Corin Tucker (born November 9, 1972 ) is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist currently based in Portland, best known for her work with influential rock band Sleater-Kinney. In April 2010 Tucker announced she was recording a solo album for Kill Rock Stars to be released in October 2010.
Completing the Tucker band for first album is Unwound's Sara Lund and Golden Bears' Seth Lorinczi. According to Tucker, the album would be a "middle-aged mom record". The band's first album, 1,000 Years (2010), was released in October of 2010 on Kill Rock Stars to generally favorable reviews.
Of writing and recording the new album, Tucker notes that Kill My Blues was a group effort. “After the past two years playing together, traveling and making music, I think we’re more comfortable,” she says. “We collaborated on every song on this record and no one was shy about their ideas. I think you can hear that sense of joy and abandon in the songs.”
