John "Broadway" Tucker sings in the great tradition of southern soul and blues of the 1960s. The son of a sharecropper, he grew up on a Natchez plantation and spent his childhood on the Mississippi Delta. In his teens he moved to Memphis, Tennessee as rhythm & Blue and soul music exploded in that city in the early 1960s. He spent time at Stax Records and was mentored by Sam Cooke during this time. The Mississippi and Memphis influences, along with his gospel roots, make Tucker’s style an appealing mix of soul and blues. His impassioned singing is often compared to Bobby Blue Bland, O.V. Wright & Otis Redding.
