When an artist is in deep contact with his music and truly believes in his creation, that music becomes Art. In the overcrowded and frenetic nowadays music scene, it is hard to find artists who take the time to create timeless songs, meaningful and emotional. TuskHead has the gift of turning dreams and emotions into memories and feelings, which only great artists have.

Patrick van Zandwijk, aka TuskHead, is a talented musician, singer, and songwriter whose sound is unique and distinguishable. Tuskhead shapes his sound, incorporating a blend of genres that, perfectly balanced, create that distinctive sound and emotional vibes that are his trademark.

"TuskHead has the gift of turning dreams and emotions into memories and feelings, which only great artists have."

More than 'just' a solo artist

Besides writing music as a solo artist Patrick van Zandwijk also writes for and performs with rock duo The Attic Getaway (with Jeroen Hardeman, singer and guitarist of Ten:15) and the folk/country busking duo Purple Patron (with Ronald Woudenberg). 

Purple Patron

Purple Patron are a two-man busking band by Ronald Woudenberg and Patrick van Zandwijk. After creating music together for over 10 years it was time to turn the collaboration into an official band. In early 2019 the two started writing music under the band name of Woodwick.

In May 2020 Woodwick decided to change their name to Purple Patron. Shortly afterwards the first Purple Patron EP ‘Dating The Blues‘ released on June 16. At the end of June Purple Patron did a short busking tour around Germany, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. Purple Patron are currently working on their next covers EP. 

Catch Purple Patron playing live on the streets of big cities in The Netherlands and on their busking tours around Europe. Take a look on their Facebook page for the current tour dates!
