Singer-songwriter Kate Tucker grew up in Suffield, a small farm town outside of Akron, and started playing around the area in the early 2000s. After graduating from the University of Akron, she moved to Paris for a while before ending up in Seattle, where she recorded her first EP. In 2010, she went back to Akron for a few months working on a short film and music video for her song “Bullet Train.”
Tucker, who now lives in Nashville, raised a few eyebrows with her 2010 debut, which was produced by Blake Wescott (Pedro the Lion, Damien Jurado). Last year, she issued her latest long player, The Shape, The Color, The Feel, an album that features hushed vocals and pretty pop melodies. She'll be in town this week to play Musica on Friday. Then, on June 15, “Let Me Go,” a short film that Adam Smalley directed for Tucker’s Shape Color Feel project, will premiere at the Nightlight Cinema. Tucker will be at the premiere for a short Q & A with Smalley and producer Miriam Bennett. The band has just released a new music video for "Let Me Go." We've got the premiere and you can check it out here:
