Heavy, brooding and yet uplifting, CHIEF BROOM reveals reflections of the fragility, monotony, beauty and horrors of everyday life. Centered around the songwriting of Boise, Idaho based multi-instrumentalist Shadrach Tuck and featuring a revolving cast of collaborators including guitarists William “Cheese” Cheeseman (Sly Moon Sutra) and Frankie Tillo (Thick Business, Frankie Tillo), as well as contributions from Max Voulelis (Porcelain Tongue) on drums and Jake Marchus on keys. CHIEF BROOM’s debut album “hidden in plain sight” also features strings and woodwind contributions played by Ben Youtz, Kayce Guthmiller, and Shaun Scrivner.
A labor of love, this album was painstakingly completed in the wake of band co-founder TJ Tuck’s death, by his friends, family, and bandmates to honor his legacy and memorialize his profound impact on the Boise music scene. His presence is pronounced throughout “hidden in plain sight”.
“Dirt Russell is what happens when a snarling werewolf and a time-traveling resistance fighter from the age of The Great A.I. Uprising have a meetcute in a ghost town under a full moon.”
– Dusty Aunan (our best friend)
Counter jazz rhythms overlap with ethereal songwriting. That exposed night sky feeling. The effect of being elevated by something familiar. The melodic rhythmic and southern elements carry one another.
Drop of Honey
Drop of Honey takes a visceral and cerebral dive into the unspeakable depths of human emotion, inspired by elements of punk, metal, and jazz music as well as themes of time and space to create a unique fusion of sound and energy that has been described as “a roundhouse kick to the face.” Drop of Honey seeks to push the boundaries of rock music to utmost highs and lows, and everywhere in between, to encapsulate a fully dynamic and powerfully emotional listening experience. established in 2020
