Tracy Bonham built a reputation as a “badass rocker” with the debut of “Mother, Mother,” a powerful anthem that made it to #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative Rock” charts. The song and her “The Burdens of Being Upright” album were nominated for two Grammy awards and led to arena tours with Aerosmith and the Blue Man Group.
But in March 2020 when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down live music across the world, Tracy launched Melodeon. The new enterprise is aimed at teaching a younger audience she lovingly calls “young music enthusiasts.” Inspired by Sesame Street, Electric Company and School House Rock, she created an innovative, music education curriculum for pre-school children. In April 2021, Tracy released her first children’s album,Young Maestrosalong with a series of music videos.
