Sooj by Wild Hunt Photography

“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.”

Bandcamp birthdays today + Online Show Jan. 24

Jan 8, 21

Hello, friends and fans.  What a year it’s already been.

Just a quick post with two nice things in it for you:

1. Today is my husband’s birthday, AS WELL AS the birthday of our song sisters Sharon Knight and Celia Farran!  All these birthday bards are on Bandcamp along with me!  I invite you to honor their existence by checking out their work and making a purchase if you’re able.

Ryan’s spoken word, poems & essays (Start with “Backwoods MacBeth” or “A Quandary of Quagmires”. You’ll thank me):  http://storytellerway.bandcamp.com

Sharon’s music (let the mermaid pirate queen sing to you in her neofolk & rock-romantique style): http://sharonknight.bandcamp.com

Celia’s music (from comedy to Irish legend to activism and back): http://celiaonline.bandcamp.com

Recordings of mine that feature Ryan’s awesome singing voice:
“Glashtyn Shanty” https://skinnywhitechick.bandcamp.com/track/glashtyn-shanty
“Black Swan Blues” https://skinnywhitechick.bandcamp.com/track/black-swan-blues-2

A whole bunch of songs with Ryan in them, tbh:

Happy birthday to these stalwart hearts, and to any of you who have a birthday this month, also!


2. I have one online concert this month, and it’s gonna be a special one, lots of filming on location and long-distance collaboration with my co-star, Kat Heatherington, poet and permaculture badass of the west.  She and both have to believe we’ll still have a country left later this month, and that y’all will still need songs and poems and pretty scenery to enjoy from the safety of your own nest.  So that’s what we’ll be bringing to you.

SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2021

The bones of this land deserve haunting songs and protean words to raise them. 
Join songwriter S. J. Tucker and poet Kat Heatherington for a shared online performance of words and music, poetry and songs rooted both in the soul of Kat’s desert home and S. J.’s green river valley. 
The two performers have worked together to produce concerts & events in community art spaces for more than a decade, but this will be their first opportunity to share an online show of Kat’s work & S. J.’s songs combined. Don’t miss it.

More about Kat Heatherington:

She is a queer, polyamorous, ecofeminist poet, artist, and pagan, who co-founded and lives in Sunflower River intentional community south of Albuquerque, in a river valley in the high desert. She has a passion for authenticity and emotional intelligence, which is reflected in her poetry. She has two books, The Bones of This Land and The Heart is a Muscle, both published by Swimming with Elephants Publications and available from the author, as well as on amazon.com, and at your local independent bookseller.
