“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.”

1157 Remixes are here!

Jan 24, 20

2 tracks available now via Bandcamp, and the main mix has been sighted in the Apple Music store, should be hitting Spotify & all the rest very soon if it hasn’t yet! I wrote this song in early 2015 after a nightmare, plus learning about the Doomsday Clock, and…well. Again, here we are, closer to Midnight by nearly half that. My goal & my hope is to help us process and survive our (my) worst fears with this piece and its b-side remix, rather than just poking them with a stick to stir them up.

If any of you are up for publishing a review of one or both remixes, please let me know, and let me offer you a free download in return! Podcast hosts, same offer applies. Write to me: sjtuckermusic@gmail.com

For those curious about my recording studio process with these: the main remix has better and more tasteful EQ to my ears, with the drum elements & some vocal effects rearranged just slightly. The b-side mix has barely any drum elements at all, giving the strings & things a bit more space to shine. I used a service called CloudBounce for mastering, and I think that went well.

Thank you all for listening, even to the scary things. Watch the stars and hold the light burning in your heart.
