Chief Broom makes heavy, brooding and somehow uplifting music showing us reflections of the fragility, monotony, beauty and horrors of everyday life. It is centered around the songwriting of Boise multi-instrumentalist Shadrach Tuck and has featured a revolving cast namely William “Cheese” Cheeseman his “leading man” and Frankie Tillo (Thick Business, Frankie Tillo) “his council.”
Shad founded the project with his brother Tanner “TJ” Tuck in 2014 who was his only consistent drummer in the band till now. TJ passed away in mid 2021 at 22 years old. He has had a profound effect on Boise music and culture and will be remembered through his friends, family and fellow musicians. The band’s mission is focused on carrying out his legacy and finishing what he started.
