Hailing from the North Carolina countryside, or “The Middle of Nowhere,” as it is lovingly dubbed on their debut album, the 6-headed musical monster known as 'Big Something' has steadily become one of the most unique and exciting rock bands to emerge fromthe Southeast.
Huge rhythms paired with soaring guitars, E.W.I (electronic wind instrument), synths, horns and soulful vocals rise to the top of their signature sound taking listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. With a diverse and growing catalog of timeless songs that tell stories, and a high energy live show fusing improvisational alternative rock with funk, reggae, jazz, electronica, heavy metal and more --it's no secret why their fun-loving grassroots community of fans is so enamored with the band.
After over a decade together with 6 full-length studio albums produced by Grammy-nominee John Custer and even their own Summer music festival The Big What?, Big Something have carved out their own niche in the live music community and continue to grow nationally landing marquee appearances at Bonnaroo, Peach Music Festival, Lock'n, Summer Camp and Electric Forest as well as critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, Guitar World, Glide Magazine and Jambase
The Brothers inimitable live performances have captured fans across the musical landscape leading to marquee support slots and major festival bookings. After Supporting a G Love & Special Sauce tour in 2018, G Love asked the brothers to tour as his backing band and open his solo tour. They repeated that feat again in 2019.” In between, the brothers completed their own headline tours in addition to supporting major artist like Stick Figure, 311 (invited to perform on the 311 cruise immediately after opening for 311 by their management,) Pepper, Galactic, Stephen Marley, and playing major festivals Sunfest, Cali Roots, Gasparilla, Rootfire and Summer Camp finishing 2019 with a 35- date tour with Iya Terra. In early 2020, the brothers toured supporting Iration, Ballyhoo! and Iya Terra The pandemic canceled a future tour with Badfish (A Tribute to Sublime,) a second run with Iration, plus numerous festivals. Making the best of their time off, they recorded remote collaboration videos with members of “The Lumineers” “Gary Clark Jr.” Steve Miller Band” and “Iration.”
