Western Australian blues and roots performer, Tracey Barnett, launches her new single ‘GOTTA GET OUT’ on Sunday, October 13th at The River as part of the inaugural Western Australian Guitar Festival. True to the track title, Tracey will be getting out and promoting her new single with a string of WA performances stretching from Margaret River to Broome, culminating on the main stage at the Blues in Bridgetown Festival.
With a bit of grunge, a bit of dirt and a healthy dash of push and shove, ‘GOTTA GET OUT’ is the perfect catharsis for the pressures of modern life. Driving rhythms, thumping bass combined with a sticky and infectious chorus, ‘GOTTA GET OUT’ will have you jumping out of your seat, dancing like no one’s watching and shouting ‘GOTTA GET OUT’ louder than Scott Morrison trapped in the middle of a climate change rally! Tracey’s distinctive, high-energy brand of blues and roots is perfectly executed with driving guitar rhythms, raucous lap steel, throbbing bass and fearless vocals.
Armed with acoustic guitar, harmonica and stomp box, Barnett paves her own way with a heady mix of sounds that merge effortlessly with traditional rock rhythms, blues licks and a dose of grunge, creating a fusion that’s impossible to resist. A multi-instrumentalist and dynamic performer, her powerful stage presence inspires hopefulness and pure unadulterated fun.
The Bridgetown local has been nominated for WAM Regional Artist of the Year multiple times, Winner in 2018 and on track for another win at this year’s 2019 WAM Awards. A highly recognised songwriter, Tracey has received WAM Song of the Year nominations across multiple years, as well as festival slots at WA’s biggest folk, blues and roots festivals; Fairbridge Festival, Nannup Music Festival and Blues at Bridgetown.
