About Tracy Marie...
Tracy Marie may be described as little because of her height at 4'9", however her large voice, extensive song catalog and her versatility as an artist can be described as anything but.
If you ask Tracy to describe her music, her answer will be as elusive as her next move. Her variety of original music is something you may think you've heard before, even when it's the first time. Each song has it's own personality. "Marry Me Willie" is made to sound like a Willie Nelson Song, while her original song, "Beautiful Again" is a contemporary ballad, and newer songs like "A Dark Place" resonate her rock and roll side. Her traditional blues shuffle, "A Hard Road" or the standard 50's sounding ballad, "Say Goodbye" rounds out a folky, rootsy, bluesy pop jam style. Just listen to it! It sounds just like Tracy Marie.
Tracy does her own thing, and she doesn't let anything stop her.
In 2017, Tracy learned that years of under-diagnosed bone deformities and skeletal dysplasia was caused by Morquio Syndrome, a very rare progressive life-long disease marked by cellular damage due to a missing enzyme. Despite her physical challenges from childhood, she managed to launch a career in music and recording arts.
Before attending the Recording Arts and Technology program at The Tommy LiPuma Center for Creative Arts in Cleveland, she had already recorded 3 albums and travelled around the country from LA to New York City with her guitar, singing her original compositions early on at places like the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville and sitting in on performances with the likes of Jazz Legend, Stanley Jordon in New York City or the legendary, Buddy Miles at the Asbury Park's famed Stone Pony.
After honing her skills as a sound engineer, Tracy Marie began to record more of her original material and as well as producing full-length albums for other Cleveland Artists like J Scott Franklin's "Pretty Things That Grow" and "2012" by Anita Keys.
Tracy Marie is a warrior who has not let her mobility issues keep her down or stop her from forging ahead in an unforgiving industry. In addition to her artistic endeavors, she has become a community leader for those with disabilities and rare diseases. She has volunteered to serve her local government as co-chair of the Lakewood Community Relations Advisory Commission and at her local hospital as co-chair of the MetroHealth Patient Family Advisory Committee. In 2021 Tracy Marie was invited to bring her advocacy work to the organization, RAMPD (Recording Artists and Music Professionals with Disabilities) to further her advocacy efforts on the national level.
