Biography

Born in a small city outside of Philly, I grew up seeing many parks but very little diversity. I knew the first time I visited NY, that one day I would live there... And I did. I moved to NY with my training in recording and piano and my love for sound. My objective: To create my own sound and have a voice in this world. Growing up, my parents loved to dance and perform with me and my sisters to Motown. That inspired me to try my hand at writing songs as a young girl. In junior high, I played in my first rock and roll band. That's when it became a part of me: Rock and Roll... the feeling. We played covers of our favorite artists Stevie Nicks, Sly, The Beatles of course and a lot of Zeppelin. With these influences running through my fingers, spirit and throat, I discovered jazz in Boston at The Berklee College of Music... I was changed forever. I developed the understanding that music is universal... the colors and vibrations it captures and creates. I grew. I faced love as a young woman in the city, cultivated friendships, felt pain and hardship. I learned about the world by touring with groups throughout the US, Europe and Asia. Then love and opportunity brought me to LA, which is where I have made my debut album. And with my life savings and all of my heart, soul, tears and convictions, I am bringing it to the world... starting here... EVERY ARTIST WANTS TO TOUCH THE WORLD.................. RIGHT NOW, I JUST WANT TO TOUCH YOU.

Lyrics

Alive

Written By: Tracey Amos

I used too know who I am, where I’ve been and just where I’m goin
But now it’s hard for me, to know anything

I want to feel Alive sharing a smile,
with each passer by.
Oh I want to feel so high, from being Alive

Tears used to only come down
From pain or reasons I could explain
But now there’s only rhyme for these wet eyes

I want to feel Alive sharing a smile,
with each passer by.
Oh I want to feel so high, from being Alive

Doo…doo…doo…doo…doo…doo…doo…doo…

Where do I get these childish notions?
Come with me and I will show you my story of Love
Come with me and I will show you my story of Love
Where do I get these childish notions?

Standing

Written By: Tracey Amos

You, want me to give you answers that will take it all away ,make it go away...
you know there's no such thing.
You must feel the pain and learn to trust again...dig

It's up to you
To look to the future or the past
To have many or no regrets,it's over

And you are Standing
Standing, where what you will decide will shape the rest of your life
Know you are Standing
Standing, in a new moment of time
that's what life provides.

Don't, don't let the world fool you.
You know you'll find away
No it ain't getting any easier
In the cold night, soon you'll be standing in the warm sunshine

It's up to you
To look to the future or the past
To have many or no regrets,it's over
It's up to you
To look to the future or the past
move forward or looking back come on come on and

Know you are Standing
Standing, where what you will decide will shape the rest of your life
Know you are Standing
Standing, in a new moment of time
That's what life provides.

Don't live in your troubled mind,
when it's worrying and it's doubting
You gotta,
Listen to the voice of faith inside
Cause it understands love is the answer
