From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Tracy Anne Wormworth is a bass guitarist working for more than 30 years in the music and television industry in the United States. She is the sister of percussionist James Wormworth.[1]

Wormworth is currently playing with The B-52s, a band that she has played with on and off for 20 years.[1] She appears as an additional artist on the sixth studio album by The B-52s, Good Stuff, released in 1992. By 2008, she was listed as a full band member on their album Funplex.

She first gained notoriety as a member of the New Wave band The Waitresses.[2] Dave Hofstra was the bass player on the first album, Wasn't Tomorrow Wonderful? (even though Wormworth's picture appears in the photo on the back cover of the album). Wormworth joined the band after he quit and stayed until the band broke up in 1984.[3]

Wormworth has served as a touring bass player for Sting and Wayne Shorter as well as the B-52s and was part of the house band on The Rosie O'Donnell Show. She makes a brief appearance in the video for the B-52s' single "Is That You Mo-Dean?". She is credited as a bass player on the Lena Horne album We'll Be Together Again (1994), I Ain't Movin' (1994) by singer-songwriter Des'ree, and Head over Heels (1995) by Paula Abdul.
