Abigail Anne "Abi" Tucker (born 22 January 1973) is an Australian singer-songwriter and actress. She has had roles on television series in Heartbreak High (1994–1995), The Secret Life of Us (2001–2003) and McLeod's Daughters (2007–2009); and in the film, The Wog Boy (2000).
Abigail Anne Tucker came to public attention as a contestant in the Australian version of New Faces in the early 1990s and in 1994 landed a role in the TV spin-off from Australian film The Heartbreak Kid called Heartbreak High. Her role in The Secret Life of Us from 2001 to 2003 gave Tucker exposure as a singer with slots not only on the show plus tracks on spin-off CDs. She starred in the 2000 motion picture comedy The Wog Boy, alongside Nick Giannopoulos, as Celia's sister Annie.
In 2003, her debut album, Dreamworld, was released. Not a musician afraid to experiment with her sound, she tried out a heavier rock style, forming short-lived band Bully during the late 1990s whilst living in the United Kingdom. Tucker is a live music performer in Sydney and her songs have also appeared on The Secret Life of Us album (featuring her best-known single, "Everybody (Idiot Free)", a Don Walker penned song which reached No. 82 on the Australian Singles Chart.) as well on the soundtrack to the movie Angst (in which she plays the part of May). She contributed backing vocals to some songs on David McCormack's debut solo album, Candy in 2002.
Tucker appeared in the play Breakfast with Jonny Wilkinson at the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. From 2007 to 2009, Tucker joined the cast of the rural-set, TV drama series, McLeod's Daughters, as the stubborn, yet passionate Grace Kingston (McLeod). Tucker was one of the lead cast members of the show. She co-starred alongside Simone Jade McKinnon who played Stevie and Edwina Richards who played Jaz. In September 2008 Tucker released her second album One December Moon.
In 2010, Tucker appeared in the ABC children's TV show, Play School, as well as performing in live appearances as it toured Australia.
