Tracy Lyons has just signed an agreement with South Bay Music Group who will represent the singer-songwriter’s music for placement into film, television shows, movie trailers, commercials and video games. South Bay Music Group founder Seth Berg states, “We are very excited to have Tracy on board and we look forward to seeking out music placement opportunities.”
Since 2001, Tracy has written and released two critically acclaimed albums – 2002’s debut album ‘Surrender’ followed by 2006’s ‘I Will’ which contained “Save Me,” a powerful environmental music video on YouTube that has captured over 600,000 plays to date.
Tracy Lyons' latest song "These Days" is the first single from her upcoming third album release entitled 'Mercury Rising.' Against the backdrop of economic and environmental threats, "These Days" is about being out of control, scared and feeling alone. The song was produced by Juno winner Greg Kavanagh and mixed by Grammy winner Ed Cherney. Tracy just came off the road with Everclear, promoting "These Days" and continuing her outreach about the deteriorating global environment, its insidious damage to health, and urgent need for action.
South Bay Music Group works to acquire music synchronization rights for film, television shows, movie trailers, commercials, recordings and video games. South Bay Music also represents a wide array of contemporary acts in the film and television licensing world. Founder Seth Berg is a 15 year music industry veteran, with 8 years as the head of Film & TV Music at EMI-Capitol Records in Los Angeles. He started South Bay Music Group in 2003 to provide artists, writers, publishers and record companies of all sizes targeted marketing focus for synchronization opportunities.
I’m back home and it feels good, but already, I miss being on the road with Everclear, which was an absolute blast! Everyone associated with Everclear was fantastic to us. As well, the Paper Tongues were an exciting new band to be with. We were thrilled to be part of a group of bands who were embraced by true music fans at every stop. We so appreciated the amazing response and support, particularly during these difficult times.
Last Wednesday’s show was the highlight to a tour full of memorable venues and enthusiastic fans from the East Coast. We drove thousands of miles, starting in New York City and traveling south to through Virginia and North Carolina, then north through Vermont and Canada, taking in most of New England. Our last show was just outside of Boston, at Patriot Place in Foxboro, Massachusetts…home to the New England Patriots. The “Showcase Live” theatre was a stellar venue which was filled to capacity with fans who were into the music from the very start. What a great time we all had!
Now that I have a break before my next tour, I will resume finishing my third album which, all being well, will be out sometime in the New Year. While on tour, we released one of the new songs from the album, “These Days,” available on iTunes, which has received some attention after our radio station visits. People seem to identify the new song, which is a reflection of the difficult times we are all currently facing. I hope you like it.
Well, that’s all for now. Thanks again for your incredible support.
All the best,
Hello from Maryland,It's raining madly in Towson and about 25 degrees less than normal. Certainly climate change is having an effect everywhere. Today, we are all locked up in our rooms looking forward to tonight's performance. The break is good at this point...we have been going at a crazy pace and it feels great to slow down for a moment.Being on the road with Everclear has been a fantastic experience so far. We feel very lucky to be touring during these difficult times and are so grateful to everyone who are coming out to support us. Looking forward to the next few shows and catching up with you later.Bye for now, Tracy
Here we are in Long Island after a rather lengthy but beautiful drive from Burlington Vermont. It was amazing to see the fall colors this time of year, and even more amazing to have left behind snow. In one day, we went from 36 degrees to 62…quite a change.
The people in Vermont were great, and like all of our other stops, intensely into the music. Tonight we play at the Crazy Donkey in Long Island and tomorrow at the Living Arts Theatre in Philadelphia. Hopefully, we will continue to connect musically with everyone…in the end, that’s all that counts.
Signing off for now,
