Concert

After five years performing with the world-renowned Cirque de Soleil’s KÀ in Las Vegas, Shana Tucker is back in North Carolina, and we’re thrilled to welcome her back to the PineCone stage! She’ll be joined by Amy K Bormet (piano), Keith Ganz (guitar), James Suter (bass), and Thomas Taylor (drums).

Tucker is a singer-songwriter and cellist who credits her genre-bending ChamberSoul™ journey to the influences of her jazz and classical roots interwoven with ’80s & ’90s pop music, movie soundtracks, and world music. Touted by JazzTimes Magazine as “a jazz talent…whose imprint and vitality has already been quite visible in North Carolina,” Tucker’s style and sound have been described as a mash-up of Dianne Reeves, Joni Mitchell, and Tracy Chapman, with an efficient complexity that is reminiscent of Bill Withers. Tucker has opened for internationally-acclaimed artists including Norah Jones, Lisa Fischer, Sweet Honey in the Rock, Javon Jackson, the Blind Boys of Alabama, and Indigo Girls, and her vocals and cello are featured on several studio and live recording projects by both independent and signed label artists and producers. Tucker also devotes a considerable amount of her time to working with students in schools/universities, community centers and summer camps throughout the year as part of her mission to promote arts education programming for students of all ages. With the help of her dedicated fan base, Tucker successfully launched a crowd-funded campaign to finance the independent recording and release of her debut CD, SHiNE, in 2011. Due to its broad appeal and genre-defying nature, SHiNE was picked up in 2015 by Boston-based jazz label and distribution team, The Jazz Urbane Recordings / SUGO Music Group to be remastered and reissued as one of their premiere projects. Tucker returned to her full-time touring and recording schedule in 2017, with new collaborations in the offing, and the completion of her sophomore recording project, set for release before the end of the year.
