Traci Trexx Midnite Blues unveil video for track “I Want You Back”
The Traci Trexx Midnite Blues consisting of Vanity Blvd guitarist Traci Trexx on lead vocals and guitar, Anna Skoglund on bass and Tommy Viklund on drums have released a video for their track “I Want You Back.”
Trexx‘s “Biography” on Vanity Blvd’s website indicates (with slight edits):
“I don’t know where I should start my musical journey. I think it started early when my evil father bought an old electric guitar and an old depleated amplifier from the seventies from my uncle. It was kept in my father’s garage and I was under strict instructions that it wasn’t allowed to be used.
On occasions that my father was away on business, I used to break into the garage and then run off when he got home. I used to sit there and admire the guitar as if it was a really cool space ship with lots of buttons on it! I thought the whammy bar was the thing to fire missiles with!
I started taking guitar lessons at Junior High and at Christmas one year, I got a present from my dear mother…. I opened it and it was a collection CD with Jimi Hendrix. She said that this was the best guitar player EVER… and she wanted me to play like him.
I went mad, thinking “What kind of stupid sixties crap is this?”, but I put it in my stereo and pressed “play”…. I nearly fainted..I had been touched by the hand of God and was blessed by rock n roll at that moment, like in the “Blues Brother’s” movie…. “Do you see the light???” I just screamed out “WoooooooooW” and after that moment, I realized what a guitar and rock music was all about… No turning back since then…
Shortly after that discovery, my grandfather introduced me to his record collection… Showed me his old vinyls with Led Zeppelin and James Gang to name a few… It opened my senses to TOTAL massdestruction of a maxed out dose of rock n’ roll in my heart and soul.”
