Jill Tracy is a goth rock cabaret singer-songwriter and pianist. Like latter-day Marianne Faithfull and Marlene Dietrich, Tracy knows her ouevre and her audience-it would appear she lives the life of which she sings and isn't just playing dress up (her wan visage would fit nicely onto one of Tim Burton's storyboards). Though it's been suggested she hints at everything from Eric Satie to the the Cure, with her ragtime upright piano and a voice that slays as soon as it soothes, Tracy doesn't really sound like anyone but herself-though she might just be who Marilyn Manson turns into when he grows up.
