“The voice of lore at the campfire and the sharp laughter of modern myth…S. J. Tucker is songs and stories, community and wit.”-Phil Putnam
NOW PLAYING: S. J. has conjured and concocted a heavily jazz & blues flavored album called Stolen Season! Listen free, download, and order your copy!
IN THE WORKS: S. J.’s been posting new songs on her YouTube channel and recording music for a paranormal indie film, editing a new music video, and doing preliminary work on her next mythic folk record! Spring festival appearances kicked off in March with the Phoenix Phyre Festival down in Florida, and there are lots more on the horizon. View the Tour Schedule here as it fills up.
NOW AVAILABLE: Tuatha Dea & Nightsong Studios present THE GREEN ALBUM! Your download, or your purchase of the disc directly from the artists, sends a 25% donation to the Rainforest Trust! Get the album here today!

“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.”
“One of the foremost songwriters in the world of cabaret, Mythpunk, Faerie, Pagan, and general kickassery, S. J. has released over ten albums and isn’t stopping anytime soon! If you like silly, sweet, fierce, funny, magical, mythical music, then S. J. Tucker is sure to enchant you.”

Hi, fans and friends! I just got back from the first ever Caldera Pagan Music Festival, which hosted three solid days of concerts AND the release of our compilation CD The Green Album, and it was the experience of a lifetime. My gratitude and all of my high fives go out to the organizers, the community, and all of my friends and colleagues on stage and backstage. Keep your ears open for the future of that event, because CalderaFest will be back! Just wow.
I found out early this week that I get to play a set in Memphis this Saturday, at a #SemicolonProject event hosted by Underground Art in Cooper-Young! This is my only Tennessee gig until this fall.

That makes your support and attendance at the June 18 concert, which is going forward as planned, doubly important and doubly appreciated. Please join us if you can and help Mama Gina feel the love! If you cannot be there, please help us spread the word.
