Hello! I'm Tracy Hannemann. Thank you for visiting my website. I hope you get to know me a little better from what you hear and see as you explore through my site. Instead of doing the usual bio, I decided to tell you about myself and my experience in a different way. I hope you enjoy.
My love for singing and performing has been inside of me since I can remember. I don't own this gift, but I am a vessel through which it flows. I'm honored to share it with all those who are listening.
I've studied jazz at the WI Conservatory of Music for 3 years under a wonderful teacher named Martha Artis. What a woman! Martha had 25 years of experience on the road as a single woman singing jazz and 27 years experience teaching at the Conservatory. She is the reason I am able to understand music theory and communicate as a musician. I also studied opera at UW-Eau Claire and have classical vocal training as well.
I am currently performing with my band, Powered By Five and with Cold Sweat and the Brew City Horns. While singing for many years with the Eddie Butts Band, I had the pleasure of opening for such national acts as Heart, Blues Traveler, Pat Benatar, Kool & The Gang, Huey Lewis & The News, Brian Setzer, KC & the Sunshine Band, Jeffrey Osborne, the Neville Brothers, and many others.
I recently had the pleasure of singing solo with a 10 piece orchestra opening for Bob Newhart. What an honor! I perform also as a DUO with both the incredibly talented Theo Merriweather and Kostia Efimov for private parties and clubs, such as the WI Club, Milwaukee Athletic Club, The Packing House, ZIN and the Delafield Hotel. I have performed with private party bands, North Coast Orchestra, Velocity, Platinum and Chicago's MWO. I am a professional jingle singer and voice over talent. I also record lead and background tracks for artists original music. Please listen to samples on this website.
I have acting training from Susan Schoenfeld through UWM-outreach and on-camera training with Kate Frisina. Formerly with the Ford/Aria Talent agency, I now use these skills in my work as a free lance talent. I am a lifestyle and print model and an on camera spokesperson talent doing industrial, website video and film work. Some of the companies include Miller, Harley Davidson, Simplicity, GE Healthcare, Mills Fleet Farm, S.C. Johnson, Walgreens, TAPPI and iRig/IK Multimedia. Currently, I am an on camera spokesperson for KCS International Inc/Cruisers Yachts. Please stop, look and listen to my work samples on my website. NEW SAMPLES LISTED BELOW!!
