Sibelius helps shape Tauk’s “Brokedown King”

New York jam-rockers Tauk today carries a profile of up-and-coming New York-based band, Tauk, a quintet of classically-trained young musicians aged between 22 and 26 whose sound and influences are eclectic: says Melissa Henderson in her profile, “a definite resemblance to the stank of the Chili Peppers, the swirling arrangements of Mike Keneally and the soaring vision of another of their heroes, Stevie Wonder.”

The band first got together more than 10 years ago, and has managed to stay together despite each of the members going to a different university. Says Melissa:

The guys used Sibelius, a musical notation software program, to e-mail bits and pieces of songs back and forth to each other as they wrote the bulk of what became [debut album] Brokedown King.

Tauk’s album is available now on iTunes. Read the whole of’s profile here.
