Tracie Young began her singing career at a mere 17 years of age, when she was discovered by Jam leader Paul Weller through a newspaper ad for his new Respond label. Young sang on the final Jam single, "Beat Surrender," and on Weller's first few Style Council singles as well. Her debut album, Far From the Hurting Kind, was released in 1984 under the name Tracie, and featured production, backing, and songwriting from Weller as well as an Elvis Costello song written especially for her, "(I Love You) When You Sleep." The album was reissued in Japan in 1996.
