Tracy Lee Nelson (Luiseno/Diegueno of the Wassuk Clan and Duro Family) enrolled tribal member from the La Jolla Indian Reservation, emerges from the San Diego County, California area with a groundbreaking new perspective of the Blues; a Native American's point of view. This Southern California premiere Native American artist has traveled as far as New York City to Seattle, Washington to New Mexico and is sweeping the country with his hard hitting perspective of reservation life. Tracy's unique voice, original lyrics and Blues guitar work comes straight from the heart, bellowing out stories and issues that should have been spoken of long ago. Twenty-eight years of experience has given Tracy the honor of being mentioned in Native People Magazine as one of the finest up and coming Native Artists of 2003. Tracy's variety and playing styles range from the traditional Delta sounds of the Blues (Mesa Grande) to the basics of Rock and Roll Blues (Rez Rider). His masterful guitar work, electric slide and traditional acoustic blues is something that all true Blues lovers will enjoy.
