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 (Bitterment, Sly Moon Sutra) and Frankie Tillo (Thick Business, Frankie Tillo), as well as contributions from Max Voulelis (Porcelain Tongue) on drums and Jake Marchus (Frankie Tillo, Bitterment) 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 and was expertly mixed by Sonny DiPerri. The project was formed by Shadrach and his brother Tanner “TJ” Tuck in high-school and fluctuated in activity while focusing their energies into the band SLY MOON SUTRA. When former SLY MOON member William “Cheese” Cheeseman jammed with the Tuck brothers, he encouraged them to restart and revitalize the project. Since then CHIEF BROOM has toured around the Pacific Northwest and opened for Ceremony, Holy Fawn, Spirit of the Beehive, and many more. Unfortunately, TJ Tuck passed away at 22 years old of a fentanyl overdose. TJ has had a profound effect on the Boise music scene and culture. CHIEF BROOM’s mission is focused on carrying on his legacy and finishing what he had started. Their inaugural LP “hidden in plain sight” features his drumming and artistic vision throughout the record including vocal and musical sound bites from TJ and Shad’s childhood. It encompasses themes of exploration and coming of age as brothers and friends in a small town changing before their eyes as they themselves change. Navigating the throes of formative years in garnering friendships and sometimes losing them in the wake of addiction and interpersonal conflict. Ultimately, these experiences culminate into an arc of hope by moving on and embracing recovery, while learning to live with trauma, and coming to terms with adulthood and finally, an acceptance of self. CHIEF BROOM's "hidden in plain sight" was tracked and engineered by their father Terre Tuck at their childhood home in Star, Idaho back in 2019. Since that time, the release has been given a new life through the mixing and production contributions of Sonny DiPerri and his longtime collaborator Adam Gonalves elevating masters. CHIEF BROOM's debut was released to commemorate TJ Tuck's birthday on September 29th 2023. The band is now working on material for their followup.
