“The GAIA clarinet mouthpiece was my life-changing, cartwheel-turning moment.”
The Gaia clarinet mouthpiece was life-changing from the moment I tried it. I was working so hard before but did not realize it. I knew there had to be my perfect match and I found it. It makes playing so much easier. It is super responsive, precise and beautifully crafted. It is Theo in a mouthpiece form. He has put his life, love and expertise into his work for us, the players. Thank you, Theo! You truly are a gift!
Tracy is everything that is right about that uniqueness of blending avant-gardeness with pragmatism inside of artistry. She is first a force who has stayed true to her passions armed with the discipline and extra-adaptability of any U.S. Air Force “military brat.” Through a wide variety of frequent moves and cultural exposure growing up, Tracy has developed a resilient personality, exceptional social skills and a high level of multicultural awareness which can be heard through her musical mutations. You can see from her college opera studies to her vocal jazz solo album with the power trio of drummer Peter Erskine, bassist John Patitucci and pianist Alan Pasqua, to her most current co-creation of The Vignatis with husband and guitarist, Fabrice Vignati. Together they created 2 albums; “Birth of the Gypsybilly” and “Birth of the Gypsybilly Vol. 2”. Both albums were recorded with the dynamic rhythm section of drummer Bernie Dresel and slap bassist Johnny Hatton, both from The Brian Setzer Orchestra. As a natural songwriter, Tracy continues to build their catalog to the recent tune of 125 songs written inside of 9 months. She and her writing partner and husband, Fabrice Vignati, can take your “song order” and deliver just about any style you order up. So if you are looking for songs for your artist, film, television show, commercial or trailer, they can serve up what you need. Tracy comes armed with the true gift of a highly skilled singer who revisits her nostalgic, nerdy, middle school band days by playing her prized possession, her neon-pink clarinet named Betty. She has learned well from many musical influences from Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis and Eddie Daniels to Brian Setzer, Brad Paisley and The Foo Fighters.

Q:What is your internal experience when you feel REALLY connected to the music? A:When I’m connected to the music whether it is singing, playing, writing, or recording, it’s euphoric focus. It’s very difficult to describe. It’s as though nothing else exists. The creative energy takes me to a place where I can truly be my authentic self. It’s a place that is truly in the moment.
