S.J. Tucker
S. J. Tucker, self-motivated singer-songwriter, poet, and writer, came flying out of the Memphis music scene in 2004, guitar in hand and voice at the ready, and her feet have hardly hit the ground since. With a siren’s voice and gale-force lyrical storytelling and style, she deftly binds together the varied elements of jazz, folk, and fairytales. No two of her concerts are the same, but S. J.'s skill, stage presence and desire for connection with her audience consistently shine through. Listeners and critics compare her guitar work to that of Emily Saliers, her vocal delivery to KT Tunstall and Joni Mitchell. The body of her recorded work spans more than twelve years and features frequent guest performances by Heather Dale, Betsy Tinney, Ben Deschamps, Alexander James Adams, and Renee Janski. S. J. often travels solo, but also shares concerts with her 3-piece band Tricky Pixie, Toronto’s Heather Dale Band, or Seattle’s Dogwood & Johnstone. When she isn’t traveling the planet singing songs, she shares a home with a very handsome wizard and three equally handsome cats, in a thoroughly enchanted forest, at the feet of the Arkansas Ozarks.
