Endearingly quirky indie singer-songwriter Jocee Tuck is not one to shy away from the unconventional, choosing to make her instrument of choice the marimba, a deep-toned xylophone perfect for creating her whimsical signature sound.
We look forward to the diversity of the marimba as well as the energy that Jocee brings to her craft as a festival guest artist.
It wasn’t until studying contemporary music at university and playing with space-pop songstress Princess Chelsea that Jocee was introduced to the xylophone, quickly developing a passion for wooden and bell mallet instruments, which she incorporates into her orchestral indie-folk solo material.
After wowing the audience at the APRA AMCOS Silver Scroll Awards 2016, with her heartfelt rendition of Tami Neilson’s ode to her late father, ‘The First Man’, Jocee moved to the country with her family and became a mother for a second time. She’s now re-emerged bursting with enthusiasm and living in Marlborough!
