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

Short Bio

Philly-based Tracy Colletto has garnered comparisons to Jonatha Brooke, Carole King and Joni Mitchell for her songwriting and vocal style. Her sophomore album, Chocolate Happy Cake, shares a personal journey of transformation and soulful perseverance.  

Previously, the singer, songwriter and keyboardist earned an “Honorable Mention” in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest and was voted by listeners into the Top 20 Indie Songs of Women of Substance Radio & Podcast. She’s been nominated for Best Alt. Country Song at the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards, and nominated for "Best Indie Female Artist" by Radio-Wigwam in the UK out of thousands of other contestants. Early praise for Chocolate Happy Cake includes the singles “It’s Over,” “Complete Peace” and "Stay" being voted into the Top 20 Indie Songs, and the album garnering global radio station rotation, including terrestrial stations WXPN (Sleepy Hollow) and WSTW (Hometown Heroes). Other recent accolades include being a finalist in the 2017 Musikarmageddon Solo competition; being selected to attend Judy Stakee’s "It All Starts With a Song" Songwriting retreat and being “First Runner Up” at the Triad Music Fest Songwriter Standoff. Coming up in 2019: producing a new EP and working on a musical.
