If charisma and talent were all it took to be a star, Tuk Smith would have cemented himself among the world’s most notorious and beloved songwriters a long while ago. But in a business filled with loaded dice and bloated suits, Tuk remains a rock ‘n’ roll outcast.
Paradoxically, he continues to strive for that coveted spot of musical immortality that, in today’s modern world of algorithms and social media trends, remains reserved for those with the money to buy their way in or for those who are willing to lose themselves.
Tuk has been and remains: neither of the above.
Tuk’s signature sound – for any and all blessed enough to have heard it – has found a place in the upper echelon of contemporary rock n roll. For those who have yet to become familiar, it’s a bare-knuckled blend of AC/DC swagger, Cheap Trick melodicism and Thin Lizzy guitar wizardry. The man behind the sound is an absolute force.
Never willing to settle, never ready to stop, Tuk is slated to release his anticipated sophomore album in 2024. Listeners can expect more hooks that stay with them for days and choruses they can scream along to the first listen through. All of this proudly without label interference or hindrance.
At any rate, the kid is rockin’ like the rent is due… …because it is.
