John Tracy has a reputation for crafting lyrics that cut right to the heart of the matter, making his authentic music relevant to all of us on this human journey. Inspired by his folk, blues and acoustic rock influences, his soulful and inspirational songs fortify the human connection – truly REAL MUSIC for REAL LIFE.

He is a national charting artist having two singles from his latest album “Happy Ever After” reach the top 10 on the US FMQB AC Charts. Both singles were included in the United Kingdom’s “Brit Rock Show,” syndicated to 81 UK radio stations as well as five other syndicated shows across the UK and Europe. John’s music videos have attracted attention from all over the music video programming spectrum, including video on-demand, multi-market, retail pool/content providers and internet programmers, being shown in prominent retailers, nightclubs and restaurants in the US and Canada.

Al Kniola of 88.1 WVPE Public Radio, Elkhart, IN said of his latest album: “John Tracy’s new CD is an excellent album in all respects – songs, recording quality, production, vocals, talent – you name it.”

It is clear that John Tracy is an artist who offers a perspective in his songwriting that is different than most. His raw, authentic songs connect emotions with the soul and quickly become the soundtrack of our lives. He has studied the craft of songwriting with some of the industry’s best including Don Henry, Ellis Paul and Steve Seskin. Laying his soul bear and openly sharing his experiences, he has earned the reputation as a lyricist who cuts right to the heart of the matter, giving us a musical experience beyond the mere listening with each word and note.

“John Tracy’s genius in delivering lyrical melodies of all things that we experience as humans may only be surpassed by his mastery of the guitar. John will tell you he loves writing songs, but his music tells you that he loves the human connection.” – Jeff Curtis, Executive Director, The Orange Downtown Alliance (Orange, VA)

His dedicated effort to giving each song something sonically unique makes listening to his body of work a delight to the ears. With a vocal delivery smooth and warm, John’s voice has a timbre that calms the spirit and allows the heart to hear the depth of his lyrics. Having shared his music on an international level at events across the US and Europe, he is a seasoned performer. His shows leave you inspired, like time spent with an old friend.

Jon Stein of WTBQ – Hootenanny Café, Goshen, NY said: “There are songs and CDs that capture my attention and there are CDs that capture my attention and captivate my heart and soul. John Tracy’s CDs and songs do just that. From the moment I started listening, I was hooked. I am still captivated. John Tracy knows how to write songs and melodies that draw the listener in.”
