One of pop’s best-loved singer-songwriters, Tracey formed lo-fi cult girl group Marine Girls in 1980.
In 1981 she met Ben Watt and they formed Everything But The Girl. A year later she released acclaimed minimalist solo debut, A Distant Shore. With Marine Girls disbanded, Tracey switched focus to EBTG. From 1984 - 1999 the duo sold nine million records including their biggest hit, Missing (Remixes). She also guested with other artists, most notably Massive Attack on Protection.
After a 7-year break to raise a family, she restarted her solo career in 2007 with Out Of The Woods, followed by 2010’s Love and its Opposite produced by Ewan Pearson, a remix album in 2011 (Extended Plays 2010 - 2011) and a cover of The xx’s Night Time EP.
Her Christmas album, Tinsel and Lights - a set of alternative seasonal songs by artists including Sufjan Stevens, Randy Newman and The White Stripes plus two originals - was issued in 2012.
In 2013 Virago published her best-selling debut memoir, Bedsit Disco Queen. 2014 saw two low-key releases - the Molly Drake Songs EP and a cover of Kate Bush’s Under The Ivy.
She delivered Songs from 'The Falling' the original soundtrack for Carol Morley’s fêted 2015 debut movie, The Falling, and in 2016 delivered her second book Naked at The Albert Hall - half memoir, half exploration of the art of singing.
Since 2014 she has been a twice-monthly columnist for the New Statesman. As a singer she has also guested with John Grant, Tevo Howard and Jens Lekman.
