Tracy Delucia – Empowered

by Chuck Dauphin

You don’t hear of that many New York based country girls, but the stunning Tracy Delucia has made a habit of going against the grain during her life and career. Her style definitely has dashes of Country, as well as Rock, and she possesses quite the energy when performing these cuts.

Simply put, Delucia has attitude – and plenty of it. That comes to the forefront of such energetic cuts as the fun and loose “Shady Tree In Maui,” as well as the sass-filled “Ain’t Got Time To Be Sad,” which she handles with a great deal of moxie, and she sizzles on the flirty “In The Backseat.”

But, it’s not all about heavy rhythms. Delucia also can handle a ballad, and stirs up some heavy emotions on “Best Laid Plans,” but serves up her best vocal performance with the evocative “I Need You.” Is the album perfect? No, the production sometimes doesn’t focus on her voice as much as it should, but I like what I hear here. I hope we all get to hear a lot more of it!
