Now performing with stone soup band in bellingham area Bellingham Herald 10-21-04 Tucker sounds happy- similar to the adage that you can hear someone smiling over the phone. Circus Rollin' On retains the feeling of something unearthed and only partially dusted off. His interesting guitar playing whispers like a secret. What's Up magazine july 05 Tucker has got the experience and talent to attempt such rich covers. He puts a bit of boogey into his version of 'she just wants to dance' and has a vocal delivery that's closer to mose allison than keb mo. The album's best moments come from the more up tempo songs that feel like a man of experience who wants to show he's still got a spring in his step. Now playing with stone soup band in bellingham.
