Short Bio

Philly-based Tracy Colletto has garnered comparisons to Carole King, Jonatha Brooke and Joni Mitchell for her songwriting and vocal style. Several songs from her second album, Chocolate Happy Cake have been added to playlists for many terrestrial and online radio stations, including WXPN's Sleepy Hollow and WSTW. Her music is inspired by personal perseverance and far-away places. In addition to music, Tracy has a passion for the natural world, visual arts and traveling.

Her single, "The Ride," is a nominee for Best Alt. Country Song at the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards (2016). She has also earned an Honorable Mention in the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition for her song "The Promise" (2001), won runner-up in the Triad Music Festival Songwriting Standoff (2017), was a nominee for "Best Indie Female Artist" by Radio-Wigwam in the UK (2017) and earned a bronze medal for lyrics/album from Global Music Awards for Chocolate Happy Cake (2019). She was  hand-picked by Judy Stakee to participate in her "It All Starts with a Song" retreats in 2017.

Three new singles released in 2019: "Rosa," "Those Secrets" and "Pretty Lights," which is part of the holiday project by P.E.A.C.E. (Philadelphia Entertaining Artists Community Endeavor) a fundraiser for Philadelphia charities.

“Tracy Colletto’s music is a powerful symphonic blend of piano-based pop with authentic lyrics and a voice that is unique, yet somehow familiar.” Bree Noble #1 Award Winning Women of Substance Radio & Podcast
