Sue Oatts (Tucker) Sue Oatts (Tucker)

I come from a family of known jazz musicians. “My father, Jack Oatts, was one of the first jazz educators in Iowa. Music was always around... mostly jazz.” My brothers, Jim and Dick Oatts, are also internationally known and respected jazz artists.

Before I took up singing, I was blowin' my tenor sax in jazz band and playing' a duet with Clark Terry at a jazz festival on my clarinet. “I think playing a horn has had a great influence on my singing. I've tried to approach singing from an instrumental mindset. Space is just as important as sound.”

After attending college, I began a studio career producing and singing jingles and industrials with a voice-over thrown in on occasion. I spent seven years teaching music theory, vocal studio techniques and being coordinator of the ensemble dept. at MusicTech College in downtown St. Paul. Currently, I'm the Assistant Director of Education at IPR (Institute of Production & Recording) in downtown Minneapolis. You can find me performing at various night spots in the Twin Cities singing mainstream/cool jazz.

All of my CD's are available at my web site, amazon.com, cdbaby.com, tcmusic.net and at all live performances.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
