Tracye Eileen, a Chicago native blends her Gospel roots with a rich, sultry, soulful sound. She has the ability to captivate her audience by embodying the raw emotion of a tune, and has the vocal chops to channel this into a powerful performance. Tracye makes a personal connection with her audience, through her warmth and sense of humor and is backed by her own 5-piece band, “The PTR Band” made up of top Chicago-based musicians. In 2012, Tracye founded her label Honey Crystal Records, and released her debut Jazz CD “Love’s Journey.” In 2013, she founded Tracye Troy Music Publishing, which features original music such as “Why Did I Say Yes” included on her recent same-titled single. Tracye has a residency at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago, where she performs both a monthly jazz set and acoustic blues set . She has opened for such acts as Babyface, The Stylistics, Mary Wilson, Chante Moore, After 7, Storm Large and Buddy Guy.
“Destined to soar to women’s anthem status, vocalist Tracye Eileen’s upcoming release “Why Did I Say Yes” is sung with smarts and sass. Intelligent women, she croons, can still make mistakes, and she proves you can be strong, own it, then move on. Crossing her gospel gutsiness with smooth, jazzy sensibility, Tracye musters every emotion and paints like a master. Her melodies feel intuitive, her pacing is precise and the lyrics leave you nodding in deep approval. This new CD should knock a lot of socks off. Go wiggle your toes and catch the groove.”
