🇺🇸 FEATURED ARTIST: TRACY HAMLIN
Trying to describe TRACY HAMLIN with one word would be impossible. Few can master one genre of music, but pure, God-given talent allows her to master all. Her movements attract you, her music captivates you, and her voice soothes your soul with joy. Her immeasurable vocal and songwriting talents bestow upon audiences a remarkable experience, replenishing one’s hopefulness, love, and aspiration.
I introduce to you, Tracy Hamlin. She unveiled her soulful, exquisitely impassioned voice to the world at the La Fountain Blue at age eleven. She has been traveling the globe as a lead singer ever since, from Sweden to Japan to Morocco to name a few. On a substantial foundation of education, Hamlin developed classical proficiency and dexterity; learning to sing in French, German, and Italian at the Baltimore School of the Arts and the prestigious Peabody Preparatory School of Music.
Tracy Hamlin executive produced three solo albums through her own label, DMH Records, LLC, Seasons (2005), Better Days (2009), and This is My Life (2013). Tracy’s third release, This is My Life, hit the airwaves June 2013, immediately gained the attention of music lovers globally, and held the #1 position for two weeks on the UK Soul Charts. Fans were particularly drawn to her covers of Jimmy Webb’s This Is Your Life and Luther Vandross’ Never Too Much.
Before the release of her third solo album, Tracy teamed up with DJ Spen in 2012 to release a string of successful house music singles including ?Drive Me Crazy? which was #1 for top downloads/sales for 3 consecutive weeks on Traxsource, Got To Be Strong reaching the top 10 list for top downloads/sales, and Never Too Much also reaching #1 for top downloads/sales. The success of these house singles led to Tracy recently being signed to House Music label, Quantize Recordings, and the anticipated release of her debut LP with the label entitled Home released October 2013. On this musical offering, Tracy fuses the boundaries between Soul, Jazz, R&B and House music, making Homean exceptional showcase of what Tracy Hamlin represents.
2014 Tracy was placed on the Grammy Ballot, Toured in London opening for Karyn White at the Legendary Jazz Cafe and spotlighted on the same ticket with Chaka Khan at the South Port Weekender. She Co-produced Tony Tatum’s single Could It Be I’m Falling In Love and also ranked #1 on the Reverb nation charts.
Tracy Hamlin performs upon request at a myriad of venues and festivals. Hamlin’s aspirations are to continue her development and growth as an artist, to continue mentoring a new generation of vocalists while performing amongst audiences around the globe.
