Originally TUSK started off as a solo project created by Zack Silverstein (a former solo acoustic instrumentalist) around Jan. 2011. After 8 very long months of recording in his room, Zack completed the solo EP "Barakku Brothers." Soon after its release, Sam Mcadam (Drummer) and Willy Kirkendall (Bassist) joined the project becoming a 3 man tri-force of greatness. At the moment TUSK is currently working on live material for future shows. "Barakku Brothers" (EP) is a fictional story created by Zack Silverstein involving two primary characters. Brothers, Tusk(Zack Silverstein) and Touraus(Aaron Silverstein). This solo project is meant to take the listener on a dark and groovy journey through the lives of these boys. Various layerd guitar tracks, drum tracks as well as vocal harmonies were used to create the sound desired by Zack Silverstein. "I had a lot of inspiration for the TUSK EP throughout the whole recording process. From Iron and Wine, to the Local Native, solo acoustic instrumentalist Erik Mongrain and various others. I did my best to create a very dark and cool journey. A cool boat ride through the mystic swap if ya know what I mean... well something like that."
