An accomplished multi-instrumentalist and compelling singer/songwriter, Tracy earned nominations by the Madison Area Music Awards for both BEST ACOUSTIC ALBUM (for Second Wind in 2004 and for Quietly There in 2005) and for BEST ACOUSTIC ARTIST (solo in 2004 and with trio Sticky Fingers in 2005).

Her original music includes vocal as well as instrumental guitar and piano works, and is subtly influenced by a varied background that includes everything from classical to pop/rock to folk to show tunes to choral music and many things in between...even a touch of blues/jazz.

Tracy's music has been featured on MTV's reality show "MADE" show and is being heard on radio (FM, AM, Satellite, and Internet) in the U.S., Canada, England, Ireland, Australia, Germany, and Japan. She has released three solo recordings (two full-length albums and one EP) and a live concert video, plus a full-length album with the folk trio Sticky Fingers.

"[Second Wind is] soothing and expertly produced, without a wrong note in the thing..." - Matt Pierce,
Splendid E-zine

"[On Second Wind] Tracy shows off a deft touch on the guitar and good use of cello, hammered dulcimer and various percussion instruments, [though] her voice may be the best instrument, always well-toned and showing a nice melisma that isn't overused."
- B-Section Newsletter (Madison Songwriters Group)

"...Comer is already showing signs of future success as a multi-flavored contemporary acoustic artist."
- Mad Folk News, Newsletter of the Madison Folk Music Society, July 2004

"Comer's thoughtful, intelligent, and sometimes humorous songs, coupled with her clear, honest voice and heartfelt presentation, are a delight to the ears and offer a refreshing and satisfying musical alternative."
- Clayton (NC) News Star, August 2002

"Tracy's voice is warm, rich...she's a polished performer...."
- Jonathan Overby, Host of Higher Ground (Wisconsin Public Radio)

"The voice, a combination of Joni Mitchell and Judy Collins, is perfect, and the guitar playing is so rhythmic and clear and musical...the lyrics [are] poignant, poetic, imaginative, expressive..."
- Robert Kennison, NYC
