Ursula Rucker is a Philadelphia born poet, mother, activist and recording artist. She has been performing, recording and releasing works for over 20 years. Ursula has traveled and toured extensively, throughout North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand and Africa.

She is dedicated to art as/for social change and committed to freedom fighting, truth-telling and peace making through her chosen art form.

To date, Ursula has released five solo albums, as well as collaborated on over 100 songs, in a wide array of musical genres, with producers/artists from around the world such as King Britt and The Roots.

Ursula was awarded both the Leeway Foundation’s Art for Change & Transformation Awards. In 2018 she also became the recipient of the prestigious Pew Fellowship.

Currently, Ursula is working on her 6th solo album, and planning her first book project...and always looking forward to making and sharing art with the people in as many ways as possible.
