Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections / Box Of Birds
Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections combines soulful vocals, poignant songwriting, and piano-driven pop-rock with a dash of sleazy swagger and alt-country twang. In the words of one fan: Its like if Tori Amos and Lucinda Williams made out.
A veteran of the New England singer-songwriter circuit and a busy sideplayer in the Boston rock scene (St. Helena, Parlour Bells, Nate Leavitt Band, and others), Tracy first brought her bittersweet ballads and fierce anthems center stage in 2015 with the release of her first solo EP, Fiercely, produced by Nate Leavitt and featuring a host of familiar faces in Boston music.
2016's follow-up single, "Harder Girl" and the forthcoming EP is produced by Craig Small (Airport, Waltham), and features the full-time band, Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, comprised of Tracy, Small, Green, Spencer, and Tamora Gooding. Where the name 'Missed Connections' used to refer to the fact that each show featured a new set of musicianspeople Tracy had either played with on other projects, or had always wanted toit's now a fully-realized lineup (with occasional guest stars).
Box of Birds is a Boston-based indie/folk band led by Steph Durwin. It is sometimes moody, sometimes driving and melodic, but always lyrically conscious. Guitar player and harmony vocalist, Charlie Gargano, plays with excitement and soul. An array of other stringed instruments including mandolin, dulcimer, and drums are introduced by Benny Grotto. Erik Caldarone holds it all together with his solid bass poetry. The band is modular and can play as a loud folk-rock band, a stripped down acoustic full band, or a quiet acoustic duo. Their first EP, A Place On The Wall Where A Picture Used To Hang was released in 2015. This year, the band is releasing two more EPs.
