Tracorum‰Ûªs contagious musical journeying is a blend of southern swamp pop, soul, honky tonk, roots rock americana with a rhythmic diversity that adds elements of funk, latin-caribbean and gospel stomp to their unique sound. Great songwriting steeped in rich vocal harmonies and urban storytelling are the vehicle on which this powerful quartet had made their national ascent.
‰ÛÏAt the end of the day we are a Rock n Roll band in the truest sense‰Û� says piano/vocalist Fletcher Nielsen ‰ÛÏWe thrive on a diversity of sound because it‰Ûªs an honest representation of where we collectively come from as people.
‰ÛÏIn one show we might musically visit New Orleans, the Appalachian mountains, Delta blues, church, psychedelic 60‰Ûªs, England‰Ûªs Rock heroes, say hello to Dylan and Willie Nelson drop Parliament/Funkadelic a bone and end up in Jamaica with a final stop in Memphis via southern Georgia.‰Û�
‰ÛÏIt works because every song or style we play is unified by the true heart of rock and roll that is put into every performance. Tracorum has developed a unique sound which makes every original song or choice cover we play come across as if it was our own. People say eclectic is a marketing death wish but the spirit of resistance and potential that threads through our shows connects us with the audience in an symbiotic convergence that leaves both the band and the crowd energized night after night, for us that is Rock and Roll‰Û�
The band has released three studio albums:
2006 ‰ÛÒ ‰ÛÏRock n Soul‰Û�
2011 ‰ÛÒ ‰ÛÏThe Lesson‰Û� Added and in rotation on over 130 College/AAA Radio Stations. Charted top 25 CMA for 10+ weeks
