It’s twelve tracks of Texas groove guaranteed to improve your mood. Twelve years in the making, ‘PROSPERITY STREET’ is the culmination of two divergent lifestyles where songwriter meets filmmaker, merging on the highway between Dallas and San Antonio, Texas. It features a dynamic Dallas based rhythm section and guitar prowess from San Antonio’s Kevin Lewis, plus guest appearances from Augie Meyers and Shawn Sahm of Texas Tornados, Katherine Dawn, The West Side Horns and more. Visit Trace Relations ™ official site for more information.

“South Texas Soul: The San Antonio Sound” is a documentary in production now focused on the unique music history of San Antonio and South Texas, and it’s impact on popular music of today. The documentary was started in 2008 and is being directed and produced by Dallas based filmmaker, writer and vocalist Tracy Ready. With a background of 25 years in television production and most of his life steeped in the music of south Texas, Ready is in a unique position to tell this important and compelling story of history, music and Texas.

South Texas Soul examines the influence of German, Polish and Irish immigrants in South Texas on popular music styles including Country, Tejano, Blues and Rock and Roll, from a unique perspective.

L-R: Tracy Ready and Augie Meyers at Blue Cat Studios, San Antonio, Texas, 2010

Musician Augie Meyers has taken the music of San Antonio to audiences the world over through performances and recordings dating back to the 1950’s. His long list of credits include Grammy award winning albums and extensive touring with The Sir Douglas Quintet and Texas Tornados.
Meyers’ life as the son of Polish immigrants, growing up in the musical melting pot of San Antonio, then achieving international acclaim, is a focal point of the documentary but the story begins much earlier. It follows the musical influence of East European immigrants bringing the accordion to South Texas in the 1800’s, and carries it through to the modern age.
Principal photography is nearing completion and the preview has garnered more than 18,000 Youtube views to date, showing clear interest in the story.

These shows by Trace Relations Trio and others like it are being staged to raise awareness for the film and funding to be able to complete the project. We appreciate your support.
