Dara Tucker / Press

“Idiomatic versatility and stylistic flexibility are Tucker’s prime assets, along with a charismatic stage presence and dynamic, impressive sound. Her timing, diction and execution reflect a jazz singer’s penchant for interpretative punch and communicative edge.”

“I can't remember the last time I heard a new vocalist who impressed me so completely as Tucker. She has a beautiful, soulful voice, and her original songs are honest and innocent personal expressions backed by languid arrangements and skilled playing. A singer who combines Joan Baez's vocal integrity and Jean Carn's spiritualism.”

“Dara has the ability to attract not only the ear but the deepest grotto of hearts. That will take her a long way, perhaps the entire journey as she gives the future, with it's indistinguishable face, a face of her own creative making. As time unashamedly disrobes revealing all -- I'll be listening.”

Benny Golson

“Dara Tucker is both a stunning vocalist and consummate musician. She au-thentically weaves her personal story and experiences into her work to create music that is distinctive, soulful, and groovin' - her voice soars. World -- say hello to Dara Tucker!”

Helen Sung

“Dara pulls from a diverse set of influences, but she knows that soul is the common denominator. Dara has a very distinctive voice ---she values melody and is always committed to the rhythm.”

Charlie Hunter

“Dara's voice is totally fresh. Her original songs are among my favorites, as they reveal more to me about who she is as an artist, and a person. Simply beautiful!”

Bennie Maupin

“Dara Tucker is a vocalist who blends the soulful creaminess of Nancy Wilson with the sass ’n’ grit of Dinah Washington.”

“Dara reminds me of many of the great singers in that she's able to try different material and her sound always comes through. She makes the listeners feel her soul.””

Dr. Lonnie Smith

“Dara Tucker is an amazing vocalist. She is brilliant”

Cassandra Wilson

"Vocalist Dara Tucker has a rich, emphatic voice that is instantly recognizable and memorable. She is also a technical marvel, gifted with great range, fabulous delivery, and the ability to project and tell stories in such a manner she can make the most venerable numbers sound fresh and invigorating."

“All Right Now is a collection of jazz classics re-imagined through a distinctly modern sensibility. Tucker's lovely voice is emotive without going over the cliff into melodrama, while the production and musicianship are top-notch.”
