Baltimore native, Tracy Hamlin unveiled her soulful, exquisitely impassioned voice to the world at the La Fountain Blue at age eleven. She has been traveling the globe as a lead singer ever since, from Sweden to Japan to Morocco. Her single, "Drive Me Crazy,” is presently traversing charts across Europe, Asia, and Africa, having occupied the #1 spot for top sales four times over a three month duration. Tracy's immeasurable vocal and songwriting talents bestow upon audiences a remarkable experience, replenishing one's hopefulness, love, and aspiration.
On a substantial foundation of education, Hamlin developed classical proficiency and dexterity; learning to sing in French, German, and Italian at the Baltimore School of the Arts and the prestigious Peabody Preparatory School of Music.
Tracy Hamlin has performed alongside numerous music legends including Gloria Gaynor, Carlos Santana, Marcus Miller, Jonathan Butler, and Chaka Khan. She also toured internationally as the lead vocalist with Heads Up International recording artists, Pieces of a Dream and was featured on ‘Love’s Silhouette’ (2002) and ‘No Assembly Required’ (2005).
Hamlin executive produced three solo albums through her own label, DMH Records, LLC, ‘Seasons’ (2005), ‘Better Days’ (2009), and ‘This is My Life’ (2013). ‘Seasons’ set the tone for Hamlin taking her place center stage, exhibiting a breathtaking presentation of her rich vocal tones.
‘Better Days,’ an exceptional successor to ‘Seasons,’ provides a truthful and transparent portrayal of Tracy's musical universe. Songs such as “You’ve Got To Let Go” and “No Regrets” compassionately guide one through self-reflection, while “Better Days” and “Free” offer warming reveries of belief and optimism. With help from collaborative producers Phil Davis, Eric Valentine, and Kelvin Wooten, “Better Days” takes listeners on an inspiring odyssey.
Tracy’s third release, ‘This is My Life,’ hit the airwaves June 2013, immediately gained the attention of music lovers globally, and held the #1 position for two weeks on the UK Soul Charts.
Before the release of her third solo album, Tracy teamed up with DJ Spen in 2012 to release a string of successful house music singles including “Drive Me Crazy” which was #1 for top downloads/sales for 3 consecutive weeks on Traxsource, “Got To Be Strong” reaching the top 10 list for top downloads/sales, and “Never Too Much” also reaching #1 for top downloads/sales.
The success of these house singles led to Tracy recently being signed to House Music label, Quantize Recordings, and the anticipated release of her debut LP with the label entitled ‘Home’ due October 2013. On this musical offering, Tracy fuses the boundaries between Soul, Jazz, R&B and House music, making 'Home’ an exceptional showcase of what Tracy Hamlin represents.
Tracy Hamlin performs upon request at a myriad of venues and festivals. She also tours internationally as lead background vocalist for Disco Queen, Gloria Gaynor. Hamlin's aspiration is to continue her development and growth as an artist, while performing amongst audiences around the globe.less
