Come Take My Hand
'Music is what I live and breathe. For me, if there were no music there would be no life.' Tracy Blackman '...Her expertise is worthy of your sharpest ear.' SF Weekly Once honored as one of San Francisco's top ten unsigned artists, Tracy Blackman is a force to be reckoned with. Blackman's debut CD 'Come Take My Hand' has ten simmering tracks that are a delicious blend of organic folk, rock and blues spiced with funky, soulful flavor. Among the collections of songs penned by Blackman are the funky opening track 'I Need You', the powerful title track 'Come Take My Hand' and 'Feel the Rain,' a sweet ending to a CD you'll listen to again and again. Six tracks feature Cindy Blackman, one of jazz's premier drummers and bass player Jack Daley. Together the two make up the powerhouse rhythm section behind the Lenny Kravitz band. An engaging performer, she never fails to amaze audiences with her dynamic range. Tracy's style is said to be reminiscent of Rickie Lee Jones and Sheryl Crow. Listeners are easily drawn in when they hear her wide ranging vocals that soothe like rain with deep, thought provoking lyrics that pull the listeners in. Drawing from a variety of influences, she commands your attention with every song. In addition, Ms. Blackman has composed music for the indie films 'Decaf,' 'Your Guardian' and the syndicated television talk show, 'The Leeza Show'. She has also written background music for public service announcements and commercials.
