Description

Your host Ben Decker welcomes singer, songwriter, social commentator and satirist Dara Starr Tucker onto the show. Join them for a riveting conversation on Dara's upcoming album, her work in deconstruction, and how she embraces being multi-faceted and authentic. Her work captures her personal journey to healing through songwriting as well as highlighting the call for change that has swept across the United States. 

Dara's original music blends the melodic and lyrical richness of the central plains with the soulful strains of the Black American musical experience.

Dara co-wrote the title track to, "Oklahoma,” the 2020 GRAMMY-winning
"Best Americana Album" for singer-songwriter, Keb’ Mo’. 

Dara's 2021 album, "Dreams of Waking: Music For A Better World" stayed
on the charts for 26 weeks and peaked at #7 on the JazzWeek charts in the U.S.

Since 2020, Dara has expanded her outreach via TiKTOK and Instagram via her captivating commentaries on human rights, music and the arts, education and political action.

She has presented at the first, on-line DE-CONN convention for the religion deconstruction community, and her work has been featured in campaigns for HBO, FX, and Ebony/Jet Magazine.
