Sargent Tucker’s (ST) impetus for creating this music – “My desire is to write meaningful music with lyrics that inspires self-worth, values the experiences of relationships, and spreads infinite love to others”.
One of life’s major relationship challenges is transitioning through difficult, emotionally painful experiences, while maintaining a love for self, and others involved. Too often, when a relationship comes to an end, the departure seems unendurable. However, those who have lived a little know that trying times will pass. As one matures, having peace of mind becomes the focus for achieving real-life success. Whether differences grow from cherishing material processions more than each other, or from engaging in drama, life goes on after losing someone, who can’t be replaced. ST’s song, “No One Can Replace You”, was created to inspire self-value and hope in the midst of pain from ending a relationship.
New Orleans born; Sargent Tucker’s musical roots can be traced to the San Francisco Bay Area music scene. ST is a multi-talented, singer, musician, writer, and producer who considers himself a country boy at heart. By nature, ST is a loner. Without any fear to stand-alone for what he believes, ST has never been a follower. Absent of the need for personal recognition, ST prefers to edify the successes of others, rather than his own. ST doesn’t take himself too seriously, as he reminded us that, “music is only 12-notes”. However, ST definitely takes his work seriously, similar to a perfectionist, which is his approach to nearly everything. Music is ST’s love, but not his only love. More than fortune, fame, or stardom, ST placed greater value on a promise to his mother to finish college (and graduated with honors from the University of California, Davis).
Sargent Tucker’s most recent release, “I Need Your Love” featuring Drizabone, charted #1 on the United Kingdom’s Solar Radio.

This event was sponsored by the International Happiness Foundation, Drai’s W Hotel, and Dr. Shelly Sykes, a USA Multiple Best-Selling Award-Winning Author.

(Ice Cube) Dr. Dre’s Production of the “World Class Wreckin’ Cru”. Also, “Stop Telling Me” a song written by ST and recorded with the band “Two Things in One” (TTIO) was featured on the Grammy Nominated “Music City Story” compilation CD liner notes. Later, ST was inducted into the “Bay Area Blues Society Hall of Fame”, as a member of TTIO.
