On Tracy Lane, the brainchild of singer/songwriter Darryn Yates, is a modern twist on classic 80s pop rock. Schooled in the vocal stylings of Dave Pirner and Tom Petty, OTL captures the spirit of bands like The Cars while revising their retro sound with driving guitars and lush vocal arrangements. On Tracy Lane has opened for acts such as American Hi-Fi, Local H, Avril Lavigne, Butch Walker and shot a music video in Los Angeles last year for their song “Back To Maybe,” featuring Lacey Chabert (Mean Girls, Party of Five). The OTL live band is Yates on vocals/acoustic guitar, Shannon Nicole – backing vocals, Rick Tschee – lead/rhythm guitar, Jerry McFarland – bass/keyboard, and Chad Shaffer on drums.

On Tracy Lane’s fans, 50,000 on their mailing list from the U.S. and abroad, have gobbled up several thousand copies of the OTL EP. The CD is in the top 10 most albums sold at the Vintage Vinyl Record Store in their hometown area. The CD features the single “Better Again,” which can be heard at a rising number of radio stations across the country. Other songs on the EP are fan favorites “House of Mimes” and “Walk In Like DeNiro.”

The OTL EP was produced by Shock City Music, including producers Doug Firley (of Gravity Kills fame) and indie-rock veteran Chris Loesch. On Tracy Lane is quickly catching the eyes and ears of the music industry as they embark on a national tour that will surely have record labels and management companies eager to talk business.
