#Growns today we wanted to drop on you a great new release from a longtime friend to GFM Tracy Cruz. Today not only marks Tracy’s latest release but she’s also celebrating a birthday so let’s make sure we give the gift that keeps on giving when it comes to great music: share! In fact if we all could share “Losing In Love” with our two thousand closest friends, I’d say that would be a nice icing on the proverbial cake.

Tracy describes “Losing In Love” as a “very intimate piano and vocal music collection filled with heartfelt lyrics and soulful arrangements.” We couldn’t agree more here at GFM HQ and we respect when an artist has the wherewithal to removal all the potential pretense and present music with only a few core elements. Not everyone is built for that kind of work. The single is from her upcoming EP H3artifacts
