BIG SOMETHING

with BOBBY LEE RODGERS

January 20

8:00 pm

A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG
Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners
on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has
quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the
Southeast. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top
of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the
ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Umphrey’s McGee, Galactic,
moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s who have all tapped Big Something
as direct support.
Recently the band has released their 4th full-length studio album, Tumbleweed,
which was recorded once again with the help of grammy nominated producer
and Carolina Music Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient – John Custer
(Corrosion of Conformity). He has produced all of their albums including 2014’s
Truth Serum, which was named Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music
Network, making Big Something the only band ever to win this award 3 times
with 3 different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014). BIG Something has been
featured in Relix Magazine, Guitar World, Glide Magazine, JamBase,
ArtistDirect, and more.
On the release of Tumbleweed
“Big Something returns with their 4th full length studio album produced by John
Custer (Corrosion of Conformity). Recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in
Asheville, NC – Tumbleweed features 8 tracks that span over an hours worth of
mind bending musical entertainment. Through the fascinating work of its shining
musicians, Big Something grooves tightly with polished precision. And
Tumbleweed offers jam out thrills and audio splendor, but it also showcases just
the right amount of variety to keep things fresh and exciting, which is paramount
when the songs are between five to ten minutes long. It’s an incredibly satisfying,
if not innovative, release that fuses alternative rock, psych rock, reggae rock, and
funk with sprinkles of electronica and a dash of bluegrass that purrs with enough
signature brilliance that makes it sound all their own. Standouts include
“Tumbleweed,” “Song For Us,” “Passenger,” “In The Middle,” and “Waves.”
Whether in the studio or live on stage, Big Something remains indomitable, and
Tumbleweed is by all definitions the band’s most captivating, ambitious work to
date.”
