Galway singer-songwriter, multi instrumentalist and spellbinding vocalist, Tracy Bruen, blends and bends folk, prog and pop with classical and theatrical influences to create epic compositions of power and vulnerability which lie between the folk stylings of Joni Mitchell and art pop of Kate Bush.
Tracy has toured extensively throughout Ireland and Europe over the last few years after the release of her debut album Mirror, which was named Galway Album of the year by the Galway Advertiser. Two of her most recent singles have received extensive national and regional radio play and made the RTE Radio 1 Recommends playlists with Dream Away reaching number 2 on the RTE Radio charts. She is currently recording her sophomore album, due for release this year
Having supported artists such as Lisa Hannigan, We Banjo 3, Mick Flannery, The Stunning and John Smith and played the larger stages of many of Ireland's major festivals including Electric Picnic, Body & Soul, Sunflower Fest and the Galway Arts Festival, Tracy Bruen is continually and consistently developing her audience both at home and abroad.
Tracy is also a primary trained teacher, teaching in a special school and a music educator with Music Generation Galway. She is a founding member of the youth music project, Livefeed and founded, arranged music for, and conducted The Blue Notes Choir in Galway city for a number of years. She has hosted and managed the Open Mic Night in the Róisín Dubh for the last ten years and regularly plays in venues in Galway city and county with her cover band, Down the Road.

"A spellbinding blend of indie, folk, prog, country, and roots topped off by her powerful, and varied, vocal abilities...her honesty and vulnerability create something quite moving"
Kernan Andrews, The Galway Advertiser
"...a lovely sliver of pop"
The Point of Everything Blog
“A voice of husky, whispery, and sky-reaching heights is unapologetically Kate Bush-like and the blend of hill-walking candle-lit voyaging and blues guitar make it both timeless and fitting with the current music trend.”
We Plug Good Music
“With a stunning vocal range and a theatrical bent, multi-instrumentalist Tracy Bruen blends indie folk with wistful blues to tug the heartstrings and inspire the mind. Let her rich and intriguing melodies take you away on a wave of sound and soul that is as original as it is lyrical.”
Electric Picnic Top Picks
“…one of the foremost voices on the Galway scene.”
