Looking at the songs chosen for the debut CD from Trace Relations “Prosperity Street”, a theme emerges: Acceptance. In one way or another each song relates to accepting where we are in life, and a determination to have a good time in spite of obstacles the world has thrown our way.
Trace Relations is all of vocalist Trace Ready’s musical relations. A unique listening experience, “Prosperity Street” takes the listener on a Texas Blues Rock and Americana journey, front to back. It’s a tribute to artists and songs that influenced Trace and a showcase for many great musicians he’s had the privilege of knowing over the years.
The music, cover art and photography also reflect Trace’s transient lifestyle, having spent the past 25 years going back and forth from Dallas to San Antonio, personally and musically. The songs draw on influences from these two iconic cities and the miles of road in between.
“Prosperity Street” features seven original songs and five very distinctive cover tunes.
