On Friday June 4, one of Australia's best up-and-coming female vocalists and recording artists, Tracey Arbon will release her latest single, ‘Life Goes On’. The single tells a heartfelt message whilst exploring the loss of losing someone you love. After releasing her critically acclaimed debut album, ’Colours’ in the late nineties, Tracey fell into motherhood and was blessed with two beautiful girls. All was going to plan until her mother was diagnosed with a grade 4, brain cancer - the worst kind. Being told her mother only had six to twelve months to live Tracey dropped everything until in June 2007, her mother passed away with her by her side. “I felt so helpless during her fight and, after it was over, I was totally lost. I really only found myself again through my singing and songwriting. It was all I knew I could do. It also hit home that until you experience something so close to you, something so devastating, you can only imagine the pain associated,” she says. “I’m finally ready to return to music!” Tracey, whose voice will not be put into a box, can sing anything from classical to rock with her amazingly powerful voice. In the past she has taken her songwriting inspiration from the great Carol King and now her current inspiration, Michael Buble. Craig N Pearce of Drum Media says "For every singer who makes it to the top of the charts, there are hundreds who never get near the hallowed ground of number one. And for every singer who does get there, very, very few of them are destined to be remembered in the same breath as Mahalia Jackson, Chaka Khan or Aaron Neville. While Adelaide born, Sydney resident Tracey Arbon might not be bold enough to believe she will one day keep such reverend company, in one sense she already does." The single ‘Life Goes On’ will be available from itunes and record shops nationally. * * *ENDS * * * For media interviews, photographs or a review single please contact: ACR Communiqu HolidayGoddess.com - creating a buzz! 2010-05-31T01:38:54Z holidaygoddess-com-creating-a-buzz Holidaygoddess.com is the Internet's freshest female-friendly travel website and it was recently voted site of the month by Time Out Singapore.
