Feeling a bit camera shy


Yeah, she's still got a little sand in her hair and she's barefoot whenever possible, but this isn't stereotypical folk. Sure, it's acoustic. After that, it almost defies description.

"Saxby's sound is difficult to categorise and simply can't be lumped into any old box." Ben Preece (Time Off , Australia)

Everyone seems to hear something a little different. For some, it recalls the coffeehouses of the sixties. Others hear roots, funk, soul, and blues. Others detect a “distinct element of rock.” Ben Preece (Time Off)

Her lyrics are subtly textured with layer upon layer of different meanings. And you can dig as deep as you want.

As for her voice... it's a voice that will make you shiver. It's a voice that has stopped people in their tracks. It's a voice that can make your day a little brighter.

" stopped me in my tracks the other day..." Simon Backhouse (DJ Dynasty, Australia)

In less than a year, Tracey has captivated audiences on both sides of the equator. Starting with a weekly residency at Grind in Rossland, she also organized several sold out shows aimed to showcase local talented artists.

"Saw you play last night at the Railway. Beautiful. You're captivating. I'm a fan." Jeremy, Fan (Vancouver, BC Canada)

Her debut album—Barefoot Acoustic—has received extensive radio support across Canada and the USA and is being featured on podcasts worldwide. Tracey wanted the CD to be reminiscent of the bonfires on the beach where she honed her craft. The result is a delicious blend of organic acoustic rock inspired by the beaches of Australia and the mountains of British Columbia.

" of the most refreshing Singer/ Songwriters I have heard in a long time." Colin Shannon (President, Creative Radio)

Over the summer, she toured extensively across western Canada, played supporting shows for Andrea Revel, Lena, Ben Sigston, Lotus, and Po'Girl, and performed live on several radio stations.

In the rainy fall of the northern hemisphere, she travelled to Australia, playing shows for the first time to a home crowd in Brisbane, opening for Grand Atlantic, and finding inspiration for her next CD in the wilds of Tasmania.

Just a girl and her guitar...
