“Tucker is not only fantastic; she’s 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 engine…Tucker has a knack – no, a genius – for weaving old ways with new.”

“S. J. Tucker sounds like no one else out there.  I’m not sure if she is fairy, shape-shifter, otherworldly, or just a super intelligent, super perceptive young woman…Critics have compared her voice to Joni Mitchell and Tori Amos, her guitar style to Emily Saliers. I believe she is a complete original coming straight from Neverland where Magick is real.”

2018 Tiny Desk Video!

Apr 7, 18

I forgot to crow about this when I posted it, so here it is!  NPR wrote earlier this week to let me know that my entry was approved. Do check out as many entries as you can in the Tiny Desk Contest; I’m in some brilliant company! 

My entries in past years have just been straight from the iPhone/iMovie, with very little embellishment.  This year, I managed to *at least* mix in separate audio for the song performance, and it turned out great!

I’m so grateful to everyone who’s left me a sweet or encouraging comment on the vid so far.  This tune really is one of my faves, and I’ve written A LOT of songs.
