"Tracy Jane Comer's sparkling acoustic folk is reminiscent of classic balladeers like Joan Baez, complete with lyrics that combines social consciousness with personal issues. But Comer's willingness to expland her sound with such elements as harp, dulcimer, and percussion gives her songs a depth that many folkies lack."

-The Onion

"Comer has been compared to Joni Mitchell, Dar Williams and other well-known talents. The comparisons are well deserved as Tracy is a versatile vocalist who writes compelling, visual songs..."

- Laura Turner Lynch, Kweevak’s Tracks (Kweevak.com)

"... a well-judged blend of ballads, instrumentals and harder-edged moments, featuring some genuinely first-rate writing and production…exceptionally well done…I can honestly say that this will be getting a healthy number of repeat plays…"

- Jimbo, Music Shopper Forum (Based in UK)

"…Tracy’s lyric writing is very clever - she paints with words using light and shade most effectively…An excellent musician and writer - it would be good if she could climb aboard a jumbo and visit these shores sometime!"

- Dave Taylor, for Music Maker Magazine (UK)

"Comer’s thoughtful, intelligent and sometimes humorous songs, coupled with her clear, honest voice and heartfelt presentation, are a delight to the ears and offer a refreshing and satisfying musical alternative."

- The Clayton (NC) News-Star

"There is not a bad track on this CD [Quietly There]…one of the best acoustic albums out there."

-Eric Cohen, WAER-FM, Syracuse NY

"Second Wind is an impressive achievement…Throughout the disc, Tracy shows off a deft touch on the guitar and good use of cello, hammered dulcimer and various percussion instruments. Her voice may be the best instrument though, always well-toned and showing a nice melisma that isn't overused…"

- B Section (Madison Songwriters Group)
