Singer, songwriter and keyboardist Tracy Colletto earned an “Honorable Mention” in the John Lennon International Songwriting Contest for her song "The Promise", and early praise for Chocolate Happy Cake includes the singles “It’s Over,” “Complete Peace” and "Stay" being voted into the Top 20 Indie Songs, and the album garnering global radio station rotation, including terrestrial stations WXPN (Sleepy Hollow) and WSTW (Hometown Heroes). In addition, Tracy’s single, “The Ride,” is a recent nominee for Best Alt. Country Song at the 15th Annual Independent Music Awards. Other recent accolades include being nominated for "Best Indie Female Artist" by Radio-Wigwam in the UK out of thousands of other contestants; being a finalist in the Musikarmageddon Solo competition; and being “First Runner Up” at the Triad Music Fest Songwriter Standoff. Chocolate Happy Cake was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer and engineer Glenn Barratt. Glenn assembled the lineup of musicians, including Michael G Ronstadt (of Ronstadt Generations), well-known Philly bass player Chico Huff, and Erik Johnson and Kevin Hansen, both formerly of the charting modern rock band, Huffamoose (“Wait”). The entire cast performed with sensitive intuition, respecting Tracy’s vision for the album, and providing delicate and emotionally dynamic musical support.
