Participation
I Voted for Tracy Klas, as she is probably the most professional and multi-talented musician of this group of about 60 or so

Review
If it was just Tracy Klas, Sallie Ford, and Pilar French at the Lillith, I'd be there listening to their entire catalog. Hoping their fingers held up to the challenge. Tracy, I know has written probably 1000's of songs, so that would be quite the catalog. To be perfectly honest, there was a lot of crap to choose from in the Ourstage.com pole for Lillith. I listened to each artist thoroughly and reviewed their online persona as well. I'm very disappointed in the female representation of Portland music right now, and I'm speaking facetiously to an extent of course. As I know The Lillith Fair isn't an accurate representation of all female acts in Portland.

Critique
The bands that are good have weak vocalists, the bands that are mediocre have decent vocalists. Most of the music is poorly produced, and less than half of the artists have websites. I practically discredit an artist if they consider Myspace as a valid sales portal or presentation for their talents. If an artist has multiple access points via the web, I say "Sure... go ahead and have a Myspace portal". But if it's the only way a fan can get a hold of an artist's work, the artist has much more work to do IMO

Conclusion
I'm glad you're able to distinguish yourself from the noise Tracy. No offense to the other artists but seriously, 90% of the songs start with acoustic guitar strumming. "Thirst" is included, but it changes up quite nicely within 15 seconds after the intro, so I forgive you ;)

P.S
Anyway Tracy, you are a class act, and it's too bad Portland has such a lame music industry currently. I still think you're a diamond in the rough. And I'm happy with it staying that way, providing you are happy and can continue to monetize yourself. Even if just a little to pay expenses and continue producing great works. Keep singing and recording your music! Hopefully I can catch up with you at Tabor Theater Stage this Fri

Disclaimer
Sorry about the blunt criticism. "Thirst" (the song currently posted on the voting pole) is a great song, and is excluded from the majority of the above comments as it has a professional dynamic song structure. The production quality is noticeably better as well.

Google it
Also when I Google "Tracy+Klas" I have multiple options for purchasing music and other cool gear, this is a huge plus as a fan, and everyone should take note of Tracy's keen ability to market herself.

Notes
"Flower Child" might be a wonderful theme song for Tom Fest if I'm interpreting it correctly
