Beginning her musical journey performing religiously and for friends at weddings over a decade ago, Woody has come a long way, yet still retained that unique, fresh outlook on how to sing, how to perform.
Woody says her musical ambition is to inspire people. These songs are the very definition of inspirational. They translate the music religiously into the universal language of the dance floor. They use electronic influences without distilling the beauty of what is a unique voice.
Woody has already garnered praise far and wide.
The buzz around Tracy Woody is already there for all to see. With the release of this EP, that buzz is only going to grow and grow.

Chiudiamo questa rubrica degli artisti selezionati da Sonicbids con un po' di elettronica e dance.
Vi presento Tracy Woody, cantautrice dai mille talenti del North Carolina (USA), che debutta nella scena musicale col suo EP "Sweet Beat Of Love" con al suo interno, oltre alla traccia omonima, altri tre brani, tra cui "Your Love" e due remix.
La Woody ha iniziato il suo viaggio musicale più di dieci anni fa grazie alla musica religiosa, cantando ai matrimoni e per gli amici. E questa influenza religiosa la si può sentire anche in "Sweet Beat Of Love", dove essa si fonda ai ritmi dance elettronici e ad un potente canto di stampo puramente pop.
La stessa Tracy afferma che la sua ambizione quale musicista è ispirare la gente e sembra proprio riuscirci con questi brani, dove traduce religiosamente la musica nel linguaggio universale della sala da ballo, utilizzando l'elettronica senza che questo vada a discapito della sua voce unica.
Il potenziale di "Sweet Beat of Love" viene subito dimostrato quendo questo raggiunge la prima posizione della Dance Chart ed entra nella top 20 dei singoli due volte consecutive al terzo e secondo posto su Indie Castle.
La Woody ha vinto il Platinum Auddy Trophy Award per "Your Love (New)", "Sweet Beat of Love" e "Sweet Beat of Love Remix", ottenendo una menzione d'onore per "Your Love" e il suo nuovo brano "I Love Me and You". Inoltre è stata invitata a proporre le sue canzoni e a suonare agli All Indie Music Awards ad Hollywood.
Non si è però fermata agli Stati Uniti, la sua musica infatti ha raggiunto la Svizzera, la Germania, il Regno Unito, la Repubblica di Centro Africa. Ovunque ha ottenuto premi, riconoscimenti e airplay, tra cui ricordiamo in particolare quello di Skope Magazine TV/Radio.
Ma questo è solo il punto di partenza.
Adesso Tracy sta cercando nuove possibili collaborazioni per portare la sua musica in Italia e magari avere la possibilità di suonare nel nostro paese.

Probabilmente ci saranno nuove opportunità in futuro per gli artisti emergenti o sconosciuti in Italia, per il momento continuerò comunque ad occuparmi anche di musica in questo blog, tenendovi aggiornati sulle novità riguardanti alcuni tra gli artisti con i quali lavoro e altri che amo ascoltare o vedere dal vivo.

Sometimes an artist comes along who makes everyone in the musical world sit up and take notice. Tracy Woody could well be one of those artists. An Indie singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur, Woody is set to burst onto the scene with the incendiary dance floor filler that is ‘Sweat Beat of Love.’ This powerful, emotional, vibrant four-track EP is the announcement of an artist who has big, big things ahead of her. ‘Sweat Beat of Love’ marries the almost religious style that informed Woody’s early musical education to electric dance floor beats and a hugely powerful pop vocal. It is a single that will wow dance floors as much as the home listener. Backed with the equally infectious ‘Your Love’ and two remixes, this EP is tight, life-enhancing and essential music. These songs are the very definition of inspiration. They translate the music religiously into the universal language of the dance floor. They use electronic influences without distilling the beauty of what is a unique voice.
Woody's singing influence is her mother's operaretic tone and her love for singing religiously in which from a young age of 2 she was inspired in her love of music and singing. At the age of 11 years old, Woody was asked to sing and perform in talent shows and at weddings through the years. Singing is a joy to her, a blessing, and a privilege that she loves to share with others.
Woody also took acting classes locally. In 1999 at an IMTA competition in California Woody won a few ribbons in singing and in a TV Commercial. She also competed in a local competition where she won the #1 position and was offered studio time and a record deal. After releasing Sweet Beat of Love CD EP in the Spring of 2011, she recently won the Platinum Auddy Trophy Awards, won Semi-finalist and 2 other Commending Entries Certificates in the prestigious UK Songwriting Contest of 2011 in front of a panel of expert music judges, and 3 Top Runner Up positions in Gary Allen's World Best Song Contest, garnered the #1 local Dance position and reached positions 3-6 Nationally and Globally on www.reverbnation.com/tracywoody, on www.johnnyrock.com/members/charts/weekly for several weeks have been in positions 1-3 in August and September 2011, and on www.Indiecastle.net positions 2-3 for her songs on Sweet Beat of Love CD EP. Woody is ecstatic and grateful.
Woody's songs have been air played in Central African Republic, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, South Korea, United Kingdom, and throughout the USA. Woody's appreciative exposure in magazine coverage like www.starsconfidential.com brings a wider variety of appeal to her music. Her fans on Jango have been increasing and commenting positively on her music in which she also is thankful for as well at www.jango.com/music/Tracy+Woody
Singing is her spice of life that she loves to spread it's message of love both near and far. She worked with top-notch professional producers for Sweet Beat of Love and Sweet Beat of Love Remix which included Studio Pros on their Grammy Award winning Engineer and for Your Love, Jeremy Underwood, with his Certified Platinum recognition along with Joe Steele, and also for both songs she also worked with Dick Hodgins.
Through her music she has been exposed to TV and Casting Directors who have expressed interest in her auditioning for various roles which continued interest exposes her music even more. With Woody's Sweet Beat of Love CD EP being selected to be voted in the Best Artist of the Year, Best Album of the Year, Pop, and Electronica categories in Hollywood's All Indie Music Awards Red Carpet, celebrities, and TV event and in the Pop, Dance, World, Electronica categories in the 11th Annual Independent Music Awards with details at http://lnk.ms/QpJjD the international buzz of Woody's music of love will continue to grow and spread worldwide.
