Tracy Bonham

Grammy™ nominee Tracy Bonham's new album, Modern Burdens, made Rolling Stone’s Top 50 albums of 2017, which they describe as “a lovingly penned postcard to Bonham’s past self, and a fascinating look at where she’s at right now.”

 Where she’s at—and the current wave of commercial and critical success she’s enjoying—is remarkable and rare for any artist. But for Tracy Bonham, it’s no surprise: she’s an artist who has never ceased growing and has never stopped challenging herself, her own talents, or her audience.

Bonham’s debut, The Burdens of Being Upright, achieved Gold Record status in 1996, spawning the chart-topping hit “Mother Mother.” A pair of Grammy™ nominations followed, along with an MTV Video Award nomination for the single, which has remained a powerful anthem for the disenfranchised and isolated.

After following The Burdens of Being Upright with the critically-acclaimed album Down Here—heralded by All Music Guide as “a smart, assured, and distinctive second effort that is a quantum leap past her debut”—Bonham moved to Los Angeles to become the featured vocalist and violinist for Blue Man Group. 2005’s Blink The Brightest cemented her as the commercial and artful songwriter her fans had already come to love, with multiple TV and film placements and her third extensive tour in as many records. Subsequent to her move back to Brooklyn, her 2010 album Masts of Manhatta garnered rave reviews and landed her her second appearance on The Tonight Show. “Unfalteringly charming lyricism,” was Billboard’s praise for the record, while Rolling Stone called the album, “a gorgeous celebration of adult love.”

The commercial and critical laurels won by her latest releases—both 2015’s Wax & Gold, and the aforementioned Modern Burdens—have further underlined exactly what makes Tracy Bonham a stand-out serious artist with a unique set of talents. As PopMatters aptly describes, “Bonham, from the beginning and increasingly over time, is a riveting, complicated maker of pop music.”

Tracy Bonham has joined the ECR Music Group roster of recording artists, and is currently on tour in the United States throughout 2018-2019 alongside acclaimed singer-songwriter Blake Morgan. Her artist-in-residence concert series at New York City’s Rockwood Music Hall debuted October 26th, 2018 and runs through April 18th, 2019.
