Biography

Traci's musical journey began at the very young age of three and has lead to her performing the national anthem for local sporting events, singing in talent shows and charity events, and in the eighth grade, recording a CD single “You Rescued Me”, composed by Daniel Kehoe. The past year has been a whirlwind for this enthusiastic teenager, who performed two sold-out concerts at the Majestic Theater in West Springfield, MA, for the release of her debut album “At Last”. In December she sang before a crowd of 5300 at the Mass Mutual Center in Springfield, MA, as a featured soloist of the Dan Kane Singers during their 29th Annual Christmas Spectacular. Following in the foot-steps of her mentor, Dan Kane, Traci has donated the proceeds from many of her concerts to people in need, and to the Council for the Promotion of the Arts in her home town.
In 2006 Traci met Jason Scott through her "At Last" album engineer, Jim Fogarty, at Zing Recording studios in Westfield, MA. Jason merged his song writing skills with Traci's rock/country singing style, while adding his own guitar expertise to the new demo songs as well, along with Jim Fogarty's mixing ear and piano and percussion talents. They enlisted some of their fellow musicians, and recruited Jeff Bennett to add the right touch of back-up vocals and harmony. Jason is head of his own New England renowned band "Exit 29", as well as having a couple of albums himself, including his new "Jason Scott - Welcome to My World".

Lyrics

Rainy Mondays

Written By: Jason Scott

V1:
Carolina was her name
She had a shoebox full of pain
In a trailer by the interstate
When her life became a mess
Like the stain upon her dress
She packed her bags and ran away

Pre-chorus:
When her mind couldn't take it
She knew she had to break it
But faking got in the way
And the spell that she was under
It put her undercover
Someone turn the page, looks like

Chorus:
Seven days of rainy mondays
Blue skies are cold dark and grey
Sick and tired of living seven days
Of rainy mondays

V2:
Working everyday this week
Waiting tables to make ends meet
She hung her apron at the bar
She just arrived in L.A.
On a bus from Sante Fe
She hopes to be a movie star

Pre-chorus:
When her mind couldn't take it
She knew she had to break it
But faking got in the way
And the spell that she was under
It put her undercover
Someone turn the page, looks like

Chorus:
Seven days of rainy mondays
Blue skies are cold dark and grey
Sick and tired of living seven days
Of rainy mondays

Instrumental break

Pre-chorus and Chorus x2

Blind

Written By: Jason Scott

V1:
Sipping on a bottle of wine with my radio turned to ten
And this hotel room keeps spinning around in my head
My shades pulled down and I'm not home
And I'm tangled in these sheets alone without you
Been looking for you

Pre-chorus:
But something about you lately
Makes something inside of me just explode

I'm going blind
Blind in what you say, blind with all you do
I'm going blind
Blind in what you say, blind with all you do
Blind over you

V2:
Clothes packed in a duffle bag on the floor over by the door
And a letter that says I can't take this anymore
Where the sun goes down and the stars are out
And the tide is high, people scream and shout for you
You know it's all about you

Pre-chorus:
But something about you lately
Makes something inside of me just explode

Chorus:
I'm going blind
Blind in what you say, blind with all you do
I'm going blind
Blind in what you say, blind with all you do
I'm blind over you, yeah

Instrumental break

Chorus:
I'm going blind
Blind in what you say, blind with all you do
I'm going blind
Blind in what you say, blind with all you do
I'm blind over you
