2016

Pop - General

Chocolate Happy Cake is a watershed album for Tracy in terms of songwriting, poignant lyrics, deft and nuanced keyboard playing, carefully orchestrated and textured performances, and richly expressive vocals. Over the album's 12 intimate tracks, Tracy explores struggles, aspirations, inner journeys, and redemption.

It represents Tracy's invigorating live-for-the-moment spirit, and it also reveals the origins of the album's name. During her trek, Tracy stopped at a friend's house who baked her a chocolate birthday cake while she slept. In the fevered moment of sweet inspiration, the friend left off writing "Birthday" on the cake so Tracy awoke to a delicious treat emblazoned with "Happy Tracy." Chocolate Happy Cake was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Glenn Barratt. Glenn assembled the lineup of musicians, including Michael G Ronstadt (of Ronstadt Generations), well-known Philly bass player Chico Huff, and Erik Johnson and Kevin Hansen, both formerly of the charting modern rock
