“We’re all women just trying to survive...yes, we dive into port-a-potties for bracelets…”
— Tracy Lynn
Tracy Lynn is a proud native of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, where she operates her own music school “Sound Waves Lesson Studio" and music education empire. She is a singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and a passionate educator. Tracy has a wicked sense of humor and often catches the listener with the gritty and tender rolled into one. Tracy joined the band after buying a fiddle from Annie called, “Dreamrider” many years ago in a haze of boxed wine. Years later, the two started a duo based on their gritty, yet boundless faith. It was like “Women Who Run With the Wolves” set to an old honky tonk soundtrack. With some crying. And some laughing. And some crying and laughing simultaneously.
Tracy is the purveyor of IN THE JAM MUSIC, which began as a guitar program that was accessible for families who wanted to involve their children in a music program that was affordable and effective and has grown over 12 years to include other instruments as well as a jamming program that has taken to the road and will be celebrating a full season of camps and clinics this year.
With travels throughout Canada and US teaching ITJM as well as working for other camps, Tracy is fast tearing up the road. You can find these dates on the band calendar as well as on Tracy’s music and teaching pages listed below.
Tracy’s influences include: Kitty Wells, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou, Linda Ronstadt, Diana Ross, Supremes, Suzi Quatro, Joni Mitchell, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Tyson; Donna Ulisse, Andrew Collins & Foggy Hogtown Boys, Annie Savage, Jodi Harbin
In the band….Tracy serves as a lead and harmony, guitar player and brings in songs with a bit of a dark edge and shines some light on them. She’s our book-keeper and develops and manages payday type events, our business plan and perhaps most fundamentally, Tracy guides us in our before and after performance prayers. Tracy holds the band record for, “highest number of strings cut off of other band members’ instruments with stealth and fierce grace”.
