What happens when an alternative rock guitarist picks up an acoustic guitar and starts performing solo? You get Tracey Barnett.

The West Australian singer-songwriter has earned a reputation for heartfelt songwriting and exhilarating shows thanks to her distinctive, high-energy brand of blues and roots. That reputation saw her crowned ‘Best Regional Act’ at the 2018 West Australian Music Industry Awards.

Armed with her trusty acoustic guitar, harmonica, stomp-box and soaring vocals, Tracey weaves her emotive and passionate stories into your very soul. People love the energy and skill behind her powerhouse stage presence and are moved and inspired by her emotive lyrics, solid rhythm and slide guitar hooks.

Initially from an alternative rock background, Tracey’s style mixes experimental flair with traditional rock, blues and a hint of country, creating a fusion that’s impossible to resist. Her dynamic sound inspires hopefulness, connectedness and pure, unadulterated fun.

While some performers might choose to go down the full band path after a taste of success, Tracey made a conscious choice to stay true to her roots and perform mainly solo. It’s a decision that’s paid off big time for the Bridgetown local, receiving an award at the West Australian Music Industry Awards for ‘Best Regional Act’ 2018, WAM Song of the Year nominations across multiple years, two WAM Award nods in 2017, and festival slots at many of WA’s biggest folk, blues and roots festivals.

From festivals to intimate venues, Tracey’s music fills any space with powerful energy and an uplifting sense of hope.
