About

Tracy K worked the music scene in Toronto as a live and session vocalist, harmonica player and percussionist. She recorded her first album at Private Ear in Winnipeg in the year 2000. For years thereafter Tracy K was a mainstay on the blues and jazz circuit. Her busy performance and touring schedule was studded with festival mainstage gigs. Tracy K is no stranger to the Canadian blues scene. She was the first female featured at the Toronto Blues Society's Harmonica Workshop, and she performed at their prestigious Women's Blues Revue. Tracy K picked up festival and Women in Blues dates in the northern United States as well. She wrote a song for the Hollywood movie 'Scared Silent' and performed it in the movie. All of this pre-facebook! For the next decade she lived in Thunder Bay raising her three kids. She kept busy with local gigs, co-wrote a song for CBC’s 'Canada Reads, Ontario Rocks' and recorded two more albums in the Northwestern Ontario hub. They proved lucrative and spawned several tours, awards, and great reviews internationally. As band or duo she played everything from house concerts to theatres. She was invited to perform at special events and showcases, from Canada to the Caribbean, Manitoba to Memphis. Tracy K is back in Manitoba and has released her fourth album in September 2016 - five years after her duo release, and nearly ten years since a full band release! Ironically it’s called "What’s the Rush?". It hit number one on Canadian radio charts and continued charting months after the release. Twenty years, hundreds of gigs, four albums, nine awards, some cool highlights and name-dropping, Tracy K feels like she’s right where she oughta be. Most recently Tracy K toured festival and event dates over the summer and fall in the United States with her band. Her Folk-Blues Duo embarks on a Home Routes House Concert tour in February 2018. Tracy K’s incredible performing still rules the stage and her harmonica skills have only gotten better over the years. Her voice hasn’t changed - it’s still the rootsy, raspy wonder that it is. Tracy K is available as a band, duo or pretty much anything. She’s experienced at singing both Canadian and American anthems, working with orchestras and film crews, voice-overs and jingles, harmony sessions, and acting (no more Janis Joplin tribute offers please!).
