“A singer-songwriter with pinup swagger.”
“It’s like if Tori Amos and Lucinda Williams made out.”
Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections combines 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 sideplayer in the Boston rock scene (St. Helena, Parlour Bells, Nate Leavitt Band, and others), Tracy first brought her bittersweet ballads and fierce anthems center stage in 2015 with the release of her first solo EP, Fiercely, produced by Nate Leavitt and featuring a host of familiar faces in Boston music (Leavitt, Dan Nicklin, Ned Gallagher, Sam Spencer, Stud Green, Kelly Davis).
2016’s follow-up single, “Harder Girl” and the forthcoming EP is produced by Craig Small (Airport, Waltham), and features the full-time band, Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, comprised of Tracy, Small, Green, Spencer, and Tamora Gooding. Where the name ‘Missed Connections’ used to refer to the fact that each show featured a new set of musicians–people Tracy had either played with on other projects, or had always wanted to–it’s now a fully-realized lineup (with occasional guest stars).
