"In short, TAUK is unstoppable. If you haven’t see them, dear God, go," says Live for Live Music. Hailing from Oyster Bay, NY, heavy instrumental rock-fusion onslaught TAUK has created a unique musical identity that is quickly separating them from the pack. Featuring Matt Jalbert (guitar), Charlie Dolan (bass), Alric "A.C." Carter (keyboard-organ), and Isaac Teel (drums), the band seamlessly brings together a mélange of genres as diverse as gritty funk, fusion, hip hop, progressive rock, ambient, classic rock, and jazz. This distinct musical footprint coupled with tireless touring have built a dedicated and loyal fanbase for TAUK, and inspired the release of the band’s first live album HEADROOM, a jaw-dropping testament to the young group’s already masterful live show. Jalbert described the group’s decision to drop a live album at this early juncture in the band’s career: “We’ve created an identity and we want to capture these moments and share this stage of our evolution. It felt like the right time considering the amazing year we’ve been having.” HEADROOM, mixed by five time Grammy winning producer/mixer/engineer Robert Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson and Taj Mahal) features 16 hard-hitting, technically inspired instrumental tracks including a jam-rendition of Nirvana’s classic “In Bloom” & a hard hitting version of “Battle Without Honor Or Humanity” written by Tomoyasu Hotei with special guests The Shady Horns. The two-disc compilation features hand selected performances recorded at The NorVa (Norfolk, VA), The National (Richmond, VA), The Madison Theater (Covington, KY), The Ritz (Raleigh, NC), Iron Works (Buffalo, NY), The Southern (Charlottesville, VA), AURA Music Festival (Live Oak, FL), and Terminal West (Atlanta, GA).
