“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.”

Feb 2023 shows & interviews & more!

Feb 1, 23

Blessed Imbolc/Lammas to you all today! I have two concerts this month, one  my first face-to-face show  of the year, Modern Mythicon in Gettysburg, PA (I will be masked off stage, but please let me know if you plan to be there!),  and one online  just after my birthday.  Get details! 

I’ll perform on Saturday night at Mythicon (Frenchy & the Punk + This Way to the Egress Friday night!) with Ken Om Crampton & Kindred Crow! I also have a solo concert the next day.

Once home, I get to host an  online show and documentary film screening  Feb 23 and 25! Y’all come! Your presence=my present. Let your people know, please. This one is very special to me, with a co-star y’all haven’t yet seen me side by side with.

Interviews & Stuff

New interviews are happening! Soon you’ll hear me on the  Wordcrash  show with SatyrPhil Brucato and host Megan Alnico – turns out I am the first guest of the show who works primarily as a musician!

Wordcrash invites its guests to play brain games around their fandoms of choice. We had a blast! I’ll let you know when my episode comes out.

Just released this week is my interview on Everybody Speaks Music, hosted by my buddy Mojo Kemp & his guitar guru Kris Schulz, two great gents who asked great questions and held me in safety to talk about my triumphs and my struggles, alike.  Listen here  or wherever you enjoy podcasts.

A quick note about this one: Mojo chose to include the original version of my song “Lady Vagabond” at the end of the episode, a recording which includes the g-slur in the lyrics. He did not check with me before making this choice. I have rewritten the verses concerned which I created in my ignorance all those years ago, and I have plans to re-record them. I only ever perform the updated lyrics nowadays, but the fact that an updated recording isn’t yet available is entirely my fault. I apologize. I repent of my ignorance and continue to work to rectify it. Feel free to stop the podcast before the song begins.

(Good) Trouble at Home

If you’re so inclined and you have the juice for this, please consider following & keeping up with  inTRANSitive Arkansas  on social media and online. They are  helping us fight  against horrid anti-LGBT legislation (namely SB43) on its way to our new governor’s desk right now, sharing call and email scripts of what to say to the ARLEG in defense of our LGBT community here and offering extensive information on this year’s legislative sessions on their website. They are a source of hope and strength for me and for many others. I appreciate it.

Please also consider a donation to  Elevated Access , my current favorite flying allies of reproductive rights & access to care.
