Trina Hamlin combines gentle understanding with raw emotion in a way that is, quite simply, captivating from the first note.

With a rich, powerful voice, Hamlin reveals a rare confluence of Midwestern innocence, contemplative focus, and raw passion while adding a disarmingly sharp wit in her stage banter. She seamlessly moves from guitar to piano with self accompaniment on harmonica leaving many who have seen her wondering what she can't do.

Regarded as one of the best harmonica players around, she presents a driving, sensuous rhythm in her performance reawakening audiences to the art of the instrument.

In the current climate of "sounds like" artists and "heard it before" lyrics, Trina offers an intelligent and refreshing musical experience. Her unique combination of ballads, folk-rock and blues has earned her a steady national following. Trina tours full-time throughout the US and Europe. Additionally, she is a much sought after harmonica player and percussionist, accompanying numerous nationally recognized singer/songwriters in the studio and live on stage.

Having earned a degree in professional music from Berklee College in Boston, she graduated to the club scene in New York City with the band Blue Leaves, and has gone on to write and co-produce five albums of her own. Trina was chosen as one of the "most wanted new artists" at the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival and has performed to a sold out crowd at the Newport Folk Festival in the company of Ani Di Franco, Dar Williams, and The Indigo Girls. She's performed on The Late Show with Conan O'Brien, has had her music chosen as a backdrop for the CBS TV movie Friends at Last, as well as the WB's series Dawson's Creek. Her songs have also been featured on Bravo's "Tale Lights", Lifetime's "The Things We Do For Love", MTV's "Real World",. as well as ABC Family's "Beautiful People." In addition, Trina has shared the stage with Taj Majal, Charlie Musslewhite, John Hiatt and Ricki Lee Jones, to name a few..

With unapologetic emotional freedom, Trina's songs have the unique power to mirror and evoke the obvious and unspoken realities of life and being in love.

"Trina Hamlin's music smolders sweetly just before it sets the place on fire. Add in that irresistibly twinkling grin and you've got the foundation for a wonderful time." --Marilyn Rea Beyer, WUMB Boston

"The exhilarating rawness and grooving rush of Down to the Hollow both belies the accomplished textures. . . and underscores the importance that blues and mood play in her music." --Performing Songwriter Magazine

"I have never seen anyone play harmonica like that. Neither has anyone else. Trina is truly one of the most compelling musical performers on the stage today." --Susan Werner

    Tracy Walker

    Singer-Songwriter

    Tracy has an amazing facility for finding four leaf clovers. Does that make her a lucky person? Tracy’s not entirely certain that she even believes in luck, but she clearly possesses a knack for perceiving patterns in nature that others seem to overlook. That knack extends to her musical pursuits as well and may well be the secret to her longstanding success as a contemporary singer/songwriter and the key to her third and latest album, Coetaneous Vibrations on her own label Gallimaufry Records.

    Just as palpable as her ringing alto and her estimable guitar skills, there is a blazing honesty that runs through Tracy’s work, from her 1998 debut album Naked to 2003’s All This Time, and Coetaneous Vibrations undeniably reinforces that streak. Tracy doesn’t merely write and play a song, she crafts and inhabits it, as though the songs she sings are shelters from the emotional storms of the world, and sometimes Tracy’s songs are storms themselves, raging right back at the universal tempests we all face.
