S.J. Tucker will hold concert today
Unitarian Universalist Church, 816 W. Gore, invites the community to be a part of a magical, mystical and entertaining evening with S.J. Tucker live in concert from 8-10 p.m. today at the church.
The doors will open at 7:30 p.m.
Sean Forehand of the church said the concert aims to give local residents something that interests and entertains them.
"Those who come to the concert will have a great time; they will be well entertained," Forehand said. "This is a family-oriented concert."
Tucker has been a full-time, independent singer-songwriter since 2004. Her music genres include jazz and folk fusion or fairy tale folk and jazz.
"Saturday's concert will be the first show I've had since I released my new album, 'Stolen Season,' on March 23," Tucker said in an email interview. "I write and perform all my own original music, which in the case of 'Stolen Season,' is greatly influenced by jazz, blues, and the folk traditions of the southern United States. I'll be playing both electric and acoustic guitar during the concert, and I'll sing on each song."
This will be the first time Tucker will be performing in Lawton. She said she is grateful for a chance to perform here so she can reach new and established fans in the area. She added the audience will have an opportunity to connect with original music that cannot be heard anywhere else.
"If you enjoy folklore, mischief, geeky stuff, good stories, lyrics-based jazz, or silly, sweet, fierce, funny, magical, mythical music sung by a woman who's there to connect with you and make you think, I can say from experience that you'll have a great evening at the show," Tucker said.
Tucker said she may perform spiritual or religious songs, depending on the mood of the audience.
