ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Tracy Beck is a soulful and poetic singer/songwriter making her mark on the folk music scene. Combining her lyrics with melodic melodies and soulful harmonica is a winning recipe for folk music fans to come.
Her musical style ranges from blues and folk to country and swing and touches on many aspects of American music in between.

"Let the wind carry me into the sun as an eagle soars over the horizon," is a poem evolving from Tracy's four album releases as a recording artist. Her music lures you into reflective story telling that is fueled by longing for love, yearning for the West, in search of passion and self discovery.

Tracy is able to evoke that free spirit in her music that John Denver was famous for. Many of her songs reflect her love of the outdoors, and the mountains she fell in love with while living out west and spending time in Montana. The Milwaukee Journal stated in an earlier press release, that her album, "Let The Wind Carry Me," is reminiscent of John Denver's, "Poems, Prayers and Promises." Her release "As an Eagle Soars," combines pop country, folk, Americana and blues. Melodies of her soulful harmonica accompany her on songs of the moon. At times you might want to roll down your windows and drive. At other times you might find yourself quiet, lured into her reflective storytelling and melodic melodies.

Her music journey began in the fourth grade when she was given a recorder. She chose the saxophone for its soulfulness. Her love of poetry and music led her to the acoustic guitar. Tracy has played a variety of venues; festivals such as Bastille Days and Summerfest in Milwaukee, county fairs, small intimate cafe's such as Side Walk Cafe in New York to Cafe Lena in Saratoga Springs. She presently resides in the beautiful town of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin where she continues to perform at intimate venues in the surrounding areas of southeatern Wisconsin.

Unpredictability is an essential part of Tracy's music. What sets her music compositions apart is her eclectic style. Her unique vocals combined with infectious hook lines and ever-changing musical moods will keep you engaged. This is evident in her album, "Into the Sun." She dabbles in a variety of colors and textures in her vocal approach, delivering a rough edge, or a soft vocal touch. It is also evident at her shows. She has mastered the art performing live from years of just simply performing in front of an audience. A unique performer and singer/songwriter, among the many other independent talents that are becoming a dying breed.

Her new release, "Over the Horizon," is full of infectious hook lines, harmonies, reflective storytelling and a diversity of tempos and moods. The album will take you on a journey from beginning to end. Please don't forget to go on Facebook and “LIKE” me!

Some of Tracy's influences over the years have been Joni Mitchell, Edie Brickell, Lucinda Williams, Bonnie Rait, Van Morrison, Alison Krauss, Eva Cassidy, Gillian Welch, The Eagles, John Denver, , Bob Seger, Johnny CashCash, and Rickie Lee Jones.

A Hot plate!!!
" Let The Wind Carry Me " in 2002 , "Into The Sun" from 2005 and "As An Eagle Soars " from 2008 were the three previous records of country and folk music-playing singer and songwriter Tracy Beck from Lake Geneva in the U.S. state Wisconsin.

With her latest album " Over The Horizon " at the very end, you can create a nice -sounding phrase based on the titles of all of its records : " Let the wind carry me into the sun , as an eagle soars over the horizon ." You need something like that can only think of Fun

With eleven new songs and a nice bonus track " Rain" Tracy Beck again delivers a handsome plate of which is full of narrative songs about love , passion and desire . The video in this review, you can hear short clips of each track on the album . What is striking about these numbers is the large degree of positivism in the poetic lyrics . It starts immediately with the first song " Beautiful Love " .

For the musical influences of Tracy Beck , we do not have to look very far because you hear here and there traces of the work of female singer- songwriters like Joni Mitchell , Eva Cassidy , Gillian Welch , Mary Chapin Carpenter and Alison Krauss . She does it often with musical accompaniment only her acoustic guitar as the songs " Quiet Day " , " Sun & Moon " , " Winter Moon " or closing song " Fall Is Here Again " .

" Silver & Gold " brings Tracy Beck with some help on mandolin Mike Stone. Some more instrumentation of violins ( Mike Campbell ) , bass ( Steve Crucianelli ) and percussion ( Darnell Ellis ) is in " Sunsets " , the beautiful ballad " Remember When " , the atmospheric "On Maclean Road" and " Same Old Road " .

" Over The Horizon " is a hot plate to be recommended for the romantics among our readers , listeners can cozy dream when listening to these songs and poems conceived by Tracy Beck .
