FIRE & STRINGS is a collaborative project between fire artist / touring musician S. J. Tucker (aka Skinny White Chick) and fire artist / dancer / instructor Kevin K Wiley, dazzling audiences through a fusion of fire play and improvisational music. Tucker accompanies Wiley's fire play with her live music or spins fire poi along with Wiley, often with drum support, custom electronic tracks, or as the highly-flammable icing on the cake for explosive shows with other bands.
The essence of Fire & Strings is the interplay between song, dance, theatre, and music; brought together with passion for art and beauty.
Fire & Strings has been featured on national television and delighted hundreds of live crowds since its ignition, undertaking shows in Memphis, Austin, Atlanta, Orlando, Jacksonville (FL), New Orleans, Redmond (WA), St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, and Colorado Springs, as well as many outdoor festivals across the country.
Tucker and Wiley make for a scintillating pair in any combination, but they are at their hottest spinning in tandem, using their obvious chemistry and trust to create a highly entertaining and passionate dance.
Fully-insured, sensible and safe pyrophiliacs, Fire & Strings serve the muses and honor, with their talents, the truest passions in the universe: song and flame.
