Everything But The Girls Tracey Thorn With Tinsel and Lights
December 20, 2013 - This week on a special holiday edition of Conversations from the World Cafe, Tracey Thorn joins host David Dye in the studio.
Tracey Thorn started her music career in the 1980s, first with Marine Girls, and then with her husband DJ Ben Watt in the incredibly popular Everything But the Girl.
Her voice has been on recordings by The Style Council, Massive Attack, and the Go Betweens, among others.
December 24, 2012 - When veteran U.K. singer-songwriter Tracey Thorn decided to put together her own Christmas album — a project she'd been pursuing for several years — she opted for a slightly less traditional approach. The Everything but the Girl singer's new album, Tinsel and Lights, has only one very familiar holiday tune, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas." The rest of the record is a mix of Thorn's original work and traditional songs that, while still written in the holiday spirit, aren't as well-known as the songs we hear in every shopping mall throughout the season.
