Last night I saw the fabulous SJ Tucker at a house concert in Maryland. The cool thing about house concerts is that the crowds are small, and the artist has time to speak with everyone while signing CDs. This is the second time I met Sooj, and she is fantastic. You know you've found a good artist when they're better live than on their recordings. As my friend Melissa said, we listen to the CDs to remind ourselves of the awesomeness of the live performances.
You can listen to pretty much anything of hers at her website. I recommend checking out the first three tracks on Mischief and The Wendy Trilogy on Sirens.
She has five solo albums, and three albums that are companions to novels written by her friend Catherynne Valente. There is a live album available only from iTunes or from her at a signing. And lastly, she has an album titled Mythcreants with her band Tricky Pixie, which includes Betsy Tinny (of Gaia Consort) and Alexander James Adams.
After Sooj's amazing performance, I picked up my favorite album of hers, which is Mythcreants with her band Tricky Pixie. She signed it, and I'm going to give it away to one luck follower, along with some swag! You can listen to the CD in it's entirety here.
