TC Peart & Tracy Jane Comer
About Acoustic Alloy
NOTE: As of Sept. 2016, TC (Theresa Peart) has relocated out of state, though the group may still perform on occasion when she is in town visiting. (Tracy Jane remains in town and is active as a soloist and with other projects/groups; see www.tracyjanecomer.com for more.)
Acoustic Alloy combines the vocal and instrumental talents of TC Peart and Tracy Jane Comer, and is based in the Madison, WI area. The duo was launched in January 2012 as a spinoff from the pair's work in the long-running area band Wild Heart. Acoustic Alloy grew out of their enjoyment of singing together in the band and their love of many styles of music beyond the limitations of that band's format.
Acoustic Alloy performs in a variety of settings, large and small. Their repertoire includes some originals plus music from today's great artists such as Adele, Christina Perri, Miranda Lambert, Bruno Mars, Pink, and Jason Mraz, as well as songs from legends including, Michael Jackson, Elton John, Heart, and Indigo Girls. TC's powerhouse vocals and stage presence, Tracy Jane's award-winning instrumental skills (guitar, piano, and more), their strong harmonies and well-crafted arrangements make for a lively and engaging show.
