SJ Tucker

S. J. Tucker’s music changes lives & gets the good stuff to those who need it, and she’s proud to contribute to the soundtrack of magical life.  A performer well loved by witchy events at home and abroad since 2002, the singer-songwriter came flying out of the Memphis music scene, guitar in hand and voice at the ready, and her feet have hardly hit the ground since.  Whether you found her through solid crowd favorites like “Firebird’s Child” and “Hymn to Herne”, or you’re just encountering her spunky, healing spirit live on stage for the first time this year,  S. J. (Sooj to fans and friends) has a song for you.  Witches & Pagans magazine called her “the face of neo-tribal Paganism” and The Wild Hunt calls her work a surprise and a delight.

“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. Cooney, blackgate.com
“I am impressed by Tucker’s artistry, by her musical abilities and inspiration. But I am amazed by the power of her presentation. Her performance puts me in mind of a leopard, small but exotic, and of the play of her muscles — hidden, but evident in the flow of sinew beneath her coat.”  –Andrea Jones, author of  Hook & Jill

“She’s got Dar [Williams]’s sardonic sincerity coupled with Janis Ian’s vocal chops and the deft guitar hands of Emily Saliers. Her lyrics swell up from the underworld, where so many artists venture but which few truly understand.” –Phil Brucato NewWitch magazine

“To say I have a special place in my heart for S. J. Tucker would be an understatement of high degree. Over the years, we have found ourselves on many of the same music circuits, sharing many stages and songs. We have inspired each other’s songwriting, and she has even appeared to me in a dream, encouraging me to step fully onto the path of the wandering minstrel…S. J. Tucker is also an outstanding live performer. I recommend seeing her the first chance you get.” —Sharon Knight

“One of the foremost songwriters in the world of cabaret, Mythpunk, Faerie, Pagan, and general kickassery, S. J. has released over ten albums and isn’t stopping anytime soon!  If you like silly, sweet, fierce, funny, magical, mythical music, then S. J. Tucker is sure to enchant you.” —WickedFaire.com
