“Vocalist Tracy Niles is the daughter of the late great Jazz DJ/Program Host Chuck Niles of KJAZZ 88.1FM former KLON. Many smiling faces were evident as Tracy exudes joy while performing for an appreciative crowd. “Black Heart Blues,” “Waterside,” “Change Your World” were several originals tunes by Tracy. Ace guitarist Chuck Alvarez wrote the song “Love is Good” and added some scorching guitar riffs to complement their set.”

“Tracy Niles is a young energetic local talent who has that certain flair onstage. She is having fun and you could see she was enjoying the evening as much as we were... there is a certain jazz sensibility that shows up in her songwriting and singing style. And then, in mid song, as she sings about smoke, you hear the chords to “Smoke on the Water” and you know this girl is well rounded musically....She wowed the audience and received the type of applause normally reserved for the main act. I can’t wait to hear more from her.”

““For Niles, performing live is the ultimate experience. She makes sure every show is special ….the talented newcomer released “Breaking The Silence’”. It even caught the attention of radio station SETS 102.1, which gave the song “Movin’ On” some airplay.”

““Tracy Niles is basically a blues singer, but not in the torch-singer tradition. She adds rock, with touches of soul and jazz, plus accompanies herself on acoustic guitar. The result is a hybrid that is all her own.” ”
