ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/Songwriter, Tracy Marie’s latest release, TRUE BLUE, honors her Cleveland Roots.

Tracy Marie's 4th album pays tribute to city of Cleveland as being her only home. The album is a retrospect compilation of unreleased songs recorded live or in the studio over the last 14 years. The Bluesy, 10-track release was locally recorded with some of the area’s hottest working musicians including all 3 members of The Bad Boys of Blues, Mike Barrick, Michael Bay and Jim Wall; Mike Barrick, also being bassist in the Armstrong Bearcat band. Guitarists: Jason Green (Jimmy Lay, Coalhouse Walker, Big Jack Johnson), Curtis Leonard (Buddy Miles Express, Playroom Recording) and Drummer, Ben Schigel (Switched, Some Kind of Wonderful, Spider Studios) also performed on the project in addition to Maurice Stanley appearing on Piano.

Marie wrote all but one song, which was written by local songwriter, Gary Hoopengardner Sr. The track for “I’m Sorry” was lifted from a 2003 appearance on WCPN from “Live Around Noon” with Dee Perry (licensed by Ideastream™). The album opener, a funky danceable song called “Real Good Time”, was co-written with Bassist Mike Barrick who also plays trumpet on the track. Some of the other tracks include: “The Hard Road”, a blues song recorded in 2000 explaining the hard times in hopes of something better, and a more recent recording, the swingy blues number, “Cleveland Bound” proclaiming there’s no better place to be, was recorded earlier this year with just a bass and a vocal.

The artwork features a series of photographs including a beautiful shot of Downtown Cleveland at Dusk from Edgewater Park by Jeff Stephens (At Land’s End Photography). The cover without a name or title, is a photograph by Jesse Kramer of Tracy Marie peering out a large window. The inside pocket features a photograph of the road and sky taken by Singer/Songwriter, Taylor Lamborn,. The progression of photos ends at the rear panel, with a photo of the water and a beautiful sun set sky from Jones Park in Gulfport, Mississippi by Dawn Petrovich.

Tracy Marie has performed her music at some very prestigious venues including, The Ryman Auditorium. She has shared the stage with the legendary Robert Lockwood, Stanley Jordan, Buddy Miles and more. Tracy Marie has written more than 100 songs, and she has produced or recorded several other Cleveland artists including Anitakeys and J Scott Franklin.
