Tracy Chapman will play The NIA Academy on Sunday 13 November as part of the international Where You Live Tour in support of her new album, Where You Live. The tour will showcase the talents of a truly individual voice on the modern musical landscape. An eloquent teller of stories that are at once intimate and universal, Tracy Chapman has created a body of work that has been as consistently compelling as it is honest and uncompromising. Where You Live is Tracy Chapman’s seventh studio album. The set was co-produced by Chapman and Tchad Blake, who has lent his innovative production/mixing talent to recordings by an eclectic array of artists – among them Peter Gabriel, Pearl Jam, Tom Waits, Bonnie Raitt, Elvis Costello, Los Lobos, Randy Newman, Richard Thompson, Suzanne Vega and others. Chapman describes the songs on the album as being reflections about home, place, love and memory. Joining Tracy in the studio were guitarist Joe Gore (Tom Waits, PJ Harvey, Eels) drummer/percussionist Quinn (Paula Cole, Belinda Carlisle, Patti LaBelle, Vesta Williams) with guest appearances by musician/producer Mitchell Froom (Blake’s frequent studio partner) and Chili Peppers bassist Flea, who plays on the album’s first single, Change. Since her breakthrough performances at Nelson Mandela’s 70th birthday concert in London in 1988, Tracy has appeared frequently in support of social and humanitarian causes including Amnesty International’s Human Rights Now! Tour, the annual Bridge School benefit concerts, the Nelson Mandela Free South Africa Concert, Farm Aid, Tibetan Freedom Festival, Vote For Change, San Francisco AIDS Foundation, and many others. Most recently Tracy did a US election-season tour to benefit Driving Votes, a grassroots voter – registration campaign. Tracy’s new album marks the latest stop in a musical journey that began with her self-titled debut, released in 1988. The multi-platinum Tracy Chapman earned three Grammy Awards, and yielded the classic single Fast Car. Tracy Chapman was followed by Crossroads (1989),Matters of the Heart (1992), and New Beginning (1995). The latter proved to be another landmark for Chapman, going multi-platinum and earning Tracy her fourth Grammy Award, for the platinum single, Give Me One Reason. Entering a new musical phase in the new millennium, Tracy released the aptly titled Telling Stories in 2000 and Let It Rain in 2002. A compilation of Chapman’s work, simply called Collection was released internationally in 2001. Alongside her Grammy Awards, Tracy has earned an American Music Award, a BRIT Award, three SKC Boston Music Awards, and four Bammy Awards.
