Having previously been a part of pop punk band Shelley’s Children who delivered some of the most biting lyrics of the late 80’s, wrapped up in hook laden glittering perfect pop, Tracey’s solo career was launched almost by accident when she was encouraged by her children to write a protest song against a planned by-pass that would ruin their local riverside dens and rope swings. Since 2004, she has continued to write beautiful folk-pop protest songs.
