June news!

Fam! I’ve got TWO free concert events this coming weekend, one in IL and one in MO! Feeling strong, and I can’t wait. I’ll be sharing both of these with Ginger Doss & Summer Osborne, along with other amazing folx. Also, I just updated the full tour schedule so you can see everything I have planned for the summer that’s confirmed:

Poet Kat Heatherington and I are also scheming to share another online show this August! More details on that as soon as we’ve nailed down the details.

In the meantime, please let me know if I’ll be seeing you at PRIDE in Vandalia this Saturday, OR St. Louis Pagan Picnic on Sunday the 2nd!

I’d love it if y’all would keep me in your thoughts on the morning of June 5th. I’ll be showing up at 8am Central for my first and only lumpectomy. So mote that, and f*** Cancer. One and done and never again is my wish, if you’d like to throw in on the healing magic with me. Thank you.

Later this month I’ll be back in Missouri for two shows: with Ginger for Faery Fest at Cozmic Bunny Meadows in Willow Springs June 22nd weekend, and Belle MO at The Warehouse with Meren King and our brother Mr. E on Monday, June 24!

We had some wild storms this past week, and so I may be sharing cleanup and community support info for Northwest Arkansas as news unfolds. For now, please consider supporting our jeweler sister, Bone Church Jewelry, whose water heater failed as a result of tornado damage- she’s having a 30% off sale right now:

Online show THIS SATURDAY!

Hi, beloveds! Firstly, I hope you’ll ​join my Muses and me on Saturday evening!​ We’ll be FULLY LIVE for the first half of our Online Concert Thing show at 7pm CDT, and ALL FOUR MUSES are gonna participate after all! This will be the first time we’ll stream all the way live on our beloved indie platform, Online Concert Thing. After that, we’ll hang out in the chat with y’all for a replay of our November 2023 online show from the road.

​Here’s a little video preview we made for y’all!​

(And yes, more cameos from Lynda’s pupper Toto are highly likely!)

OTHER SHOWS COMING UP: yall. Please please do not miss MoxieFest next Tuesday! Watch on ​Twitch​ or ​FB Live​. I’ll be performing along with many other magical creatures, including our adorable Muppetty-moppet moth host herself, Moxie!

After that, I’m off to east Tennessee for a solo set at ​Spring Fairy Fest!​

​Ginger Doss​ and I have a two-week shared tour next month, with shows in Memphis, Asheville, and just outside Gatlinburg! Memphis was my hometown twenty years ago and the place my full-time music career began. So I’m thrilled that it’ll be our first stop on May 8! LET’S PACK THE HOUSE and celebrate ​Ginger’s new Sacred Flow EP​!

After Memphis, we’re off to NC for a GLORIOUS REUNION with our witchy fam at Asheville Raven & Crone May 11, AND our song sis AMY FREAKIN’ STEINBERG May 12!

After our two Asheville shows, we’ll head for beloved Pagan land in Cosby, TN to perform for the May Moon Magick festival. Registration is closed for May Moon Magick: The Story….which means the event site will be at capacity for the first time in many years! AND THAT IS AMAZING NEWS.

Home again after May Moon, for a show right in my neighborhood, Hidden Acres Farm’s Harmony in the Hollow Pagan & Pride Festival!

If you’d like a lovely graphic to help you remember all these marvelous things and more, I gotchoo. BEHOLD.

More info on each show any time: ​​ (portrait art by Cora Ocean!)

If you’ve read this far, THANK YOU. I know it’s a lot. But it’s a joy for me to have so much to tell you. More shows than I’ve been able to consecutively crow about in ages. If I know yall, and I do, you’re celebrating with me. Thank you for that, too. Remember, my $10 and $20 Patrons get new, sekrit content every month, and ALL my Patrons get show videos as often as I can capture them…so ​if you’ve got it in your budget, come on in.​

Schedule change!

Hi, fam! I won’t be going to CauldronFest this weekend after all, so I’m posting to let you know. There’s a possibility I’ll get to stream a live online show instead; stay tuned! Meanwhile, I have to tell you that Pagan Unity Fest this past weekend was like coming home. PUF is a festival that has welcomed me with open arms as a performer since my very first years on the road. It was an honor to be there again with community, and I’m so grateful. I love my job, I love my band mates (Lynda couldn’t join us because she was under the weather, but we did our best without her anyway), and I loved our PUF crowd. Closing the show with “Come Down”, “Beetz in my Salad”, and “Firebird’s Child” back to back felt like the perfect rebirth that it was.

April 2024 shows & news

Hi, everybody!

