Tracy Shedd
Cigarettes and Smoke Machines

Tracy Shedd has a cool, soft voice and a nice sound on her new album. The yearning opener "Never Too Late" approaches a classic eighties indie sound with warm vocals and a catchy tune. "Hardest Part of Goodbye" is a soft pop song with some great melodic touches. Shedd's vocals are utterly gorgeous and remind me of Juliana Hatfield. "Not Giving Up" is a rhythmic song that puts emphasis on Shedd's sweet singing. "Go On" is a suggestive, confident song that Shedd does very well. She has a classic but not derivative indie sound, and uses it well on these intelligent, thoughtful songs. Shedd's a talented singer and this is a good album.
