“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.”

May 7 & 10 online show + Firebird’s Child club remix!

May 3, 22

Hi, folx! Just a couple of quick things to share with you for the month of May.

THING ONE! I hope you can join me this May 7 OR 10 for this month’s online show! Get your ticket for $5 or more here! My special guest will be my story-bestie Catherynne M. Valente, and she’s got a new book out that’ll knock your fairytale socks off. Come and hear her read passages from her work (her voice, her delivery, AND her writing are all quite good, I’m telling you!) between songs! We’ve also got door prizes available, including signed goodies & jewelry inspired by my lyrics, unlocking at 25 tickets sold & 50 tickets sold. Invite your friends, choose the showtime that suits your schedule better (you only need one ticket for both May 7 at 2pm Central and/or May 10 at 9pm Central), and join us!

Here’s an image you may share on your socials if you like, to help us spread the word.

More about Catherynne & her new Middle Readers novel, Osmo Unknown and the Eightpenny Woods, which she describes as a gender-swapped Persephone story, set in the world of Where the Wild Things Are.

THING TWO! Bandcamp Friday will be back again this May 6 from midnight to midnight Pacific! I’ll be doing a special Bandcamp release of the brand new “Firebird’s Child” remix, on which I got to collaborate with Dead Beat, my new Midwest witchy DJ buddy! It’s streaming on all the usual places now (YouTube, Apple Music, Spotify, Pandora, Deezer & more) but if you’d like to download it directly from me, you may do so starting this Friday via my Bandcamp store! Bandcamp Friday is when the Bandcamp platform gives artists an extra cut of sales on the first Friday of just about every month; they’ve been doing this for us since before the pandoodle began.