My first record turned twenty years old a week and a half ago! Have a listen:

I have a good handful of concerts & appearances this month, one online, and all the rest in Tennessee! Here they are:


Puf was one of the first festivals ever to hire me as a performer, just about twenty years ago, and to keep asking me back! I can’t wait. More info:


I can count on one hand the times I’ve gone to a festival just to be there, so when The Witch’s Garden invited me to come along to CauldronFest this year, I said yes! I might only be performing a tiny bit with Ginger & Lynda during their Saturday night show, and singing for fun at the Witch’s Garden booth. Come hang out, shop the merch booth, and have fun! Entertainment for CauldronFest 2024: RAW, Primal Rhythm, and Ginger Doss & Lynda Millard! More info:


552 S. Main, donations welcome! Come hear me perform “Rabbit’s Song” and get your own copy of the book signed! Many thanks to The Broom Closet for hosting; costumes encouraged!


6:30-9:30pm Central, WATCH HERE on FB Live or HERE on Twitch!

MoxieFest is a multimedia music event hosted by the one and only Moxie Buttercup, cyberspace magicologist and correspondent for KateNyxTV! It’s all the wild whimsy of a May Day music festival, without the parking hassles, bug bites, or greasy fair food. [Unless that’s what you’re into, in which case…go for it!] Featuring performances from Rorie Kelly, GooJour, S. J. Tucker, and Roxie and the Rockettes! Celebrate the Spring in the Place That Isn’t a Place. It’s time for the Coziest Concert in Cyberspace! Thanks to the remarkable Kate Nyx (and Moxie) for inviting me!

Lots more concerts from May through October are already confirmed, and I intend to keep adding others as they solidify! All the info is here:

I just completed and shared this month’s goodies for my Patreon patrons! Add your support here if you like:

Thank you all for staying on this magical ride with me. It would be desperately hard to pull it off without you!

Milestone Time!


Let’s have a dance party: ​–3lUFyLU​

Or listen on Bandcamp if you like: ​​ and grab that “name your price” (including FREE) download any time if you don’t already have it, or get it for a friend.

The Youtube playlist features the original (first printing) cover of my first release, Haphazard, of which there were only 1000 copies- if you’ve got one, you’ve been with me a long time. Nitia Cheveallier’s Medusa Sooj album art for all the successive print runs is my favorite of the two, but I’m proud of the young woman I was in this photo cover, you better believe it. I’m proud of every note on that thing, not least because my recording engineer at Young Ave Sound in Memphis, who was very kind in spite of himself, quipped at one point TO MY FACE, “it’s not like we’re recording an ALBUM here.”

Watch me. And then watch me keep going.

Hopefully I can find time to go live and sing some of these tracks across social media as the weekend unfolds, so we can stretch this celebration out! Keep your eyes and ears open.

Thanks for all your support & love, everybody. I feel it. It gets me through more things than I could name in a timely fashion.

Your bard, S. J.

ps–lotta shows coming up for the rest of this year, more and more confirming all the time.

No small number of you are supporting me on Patreon! I’m so grateful. For anyone else who’s interested in being part of that marvelous mini-world of early listens to new music, you can pledge for $1 and up when you’re ready. 

Some sad news and mutual aid ops:

One night only, Sooj’s first official show in CoMO ever, with two of the hottest baddies in our magical, musical world!

Asheville soon, and beyond!

Hello, everyone! Thanks to Byron Ballard and everybody at Asheville Raven & Crone, I’ve got a concert this month in North Carolina! Here are the details:

Sunday, Dec 17, 5-6pm

Meet-N-Greet with S. J. Tucker.

6pm-8pm Concert

Asheville Raven & Crone: 640 Merrimon Ave Suite 207 Asheville NC 28804

$5-$20 suggested donation to cover S. J.’s expenses, and to benefit the store! Sooj will also have merch available for purchase & autographs during the meet & Greet.

Musician S. J. Tucker is the voice of lore at the campfire and the sharp laughter of modern myth, a whimsical wisdom keeper whose concert performances run the gamut from silly to sacred and back again. Witches & Pagans Magazine named her “the voice of neotribal Paganism”, and The Wild Hunt calls her work a surprise and a delight. Whether you found her through solid crowd favorites like “Hymn to Herne” or “Firebird’s Child”, or you’re encountering her fierce, welcoming spirit on stage for the first time this year, S. J. has a song for you. With deft guitar, skillful hand drums, and a siren’s compelling vocals, she wields an award-winning body of original music, both plugged and unplugged, known for changing lives and healing wounded hearts. S. J. (“Sooj” to fans & friends) is proud to contribute to the soundtrack of our emotional, spiritual, and magical (r)evolution.

I’m so excited for this, my last and longest tour of 2023, with my beloved bandmates.

ONLINE SHOW REMINDER for this coming MONDAY NIGHT! Join me if you can, just $5 to get your virtual seat:

GRAB A SHAKER if you’ve got one and can watch the show while I’m live-I’m planning to be fully live for this one, and my librarian co-conspirators have asked me to lead a shake-a-long for at least one song during the concert. The kiddos watching along in Dubuque at the county library will be MAKING shaker eggs and maracas during the show! Can you guess which song I’m planning for this?
