In the band's four fun years together, Tarkin delighted audiences around BC and the Pacific Northwest with original and traditional accoustic folk music.

Tarkin's two albums of traditional and original songs of Canada's west coast are available online through CD Baby: "The Ghost of that Whiskey" (2007) and "Charming to the Last" (2008).

As of June, 2008, Tarkin is on indefinite hiatus. Life, love and music have called its members away from BC, to new adventures.
