Soulful vocals, poignant songwriting, and piano-driven pop-rock with a dash of sleazy swagger and alt-country twang.

A veteran of the New England singer-songwriter circuit and a busy side-player in the Boston rock scene (Juliana Hatfield, Band of Their Own, Nate Leavitt Band, St. Helena), Tracy first brought her bittersweet ballads and audacious anthems center stage in 2015 with a solo EP, Fiercely, produced by Nate Leavitt. Since then the band has become a staple of the Boston music scene, featuring such in-demand Boston players as Stud Green (Humble Tripe), Tamora Gooding (Gene Dante & the Future Starlets, Axemunkee), Mike Oram (Abbie Barrett Band, Eric Salt & Electric City, Cujo, Andrea Gillis Band), and Sam Spencer (Sera Del Fuego, Milling Gowns). In 2019, they released their first full-length album, Long Fuse Burning, and received a nomination for Singer-Songwriter of the Year at the Boston Music Awards.

The band is committed to using music for social good, and proud to be affiliated with organizations including Girls Rock Campaign Boston, Mass Trans Political Coalition, and Yes All Women Boston.

What press says:

“You know those jam-packed gems recorded at Muscle Shoals? Magen Tracy’s debut single “Fiercely” feels like one of those…The singer-songwriter-keyboard queen doesn’t sound retro, but she delivers old-school sleazy swagger — you can almost hear that “Gimme Shelter” scream in the background.” – Jed Gottlieb, Boston Herald (Fiercely EP review, May 2015)

“…a rootsy twirl around folk and Americana that’s aided by Tracy’s sharp lyrical play.” –Michael Marotta, Vanyaland (Harder Girl song premiere, September 2016)

“A smokey speakeasy vibe with rock n’ roll and a bit of glam rock…The melody digs itself into your brain and won’t dislodge.” – Brian Carroll, Red Line Roots (Color the Air song and video review, September 2017)

What fans say:

“A singer-songwriter with pinup swagger.”

“It’s like if Tori Amos and Lucinda Williams made out.”
