Picture a scrawny fourteen-year-old girl sitting on a diving board over an empty pool on an overcast day, strumming the same four chords over and over again, on her brother’s cheap acoustic guitar. That’s Tracy Newman, but that’s not how she sees herself. From Tracy’s POV, the pool is full and clear blue, it’s a bright sunny LA day, and her brother’s guitar is the best guitar in the world! That kind of sums up singer/songwriter Tracy Newman’s body of work to date. There are some genuinely happy songs in the mix, but overall, if you really listen you will hear the truth. “A Place in the Sun” is great traveling music, and you can’t help but smile and sing along, then it hits you: Wow, there’s more to this than meets the ear. “I Just See You” will make you cry for the beauty of what didn’t realize you had. “That’s What Love Can Do to Your Heart” will drag you kicking and screaming through the carefree beginning to the bitter end of your most memorable love affair. You will not be able to get these songs out of your mind.
Tracy is a founding member of the LA based improv group, The Groundlings, which over the years has became the farm company for SNL. She began writing TV comedy in 1990 with writing partner, Jonathan Stark. Their first gig was Cheers, then Bob, The Nanny, Ellen and The Drew Carey Show. In 1997, they won an Emmy and Peabody Award for writing the groundbreaking “coming out” episode of Ellen. In 2001, they created the ABC comedy, According to Jim, which ran for eight seasons. Tracy is back to music now, full time.
