HOMETOWN: Olympia, WA
Ethan Tucker’s trademark sound of acoustic roots and layered electric guitars combined with an unmistakable soulful and bluesy vocal, is a recipe which has garnered attention from some of his most popular contemporaries, as well as bonafide legends.
Born in Olympia, Washington, Ethan has traveled the country with Jimmy Cliff, Buddy Guy, and The Wailers as well as national support slots with musical peers Slightly Stoopid, G-Love, and Michael Franti.
With Ethan’s newest release Misunderstood, now out on Stoopid Records (May 5, 2015) his enthusiasm for collaboration is seamlessly exemplified on his 11-song album produced by Michael Franti and Mario Caldato Jr., (Beastie Boys, Jack Johnson, G Love), and includes special guests Money Mark, Norwood Fisher (Fishbone) and Thomas Pridgeon (Mars Volta).
“I think Ethan is going to be a perennial artist for a lifetime of music. He is not somebody who you think is going to be like three years on the map and then you never hear from them again. “He is going to be an artist to me like Ben Harper or Jack Johnson or even John Lee Hooker who plays music until they can’t play anymore.” – Michael Franti
