Where: Belmont Sportsmans Club
When: Sunday April 10, 2005

A CAREER in music was always on the cards for Tracey Coster. Her father, Stan Coster , was a prolific songwriter and Tracey has also proved to be a very capable songwriter and performer. in her own right. Coster began her journey at 13 when she announced to her family that she planned to become a country singer.

From her adolescent dream, Coster has evolved into a professional and successful performer.

She has four albums to her credit and all have produced a number of hit songs and taken her to the finals of the Toyota Golden Guitar Awards. Her latest album is titled Coster Country and has been a special project for Coster as it is a tribute to her late father. ``I really wanted to do an album that would showcase the remarkable talent of this man,'' Coster said.

``Choosing the material was a nightmare in itself, as for every great song that made the cut there were at least another dozen equally as good that didn't.'' ``In the end, I think we've come up with a really good cross-section of his work.'' Coster enlisted some of the biggest names in the country music scene to collaborate on the album, performing duets with John Williamson, Adam Harvey, Lee Kernaghan and Anne Kirkpatrick. It also features a special duet with her father thanks to the magic of technology and production by long-time Slim Dusty collaborator Rod Coe. Coster will perform at Belmont Sportsman's Club on April 10.
