“Leave tonight, or live and die this way “

Tracy Chapman

4 time Grammy winner Tracy Chapman

From the coffeehouses of Boston to the Grammy Awards, she told a story that still resonates.

First album cover

Released in 1988, her premiere album featured the song “Fast Car”. A haunting sound with a brilliantly moving lyric.

For me, she was a throwback to the folk/blues singer songwriters of the 1960’s.

I know there are contemporary artists out there who have this depth of soul; just wish there were a few more of them.
