Bio

Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife deliver a shimmering style of Indie Americana, coasting a musical landscape between her Canadian roots and the heart and grit of Australia’s alt-country scene.

Picking up where they left off with their last album 'Thieves' (winner Best Country Album, The Age Music Victoria Awards 2016), this new material continues to draw from classic rock, pop and alt country influences, whilst simultaneously broadening their sonic palette.

After sell-out album Melbourne launches and national tours, they have performed at many major festivals around the country including Out On the Weekend, Riverboats, Port Fairy Folk Festival, Nannup, Bigsound and AmericanaFest (US) as part of Sounds Australia.

“A technicolour West Coast dreamscape: the sound of sunrise over cedars and noonday Joshua Trees and high desert dusk…” ✯✯✯✯ Rolling Stone

"McNeil never fails to dial into a nostalgic feeling – whether it’s one of blooming love, fading romance, the innocence of youth or the optimism of future possibilities. ‘Stars’ does some of that and more, sounding like Fleetwood Mac and The War On Drugs in a sun-kissed backyard jam." Post To Wire

It would be naive of me to say that Tracy McNeil sounds like someone else because the truth is she's a f*cking force of nature, unique, a powerhouse, a slayer, a genius, a musician of the highest degree.
