Tracey McLiechey: Tell Me (Relentless Records, 1999)

With a vocal tone and musical style similar to that of an early Chante Moore, here is another great find from my regular contributor and good pal Stuaaart. Mainly a very smooth album, combining facets of soft jazz, neo soul and mellow R&B flavors, the artist sadly is an obscure one but I believe she hailed from Grand Rapids, Michigan while the label itself - which is nothing to do with semi-commercial British label of the same name - was based out of Chesapeake, Virginia. No information about any of the people involved but for one of the executive producers Widzer St. Juste, who was a South Jersey-based producer of gospel, R&B and pop and active on the underground circuit in the late 90s. Many thanks again to Stuaaart for sending it my way 😉
