Biography

TRACY STARR is a “Hard Rock” band, from Moncton , N-B. Canada, and is the brain child of Steve LeBlanc and Daniel Dupuis. Tracy Starr is best described as a revival of gutsy, hard hitting, tongue-in-cheek rock and roll

Steve LeBlanc and Daniel Dupuis are former members of East Coast Music Awards winners “An Acoustic Sin”. In the days with An Acoustic Sin, Steve and Dan saw tours across Canada, top 10 charting singles and numerous t.v. appearances. Soon after parting way’s with “An Acoustic Sin” in late 2002, Steve and Dan started work on a brand new project…one that would not only creatively satisfy them but also one that would let them write and perform music on there own terms. Their aim became to write songs that were solid, as Leblanc puts it, the kind that make you want to crank the car stereo. The pair took some time to write and demo some songs, before searching for two more brothers to complete the Tracy Starr family. The search was over when auditioning Stephen Deyoung and Jason Arsenault, formerly of The Amazing Catfish.

Whether on stage or in the studio, the quartet exhibits a wealth of creative energy, as exhibited in their first single Ride, which wowed listeners of online radio station Radio xXx so much that the band destroyed their opposition in voting for the weekly Unearthed award in January 2006. Summer 2006 has seen the band’s number one single release; “RIDE” climb up the charts in private radios station in Atlantic Canada. Appropriately, their live shows leave nothing to be desired either; they are the release of pent-up artistic intensity... as well as the realization of a dream, five years in the making.

In mid 2006 the band inked a deal with U.S. label “Perris Records” that saw TRACY STARR’s debut album released in the U.S and in Europe last may. Since then the band, has focused it’s energy on the band’s coming out in their hometown “MONCTON”, a major event was organized at the O2 night club in Moncton, on November 10th 2006. Over 1100 people rushed to get tickets in advance, so the event was sold out weeks before the bands performance. Due to the overwhelming response the band received at their firs show, a second show was schedulled two weeks later, they played at the Igloo night club in Moncton , it’s a smaller venue , only 600 tickets were put on sale and again the concert sold out, . So it’fair to say that Tracy Starr’s debut on stage was a huge success.

In the next few months, the band will work on getting the cd released in Canada, and will spend time fine tuning their show. Tracy Starr will be making some surprise appearances around the Maritimes. In February, they will be showcasing at the ECMA’S conference, and most likely at the South by Southwest conference in the U.S. Also, tracking for their first single "RIDE" is schedule to start in early December. With plans to tour across Canada and eastern US in the spring and summer 2007.
