Celtic Gypsy Folk
Contribution to the Show
The unique and amazing sound of SJ Tucker pounds its way into our show with her dramatic Hymn to Herne in our Holiday Special for 2012, SP27.
Telling a story is sometimes like weaving a spell. Images and concepts wrapped in rhyme and rhythm are a gift to the imagination. SJ Tucker specializes in such magic and such gifts, enfolded and delivered in folk rock mythpunk music that moves the body and soul.
You may know SJ Tucker, or "Sooj", as the mastermind behind Tricky Pixie, or from the cover of the inaugural issue of Witches and Pagans magazine. Tucker is perhaps best known for the fusion she weaves with story and song -- in her Wendy Trilogy, for example, Peter Pan's own Wendy inherits Captain Hook's pirate ship and opens an on-deck school for young ladies called the Lost Girls Pirate Academy.
Restless as the "questing bards" and "ladies vagabond" in her songs and stories, Sooj continuously tours the U. S. as an independent performer, featured everywhere from festivals to living rooms. When asked "Where do you live?" she typically answers, "In my truck." The full answer is a bit more complicated.
Since 2004, Tucker has maintained an average of more than 140 shows per year and has released six studio albums of original music, three book soundtracks, three live albums, an illustrated children's book, and a series of limited-edition EPs.
"A brass-balled pixie with a killer voice" (Satyrblade, Vision Magazine), S.J. Tucker turns heads and touches hearts wherever she goes. She skillfully blends guitars and various hand percussion to her will, but her true gift is her voice — an instrument that slides effortlessly from whispered invocations to full-throated gospel and blues. "Singer/songwriters, take note," raves J-Sin of Smother.net. "This is what you should be doing and how you should sound!"
