Biography

Born in Homestead, Florida and raised in southern California, Grammer comes from a musical family. Cousin Leo Fortin played double trumpets in Lawrence Welk’s band, while her grandmothers and mother played keyboards and accordion. But it was her guitar-playing father who was her first true inspiration.

“When Dad used to get out his lap steel and electric guitars, we’d ... Read more in Amazon's Tracy Grammer Store

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The Verdant Mile is a seven song all-acoustic EP with two originals and five beautifully chosen covers. The title track is a poignant yet upbeat meditation on loss and survival, written by Grammer to address the 2002 passing of her musical partner, Dave Carter. VM also includes a rollicking fiddle medley and lovingly-performed covers of songs by such respected artists as Kieran Kane and Carole King. VM was recorded live in an Oregon studio over two days, and features Jim Henry on mandolin, mandola, dobro and vocals.

Review

Grammer wraps her rich, ethereal voice around Neil Diamond's Solitary Man, evoking Joan Baez in her prime, while a lovely ray of hope rings out in Emory Gordon and Joe Henry's When I Reach the Place I'm Goin'... Classic Americana. --Dirty Linen

Format: Audio CD
With THE VERDANT MILE Tracy Grammer and Jim Henry released the first in an ongoing series of mini-CDs. Each CD has at least one original tune by either Grammer, Henry, or Dave Carter, but mostly consist of covers.

The original in this case is the Grammer penned "Verdant Mile", a song about carrying on after Dave Carter's death, and the solace she found walking through a field near their home in Oregon. It's a beautiful and moving song and stylistically similar to the music on FLOWER OF AVALON.

The two best covers on this CD are easily THIS DIRTY LITTLE TOWN by Kieran Kane and SOLITARY MAN by Neil Diamond. Yes that Neil Diamond - Grammer will blow you away by how makes these songs her own.

The other songs are good, but these are the three that keep bringing me back.

Tracy's voice, emotion & music move my soul! I had 2 of her & Dave Carter's other albums so wasn't sure how I'd like this but I love it!
