I started a quest to find terrific blues music and incredible musicianship when I was just a little kid. I also have a tremendous appreciation of fine musical instruments and equipment. One of my greatest joys all of my life was sharing my finds with my friends. I'm now publishing my journey. I hope that you come along!

Tracer was voted third place in Planet Rock’s “Best New Band” listeners’ poll. Over the past year Planet Rock has played the singles Too Much, Devil Ride, and Spaces In Between – all taken from Tracer’s critically acclaimed debut album Spaces in Between.
Tracer has captured the excitement and adrenalin rush of rock’n’roll. Their sound embodies the same raw dynamics and edge to that of Alice In Chains, Soundgarden, Queens of the Stone Age and Black Sabbath.  The band recently recruited new bass guitarist, Pat Saracino, who replaced original member Leigh Brown.
With the release of Spaces in Between, Tracer has attracted rave reviews and interviews in Classic Rock (New Band of the Month), Total Guitar, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Guitarist, Fireworks and Powerplay. Their video for Too Much has attracted over 100,000 YouTube views.
In the tradition of 3-piece rock bands like Rush and Muse, Tracer’s sound is the audio equivalent to Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now set inside the eye of an unstoppable hurricane.
Hailing from Adelaide, South Australia, Tracer embrace a sonic sledgehammer sound steeped in epic guitars, thunderous riffs and raw, uncompromising vocals. Their Australian blend of 90’s stoner and 70’s classic rock continues to win them new fans and turn heads.
When Tracer supported Royal Republic on their 2011 European tour, it soon became evident that Tracer was the band to watch. When the UK’s premiere classic rock radio station, Planet Rock, started playing the band’s rock anthem Too Much, listeners responded, and posted messages on the Too Much YouTube video wall by saying, “Planet Rock brought me here.” 

Rising from the ashes of blues prodigy band The Brown Brothers in 2004, Michael (vocals, guitar) and Leigh Brown (vocals, bass) teamed up with drummer Andre Wise to form Tracer. 
The following years have seen the trio find success with two independent releases; two international tours, including support slots for Little Red, Children Collide, The John Steel Singers and Cassette Kids.
Following a debut European tour in late 2009, Tracer returned overseas in September 2010 to take a coveted showcase slot at Germany’s PopKomm Music Conference in Berlin. The band embarked on a string of dates throughout Germany, Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK, taking time off only to sign a record deal with Cool Green Recordings, a sub label of the Mascot Label Group.

Upon returning to Adelaide, the band headed straight into the studio, and recorded what was to be their debut album, Spaces in Between, released October 2011.
With a sound reminiscent of 90′s grunge/stoner rock mixed with the everlasting bravado of 70s classic rock, Tracer is a driving, sonic sledgehammer of massive guitars, clever hooks and raw uncompromising vocals.
Forming out of the ashes of blues prodigy band The Brown Brothers in 2004, Michael (Vocals and guitar) and Leigh Brown (Vocals and Bass) teamed up with drummer Andre Wise to make Tracer.
With two independent releases, two international tours and now a record contract under their belt, Tracer is a band that takes every little chance, every crazy idea, and commits everything they have to it.
During 2008 and 2009 Tracer took on an extensive touring schedule with multiple trips to Melbourne, a string of successful Adelaide shows including a capacity crowd at the Australian album launch for their second critically acclaimed mini-album “L.A.?”

2009 also saw the band share the stage with Little Red, Children Collide, The John Steel Singers and Cassette Kids among others. In late 2009 Tracer set off and toured Europe for three and a half months taking in Germany, the Netherlands, U.K., Denmark, Switzerland and Czech. Tracer also toured as part of The Great Australian Wave (as a showcase at PopKomm in Germany).
Upon returning from Europe the band got busy writing new songs and developing their live show. Demand from overseas led the band to recording 3 new songs to compliment the release of ‘L.A.?’ in Europe. ‘L.A.?’ was met with countless praising reviews in German magazines and an expression of interest from Mascot Records in the Netherlands.
Due to the success of the 2009 European tour and an increasing demand from overseas, Tracer played Europe once more with a showcase performance at Germany’s new format PopKomm Music Conference in Berlin. From this performance the band set off on a string of dates throughout Germany, Czech, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the UK.
The band released their debut LP via Mascot’s Cool Green Recordings on October 3rd 2011. Following the release of the album, they toured the UK and Europe as support to Royal Republic.
In 2011, their single “Too Much” was A-listed on Planet Rock Radio in the UK for three months.  The band generated over 50,000 views for their Too Much video on YouTube.  In December 2011, Planet Rock A-listed Tracer’s critically acclaimed second single “Devil Ride”. By March, Planet Rock A-listed the title track “Spaces In Between”.
Due to popular demand, Tracer returned to the UK and Europe for their first headline tour in April 2012. On this tour, Leigh Brown was replaced by new bassist Pat Saracino.
To coincide with the April UK tour, Tracer released their debut mini album “LA?” in the UK for the very first time (the record was originally released in Australia in 2009 to critical acclaim).
In April 2013, the band will release their follow-up album to Spaces In Between.  The album will be produced by Kevin Shirley (Led Zeppelin, Iron Maiden, Slayer, Silverchair, Cold Chisel).
