"I got into San Diego State. So that's why I moved from Denver to San Diego. When I moved, I road-tripped with all my stuff. My buddy came along, and we stopped at the Grand Canyon on the way there cause it was in route. We were hiking one of the days, and I was in my Birkenstocks, which I usually wear...cause they're awesome. He was barefoot 'cause that's just the kind of person he is. Loves bare feet. When we were done, both our feet were really dirty, and he was cracking up. He was making jokes about it. And then we got kind of serious because he's a very philosophical sort of thinker. So he says "Yo, dirty feet equals open mind," cause you're traveling and you're meeting people and experiencing different things...and I said "I'm gonna make that into a song." -Trace Jory on his single, "Dirty Feet."
Currently living in Nashville, TN, Trace has lived a colorful life full of music and movement from one place to the next. Planning to make the most of Nashville, Trace has a goal of submitting his songs to all of the publishing companies in the city during the down time from his career as a master leveled in-home Psychotherapist. His style is reminiscent of Jack Johnson with a Southern California Singer/Songwriter vibe, and Nashville Offbeat strongly recommends that you give his album, "Borrowed People," a listen and go see Trace perform live around town!

I love how stripped down this song is. In a world full of over-production and being as loud as you can, “Sidewalk” is an easy-breezy breath of fresh air.
“What’d You Think” was performed, recorded, and shot live on Delmarva Life TV in Maryland earlier this year. I found their performance to be full of passion, emotion, and life.
For instance, the band laments the trials and tribulations of dating a vegan: …
You’re in the sky, grazing the moon with your hands, rearranging stars, and smiling wistfully. This is where my mind takes me when I hear “Are You The Girl” by Kira Hooks, just released on April 17th, 2018.
With a little bit of sass, blues, and rock n’ roll, Lauren Anderson is bringing us a song reminiscent of early Grace Potter. Released March 30th, “The Game” is a head-banger that will pump you up and empower your day!
Released on April 17th, I find “Body Language,” to be timeless, sexy and beautifully produced, and think that you will too.
Capturing the essence of drama, the pain of heartbreak, and the freedom of letting go, “Strangers” is a beautifully written song about the romantic tragedy of losing a part of your identity in someone else.
He’s waiting for a call from someone in an emptiness that extends beyond his physical being.
One of my favorite songs on the album, “Just Wanna Meet You”, puts into words the longing we all feel to find someone to live our lives with. The idea that there’s a person out there meant just for you is one that brings comfort to all the hopeless romantics of the world.
The video features the band playing in Somer’s garage/rehearsal space, cut with kaleidoscope-like outdoor and driving scenes, giving an overall feeling of psychedelic displacement and trippiness (you may want to break out the sticky-icky for this one, gang).
