With her dream band The GoodLife by her side, Canadian expat, now Australian resident, Tracy McNeil has delivered her finest release yet with her fourth studio album Thieves. Ten songs written across three countries – the album traverses the emotional landscape of loss, the elusiveness of time and the thrill of new beginnings.
Co-producer and engineer Shane O’Mara has applied a magical dose of Californian shimmer to the album. Driving drum tracks and exquisite Lauren Canyon-esque vocal harmonies hark back to the halcyon days of late 70’s LA country rock. The result is an album that begs repeated listens, proving yet again just why McNeil is held in such high regard by her peers and critics.
After a sell-out Melbourne launch, Tracy McNeil & The GoodLife are hitting the road for a run of shows in New South Wales, Queensland, regional Victoria and South Australia.
