S. J. Tucker, self-motivated singer-songwriter, poet, author and actress, 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. Come Monsters, Misfits, and Mythpunks! Come Witches, Pirates, and Literati! Come Dreamers fair and Schemers foul! S. J. Tuckers got a song for you. Slinging every sort of tune from a Murder Ballad about robots and thieves to a Shapeshifters Riverboat Shanty, this steamy siren slings em all from her drumming hands, her dancing guitar, and her soaring voice.
On the road across the continent full time for a fourteenth year, S. J., called Sooj by fans and friends, deftly binds together the varied elements of jazz, folk, and fairytales in her original tunes. No two of her concerts are the same, but 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 thirteen years and features frequent guest performances by other hardworking indies. S. J. often travels solo, but also shares concerts with her 3-piece folk band Tricky Pixie, Torontos Heather Dale Band, Seattles Dogwood & Johnstone, and all-American Celtic rockers Tuatha Dea!
Tucker is not only fantastic; shes like a character out of a fantasy novel. She weaves myth and magic into her lyrics as easily as a strain of cello, a lick of something electric, the chuffing of a train engineTucker has a knack no, a genius for weaving old ways with new. -C.
