Tracey Browne to release single Kate Rusby

Everyone is Ordinary, an album invoking comparison to a host of singer-songwriters including…A British Joan Osborne perhaps, a 21st century Kirsty MacColl, a folkier Sarah McLachlan, a poppier Sheryl Crow...we invite you to judge for yourself.

Championed by Nigel Stonier and Thea Gilmore, Tracey Browne has also garnered praise from Lavinia Blackwall (of Trembling Bells) and has supported O’Hooley and Tidow (finalists in the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards 2013). Hers is a sound that transcends comparisons; often deceptively straightforward and shot through with a pop sensibility.

2013 has been a breakthrough year for Tracey and with such prominent supporters in the music world she is releasing her new single Kate Rusby on the day she plays Cambridge Folk Festival.

The album was recorded in a 17th century church in Northenden, Greater Manchester. Perceiving something magical in the acoustics, she gathered a team of musicians and producer of choice Nigel Stonier - who, having worked with Thea Gilmore, Joan Baez, Martha Wainwright and Clare Teal to name but a few, knows a quality singer songwriter when he hears one.  Jumping in at any hour of the day or night, Tracey engineered AND performed, literally hitting the record button in the control room then dashing through to the studio area to perform her vocal overdubs.

The result is a stunningly fine 11 track album in which the emotions of Tracey’s songs take flight on the empathy of the musicians and the combination of spirit and quirk brought to the recording process.
