Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife deliver a shimmering indie Americana sound, combined with McNeil’s Canadian roots.
The powerhouse outfit received critical praise around the country following their new release You Be The Lightning, released through Cooking Vinyl Australia - home to such luminary songwriters as Lucinda Williams, Patty Griffin and John Prine.
With high radio rotation for singles Catch You and Not Like A Brother, You Be the Lighting was made Feature Album on Double J, PBS FM and 2SER and was followed by a coveted ARIA nomination for 'Best Blues and Roots Album’. Capping off the run of accolades, they won 'Best Country Album' at the Music Victoria Awards and received a nomination for the prestigious Australian Music Prize.
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.
“An essential chapter of Australian alt-country and one of the first truly great records of 2020.” Dan Condon, Double J
"So many of these songs sound familiar, steeped in a sound that references Fleetwood Mac, Gram Parsons and that point on the highway where country meets soul." ★★★★ Chris Familton, The Music.com
