Album Notes
This British Folk-Rock, singer,writer and multi-instrumentalist collaborates with Grammy Award winning producer Michael Leonhart for this Independent Debut Album release.
Taking almost four years to complete, this record has been described as a true work of art.
The textures and arrangements in the music are organic and, giving it a timeless sound and focusing on the voice and words of this extraordinary Artist.

Acoustic Guitar and vocals play the dominant role in the music
and although Justin plays a variety of instruments including Drums, Acoutic Bass and Banjo and Organ on the record, there are other great musicians featured also including: Michael Leonhart (of steely Dan and Lenny Kravitz), Ben Street (Shawn Colvin), Graham Hawthorne (Paul Simon, David Byrne), and Kenny Wollesen (Tom Waits, Norah Jones) to mention a few.

This record marks the beginning of a journey, and we know that once you discover his music you will want to come along for the ride.

Tina Shafer/THe NEw York Songwriter's Cirlce

Deep, beautiful arrangements, great songs, great poetry
Having run the New York Songwriter's Circle for 13 years, I get to see alot of wonderful artists. After performing recently, Justin gave me his new CD. I was quite simply, blown away. The musicianship, the songs, the poetry and his haunting voice are just amazing. I haven't listened this much to a record in ages. I hope he reached many ears....

Matthew Hansz

Pam

One of the best albulms I've heard in a long time...it's timeless.

Jim Farley

It's the best CD I've heard for a long time.
This album is terrific, with a depth that is rare these days.

Yosuke

Incredible somethin' else!!
I really want to thanks for his great music. Justin Tracy, a British-born singer song writer has brilliant musical
sense.
He plays the guitar, piano, harmonica, percussions, and
so on. Jazz-oriented folk atmosphere expands with his rich and smoky voices.
If you are bored with lazy folk or looking for something
new, you must listen this one.

Blending a gruff, coarse quality that will light up the eyes of Tom Waits, Nick Drake, Bob Dylan, Richie Havens, John Martyn, David Gray and Van Morrison fans, this British folk pop artist couples that rugged edge with stunning warmth and accessibility- something like a crusty old cowboy with a soft, teddy-bear heart underneath. With a knack for singable, pointed melodies that already feel familiar upon the first listen, this is music that is easy to love, easy to wrap up in the reality of your own life experience. Brilliant- don't miss out.
