Tracy Cupitt… Look To Your Ways Press Release… 3.4.15.

3.4.15. Poi Records release of Tracy Cupitt's debut single Look To Your Ways... PR002s Tracy Cupitt... Look To Your Ways... This is the debut single by singer songwriter Tracy Cuppitt from Glossop in Derbyshire, England. It's a cover version of a tune written by Pete Cheetham, multi-instrumentalist composer, from whose progressive classical rock composition it derives. I first heard Tracy sing a Gillian Welch tune on YouTube sometime last year. I played that tune continuously all thru the night and over the next couple of days. I was enchanted by the soft tones and colours in her voice. I met Tracy and asked her if she'd do me the great honour of recording in the Poi Spayce Ark studio. I identified with this song because of its soulful and loving sentiments and asked Tracy to come up with an arrangement that would make this song her own. She went away for a couple of months, tweaked it a little, changed the tempo and shifted the feel of the song. We recorded this in the Autumn of 2014. Simple set up. Three microphones, a guitar and Tracy singing and playing. I was sitting there with tears rolling down my face. Tracy touched me with her voice as her delivery was simple, straight up, genuine and honest. This version is the second take. I generally go with the first take of any tune I record because therein lies the magic, the Eternal Moment. So I'll revisit the first take for our future album cut. And here it is... 'Look To Your Ways' performed by Tracy Cupitt... Enjoy. Geo, March 2015.tc ltyw front tc ltyw back   Tracy Cupitt Biography I am an artist and singer songwriter based in Glossop, Derbyshire – Living amongst the natural beauty of the Peak District landscape, in the north west of England. I’d enrolled on a course in Wales because I wanted to be surrounded by nature. I began playing guitar in college, I was meant to be studying art but I think I spent more time walking in the welsh woods, teaching myself to play and discovering that I really love to sing. Someone in my art class lent me a tape of Nick Drake, and as I listened to the opening bars of Pink Moon I almost cried, I’d found something wonderful. That was many years ago now and I still find myself drawn to what I call ‘music with space’, space to relax, to breathe, to savour. In my artwork I am constantly seeking inspiration for my work; from the views around Glossop, the little town where I live, to travelling to far away places. I love the intricate shapes of leaves and plants, the vibrant colour of flowers, the delicacy of wildflowers, earl grey tea, cats, books, yoga and cheese! I was lucky enough to spend a year in Japan teaching English in 2008 and I continue to draw inspiration from my time there, you will often find cherry blossom in my artwork as I love it so much!   .........   HybridVigor...
