Ursula Rucker

Ursula Rucker isn't a funky diva -- she's her own diva. Having collaborated with some of music's most sophisticated -- the Silent Poets, King Britt, Josh Wink, the Roots -- Rucker has honed her seductive spoken wordplay inside Philly soul, hip-hop, and new jazz. She combines social awareness with womanhood, black culture, and love for something musically alluring. A graduate of Temple's journalism school, Rucker made her poetic debut in 1994 at Philly's celebrated Zanzibar Blue. From there, she proved her smart and sultry bravado without frills. The late '90s illustrated her abrasive poetic nature inside cuts like Josh Wink's "Sixth Sense" and 4hero's "Loveless." Supa Sista, Rucker's debut album showcasing a street-fighting spirit, was issued in September 2001 on !K7. Silver or Lead (2003) and Ma'at Mama (2006) followed. ~ MacKenzie Wilson

I met her in Seattle back stage after the show maybe 4 months ago. She was unassuming, self assured, beautiful and open. What an awesome woman. We spoke of how we as people are all connected. Symbiotic was the word we used. When I hear her work, it touches the spirit that flows from one to another. The spirit that we call upon for creativity, hope, courage, strength... whatever. I'm just thankful to all who made it possible for her to be here and for a moment to share her talent, grace, beauty a
