There's a shining star amongst us who goes by the name of Tracy Cruz. In 2005, Tracy gained national recognition with an EP entitled Illuminate Love that featured Kanetic Source, formerly of Ozomatli. Her 2008 debut album Feel'osophy was awarded three Muse's Muse Awards for "Best R&B Project of 2008", "Best Lyrics Female" and "Best R&B Single Female".
She gives us another taste with her sophomore album Universoul Symphony and leads it off with the soulful space filled ballad "Love's Galaxy". I got a big kick out of "Happy" from its upbeat funky feel that was light helps put listeners in that mood. Also Tracy takes it back to basics with the adding of school nursery rhymes, which gave me a good laugh. "Electricity" is a great tune. This is one of those songs that's ideal for the upcoming fall weather or to listen to after a days work while sipping your favorite libation.
Treat yourself to what proves to be a good second album done by a very talented artist. Universoul Symphony is available on Amazon and iTunes.
