Tracy Island: Home
Welcome aboard the online home of Tracy Island! We are an electric duo from Brooklyn that plays progressive retro-pop: songs with form and sophisticated lyrics that push boundaries, and music which draws inspiration from the 60s, 70s and 80s. We’ve garnered comparisons as eclectic as Blondie and Richard Thompson.
Since the year 2000, Liza & Ian Roure’s musical collaborations mixing New York City lo-fi new wave, West Coast jangle-psychedelia, and the poppier side of British folk rock have been heard worldwide on three studio albums and two international tours featuring Liza’s songwriting as Liza & the WonderWheels (2002-2010).
The first Tracy Island album WAR NO MORE was released with a party November 3, 2015 at the Bowery Electric in New York City.
The nine songs were written by Liza, and Tracy Island played all the instruments on the album with Liza laying down vocals, electric and acoustic guitars, drums, drum programming and percussion and Ian contributing electric 6 and 12-string guitars, vocals, bass, and percussion.
New York Music Daily lauded WAR NO MORE as a BEST 50 ALBUM OF 2015.
