Shana Tucker delivers a unique voice to her self-described genre of ChamberSoul™ on her critically-acclaimed debut CD, SHiNE (Jazz Urbane/SUGO Music Group). With a deep respect for the art of storytelling, Shana's lyrical melodies evoke strong hints of jazz, soulful folk and acoustic pop, woven into a unique rhythmic tapestry. Touted by JazzTimes Magazine as “a jazz talent…whose imprint and vitality has already been quite visible in North Carolina,” Shana’s style and sound as been described as a mash-up of Dianne Reeves, Joni Mitchell, and Tracy Chapman, with an efficient complexity that is reminiscent of Bill Withers.
"Her voice alone would support a career. What makes Tucker special is her adherence to the cello, boldly taking the instrument into new territory…Tucker and her cello blur the lines in our heads that divide classical, jazz, folk, R&B and soul.” --INDYWEEK.COM
