The Wake Forest Renaissance Centre for the Arts welcomes singer-songwriter and cellist Shana Tucker on Saturday, Jan. 9, at 7 p.m.
Touted by Jazz Times Magazine as “a jazz talent…whose imprint and vitality has already been quite visible in North Carolina,” Shana’s style and sound has been described as a mash-up of Dianne Reeves, Joni Mitchell, and Tracy Chapman, with an efficient complexity that is reminiscent of Bill Withers. ChamberSoul™ best describes what the listener should expect when experiencing Shana’s music. “I’m intrinsically drawn to ‘real’ instruments, with resonance, tone and depth that can sound without amplification. Whenever and however possible, I always try to set a tone of acoustic intimacy with my colleagues on stage, and also with the audience, so that the music, performers and audience feel close and tangible, no matter the size the venue.”
In 2014, Shana was awarded the prestigious Nevada Arts Council Artist Fellowship, as one of only three Performing Arts fellows in the state, for her notable work on stage and within her Las Vegas community. Shana also serves as a teaching artist with The Smith Center for Performing Arts’ Education Program. She devotes a considerable amount of her time to working with students of all ages in public, private and charter schools, community centers and summer camps throughout the year as part of her mission to promote arts education programming for students of all ages.
