With a deep respect for lyrical storytelling, Shana Tucker delivers a unique voice through her self-described genre of ChamberSoul™. Her melodies weave strong hints of jazz, classical, soulful folk, acoustic pop and a touch of R&B into a distinctive rhythmic tapestry. Tucker's style and sound has been described as a blend of Dianne Reeves, Joni Mitchell and Tracy Chapman, with a complexity reminiscent of Bill Withers. She has opened for internationally acclaimed artists including Norah Jones, Lisa Fischer, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Hamiet Bluett, Javon Jackson, the Blind Boys of Alabama, and Indigo Girls.
