Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections celebrate the release of their new album, Long Fuse Burning! Naomi Westwater opens.
Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections is a fierce, feminist five-piece from Boston that combines soulful vocals, poignant songwriting, and piano-driven pop-rock with a dash of sleazy swagger and alt-country twang. A veteran of the New England singer-songwriter circuit and a busy side-player in the Boston rock scene (Juliana Hatfield, Band of Their Own, Nate Leavitt Band, St. Helena), Tracy first brought her bittersweet ballads and audacious anthems center stage in 2015 with a solo EP, Fiercely, produced by Nate Leavitt. Since then the band has become a staple of the Boston music scene, featuring such in-demand Boston players as Stud Green (Humble Tripe), Tamora Gooding (Gene Dante & the Future Starlets, Axemunkee), Mike Oram (Abbie Barrett Band, Eric Salt & Electric City, Cujo, Andrea Gillis Band), and Sam Spencer (Sera Del Fuego, Milling Gowns). In 2017, they earned a spot in the Boston Rock & Roll Rumble, and a Boston Music Award nomination for Video of the Year for their single, "Color the Air". The band is committed to using music for social good, and proud to be affiliated with organizations including Girls Rock Campaign Boston, Mass Trans Political Coalition, and Yes All Women Boston.
On June 13, Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, celebrates the release of their first full-length album, Long Fuse Burning, at the Burren Backroom Series. The album was produced by Ed Valauskas at Q Division Studios and Craig Small (Q Division, A Small Studio, Mortal Music, Henley Row) and funded through fans, friends, and family via MusicSpace. It features the guest talents of Juliana Hatfield and Josh Kantor (organ player for Boston Red Sox) and photography and art design by Jenny Bergman (Secret Bureau of Art & Design).
