“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

“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.”

Book Bard online show tonight!

Jan 14, 22

It’s been 13 years as of yesterday, January 13, since the Ravens in the Library anthology & the online #SaveOurSooj benefits, together with all the brilliant makers and musicians and authors and artists who make it happen, came to my rescue. I go days at a time without thinking about the scar, but not a day goes by that I’m not grateful.

2009 was before the ACA, let alone before we were all so accustomed to crowdfunding as its own thing. I was an indie musician with no health coverage, and the surgery I had to have could have pulled me out of my career and into a mountain of medical debt. But my community wasn’t having that.

Come see the online show tonight and help me celebrate!  Get tickets here!
