Dara Tucker

From opening for Gregory Porter to appearing on the Tavis Smiley show to winning the prestigious, “NIMA” award for best jazz vocalist, Tucker is making her mark in the world of jazz and beyond with a blend of soul, Americana, Gospel and jazz that is uniquely her own. Her 2017 album, Oklahoma Rain, showcases her as a formidable songwriter, able to express love, loss and healing in one fell swoop. Having performed on many of the major jazz stages in the US, including The Blue Note (NYC), Snug Harbor (New Orleans) and Scullers (Boston), Dara Tucker is poised to establish herself as one of the fresh, contemporary voices that will help to seamlessly move one of music’s greatest traditions into the 21st century.
