TraceiAlthough Tracei’s broad South African accent is so distinctive, she was born to English & Australian parents in Melbourne.

From a musical family, Tracei’s early days were performing with her two brothers for events.  From only 2 years of age singing Brahms lullaby with her mother and a passion for music from a young age, she took piano and recorder lessons at school and self-taught herself to play guitar and later took private flamenco and classical guitar lessons.

So a well-rounded musical education but settled on piano as her instrument of choice and now performs with electronic keyboard.

Performing in various bands in Johannesburg as a singer or keyboard player, she performed at many venues and functions. While married to singer & Jazz trumpet player Eddie Payne, she travelled as a music duo in various South African Casinos – most with residencies.  While traveling, Tracei continued to study music and achieved many certificates to add to her arsenal.

Her musical knowledge covering pop, jazz, rock, classical, Latin with everything from appreciation to songwriting to programming and arranging layers in the recording studio.

Since Tracei has returned to Australia, she has had to re-establish herself. Regrouping and getting herself known locally is her main goal at present. Tracei’s entire life has been the music that has provided so much pleasure to so many.

Be entertained by  Tracei  as she covers a wide range of music both upbeat ( popular songs, rock n roll, singalongs,  soft rock & blues ) and laid-back ( well known popular songs, standards, bossanovas and jazz).
