my grandfather which is why I choose to center my first album around him." -Tracy
