The Idea

Vocalist Tracy Ready spearheads Trace Relations, the band. His career as a Director of Photography in television production blends with a passion for the music of his life to bring us Trace Relations.


The project is a culmination of thirty years of collaboration in the music business for Tracy. Trace Relations features some of the finest blues, rock and jazz musicians that Texas has to offer.


In 1998, Trace hatched the idea for the project. Trace Relations is just that, all his musical relations. It’s a tribute to artists and songs that influenced him and a showcase for many great musicians he’s had the privilege of knowing over the years.


The Music

The debut CD "Prosperity Street" is a unique listening experience encompassing Rock, Blues, Jazz and Americana styles.


Looking at the songs chosen for the album, a theme emerges: Acceptance. In one way or another each song relates to accepting where we are in life, and a determination to have a good time in spite of obstacles the world has thrown our way.


The covers include songs by Augie Meyers, Doug Sahm, Willie Dixon, T-Bone Walker and Frank Zappa, in original arrangements by the band. Eclectic to say the least, the songs were selected to be musical milestones, a twisted tale of groove. Really, it was all about making the record Trace would like to put on at a party.
