“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.”

C. S. E. Cooneyblackgate.com

“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.”

J.’s witchy wit and whimsy carry you away to kingdoms unknown!  Neither of these Arkansas-born songwriters can imagine life without music, and they don’t want you to have to do that, either.  Join us at EWF for fierce original songs from two Glamazon Witchy Warrior Queens on piano, guitar, hand drums, and bass.  S. J. and Renée have performed and traveled together for many years, and they can’t wait to see you–EWF will mark some of their first new shared adventures on tour this decade.  Our splendid fellow performers include Primal Rhythm, Soolah Hoops, Brian Henke, and the one & only Frenchy & the Punk!

Join two of our favorite sassy song-sisters for something of the celestial and the spooky, blended together for a single night! Let S.

Costumes optional, enchantment guaranteed. Exclusive downloads and more assured!

I’ll also stick around to help Renée with the hybrid online Day of Remembrance service on October 30 at UU Fellowship of Fayetteville. Join us (masked) in person or online: https://www.uufayetteville.org/

And that’s all I’ve got between now and Halloween, except that maybe, just maybe I’ll be ready to release the official music video for “Alchemist Eyes” as well as getting the song released as a single on all the big streaming platforms! If I manage that before Halloween, I’ll post right away!
