Not all musicians are comfortable representing genres from neo-soul, jazz and world music, but Destiny Autumn Tucker is.
On Nov. 30 the vocalist, instrumentalist and songwriter and her band, The Free Will Project, will bring her dynamic sound to the Bishop Bar.
Tucker is currently a Jazz Studies student at IU through the Jacobs School of Music, according to the Bishop’s website.
She is already an established up-and coming performer and has worked with Don Braden, Roseanne Vitro, Bobby McFerrin, Janis Siegel, Darmon Meader, Tierney Sutton and Jimmy Heath.
Tucker is regularly featured at the “Deer Head Inn,” a historical jazz venue located in the Pocono Mountains at the Delaware Water Gap, Pennsylvania, according to the Bishop’s website. Her band, The Free Will Project, consists of musicians who met during her time at the music school.
The incorporation of psychedelic neo-soul vibe of Hiatus Kaiyote, the gospel inflections of Aretha, the funk rock fusion of Weather Report and the percussive elements of Brazilian and Afro-Cuban traditions creates Destiny Autumn and the Free Will Project’s unique sound, according to the Bishop’s website.
Spice Cowboy and Flower Mouth will open for Tucker and her band. The show is for ages 18 and up and begins at 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $5.
