Bio

Fate paved the way for Beaucyrus. In late 2007 John and Tracy met while she was working at a convience store that he happened to stop at on his way to work. John had just returned home to Virginia after living in North Carolina for a number of years and playing music there. It was music that ended up sealing the fate of these two for as they became friends they found that they shared a passion for singing and songwriting as well.

Coming off of his time in North Carolina where he played with such groups as Robert Tilley and the Hard Times Band, Carolina Sunrise, and None of the Above, John was eager to start writing and recording his own music and build his own band. It was this endeavor that finally led him to ask Tracy for her assistance with some background vocals. Soon the two were sharing lyrics and guitar licks as well as a desire to be heard by the masses. It was out of this shared desire that a relationship blossomed that was about more than just music. The two were married in October 2008.

Though it has not been easy for John and Tracy to get together a good group of musicians they are convinced that the Lord will provide them with the tools that they need to succeed in the music industry. They both believe that as long as they are using the gifts that He blessed them with, He will make a way for them to do what they love and still bring honor to the one that blessed them with this talent. John and Tracy always remember to put God first in their music and stay true to the roots that they have in Southwest Virginia.

John was raised in Coeburn, Virginia the son of a meat cutter and legal aid; and Tracy was raised in Appalachia Virginia by her parents who worked with Westmoreland Coal Company. Her father was a coal miner and her mother worked in payroll and then later for the UMWA. Both were brought up in church where they cultivated their singing gift on Sunday mornings.

Tracy remembers singing on stage with her older sister when she was just old enough to talk, and John would play the iron wall hanging guitar's that adorned the walls of his home in his youth. It wasn't long, however, before a mandolin and a real guitar was put in those hands and his music career began.

Both John and Tracy enjoy bring their own spin to traditional Bluegrass music and they feel that it is very important to always put what you feel into your performance, not what everyone else feels. To be unique in this industry is somthing that they both desire for it is in that uniqueness that they will find both a fan base and a foothold to greatness.

It is always important to remember you heritage as well and they do that in magnificant form taking inspiration from such legends as Lloyd Loar, Bill Monroe, Allison Krauss, Rhonda Vincent, Blue Highway, Doyle Lawson, Jimmie Martin, and Larry Sparks. But still keeping their youth and their creativity sparked with the likes of Cadillac Sky, The Steeledrivers, The Carolina Chocolate Drops, Mountain Heart, Dailey and Vincent, and Sam Bush.

These two will not disappoint as they grow their band and grow their horizons with their skill, performance, and drive.
