Kate Tucker

Kate Tucker is an American singer, songwriter, and guitarist from the great state of Ohio. Born into a family of truckers, her music is influenced by the American road with themes of departure, distance, love lost and reborn. Kate’s songs move from molasses-heavy rock to elegant, haunting ballads borne on the wings of her fragile, but insistent voice.

After studying literature in college, Kate spent a year busking in the streets of Paris before moving to Seattle. There she recorded her first solo EP, "Eros Turannos," with Ryan Hadlock (Blonde Redhead, Regina Spektor) and subsequently formed Kate Tucker and the Sons of Sweden. Their self-titled debut was widely acclaimed, topping the blog charts, and landing spots on Starbucks compilations and television shows. The songs drew influence from hot Midwest nights and cold Northwest dawns, and Kate was frequently compared Neko Case, Chan Marshall and Cowboy Junkies front woman Margo Timmins.

Breaking with the band in 2009, Kate began work on a new collection of songs that would become "White Horses." Produced by Blake Wescott (Pedro The Lion, Damien Jurado) "White Horses" features an all-star cast of Seattle musicians, including Casey Foubert on drums and guitars (Sufjan Stevens, Rocky Votolato). The album is due out in June 2010.

Though nomadic of late, Kate can often be found somewhere between Seattle, Akron, and NYC.
