For over 20-years, this smooth-talking charlatan has mastered the art of fleecing independent gospel record labels (and their artist) out of serious money. Underneath all the hype, she’s nothing more than an overrated, overpriced mountebank, who takes credit for getting radio airplay for artist, who are already famous, and selling hope to unknown artist, who are trying to make their mark in the industry.
According to several erstwhile clients, Tracey passes herself off as a God-fearing radio and marketing executive, who represents the best interest of her clients, while furtively and opportunistically preying on their eagerness to establish themselves in the industry.
Her outrageous fees can range anywhere from two to four thousand dollars a month, and consist of a futile e-blast with no consistent follow ups whatsoever.

Tracey’s greed is quite salient. She overstocks her clients, and outsources them to other entities–all for the sake of gobbling up as much money as she possibly can, with no real regard for quality service.
Despite all of the rhetoric about her love and devotion to Jesus, her approach to business is more compatible with the Don King school of subterfuge. According to a reputable industry insider, Tracey has even attempted to blackball several of her past clients for past discrepancies.
Needless to say, Tracey represents everything that is wrong with the industry, but fortunately,, people are starting to organize and combat her blatant form of subversiveness. Several sources has confirmed that a special meeting has been scheduled for late June, to organize a boycott against Tracey Artis. One of the organizers from Ohio, says their efforts are long overdue and much needed to restore integrity back into gospel music.
