Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections are a fierce, feminist five-piece from Boston, MA soulful vocals, poignant songwriting, and piano-driven pop-rock with a dash of sleazy swagger and alt-country twang.

In the words of one fan: “It’s like if Tori Amos and Lucinda Williams made out.” A veteran of the New England singer-songwriter circuit and a busy side-player in the Boston rock scene (Band of Their Own, Kay Hanley, Juliana Hatfield, Lifestyle, Nate Leavitt Band), Tracy first brought her bittersweet ballads and audacious anthems center stage in 2015 with a solo EP, Fiercely, produced by Nate Leavitt.

Since then the band has become a staple of the Boston music scene, featuring such in-demand Boston players as Stud Green (Humble Tripe), Tamora Gooding (Gene Dante & the Future Starlets, Axemunkee), Mike Oram (Juliana Hatfield, Abbie Barrett Band, Eric Salt & Electric City, Cujo, Andrea Gillis Band), and Sam Spencer (Sera Del Fuego, Milling Gowns).

In 2019, they released their first full-length album, Long Fuse Burning, described by The Deli New England as 'an indie-folk carnival for the senses.' The album was recorded at Q Division Studios and produced by Ed Valauskas with additional tracks produced by Craig Small, and earned the band Boston Music Award nominations for Singer-Songwriter of the Year (2019) and Americana Artist of the Year (2020).

Hayley Thompson-King - American Standard Time describes her work as “fuzzy as Memphis rock, scuzzy as L.A.

punk…” and AmericanaUK praises her as “a voice that can do anything.” Hayley Thompson-King explores a broad range of sounds from art music, garage rock, Americana, and psych.

She draws from her operatic training, creating “wide-reaching sonics with palpable psychodrama.” (Newsweek) Hayley’s work has been heard in film and television, including most recently the film Diary of a Teenage Girl.

She is a former member of the band Major Stars, with whom she toured nationally and recorded two albums – Motion Set (Drag City) and Decibels of Gratitude (Important Records).

Her debut solo album, Psychotic Melancholia, was lauded by Paste Magazine as “a jaw-dropping exposition that celebrates the entire cannon of rock and roll’s energy.” She’s shared bills with Jason Isbell, Andrew WK, Hurray for The Riff Raff, Frank Turner, and Jimmy Dale Gilmore and Dave Alvin among others.

In addition to her artistic work, Hayley is an Associate Professor of Voice at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA.
