BIG Something began releasing one new HD video each week starting May 23. The eighth and final release of the series will post today at http://www.youtube.com/user/TheBIGSomething. The videos were filmed in HD using multiple high-end cameras and professional multi-track audio, making the quality far superior to the average live videos posted on YouTube. The band has also introduced a new interactive exploratory website that will allow fans to browse the videos and more in a fun and different way. http://StoriesFromTheMiddleOfNowhere.com/
BIG Something's debut CD release, Stories from the Middle of Nowhere, won top honors as Home Grown Music Network's "Studio Album of the Year"! "This is an expansive concept album detailing the life and times of Pinky, a figure who is part Robin Hood, part Clyde, part neighborhood Pimp. The album offers excellent musicianship and a spirit of fun as it details these adventures, proving to be a remarkable debut for BIG Something...The tracks on this album blend many different styles of rock and jam to create a savory package, lengthy in scope, well-delivered in execution...The tracks are imbued with elements of funk, jazz, fusion jam, and rock, while the story of Pinky provides a nice backdrop and centerpiece for the album...In employing robust rhythms, technically polished playing, and a sense of flair that is fun and disarming, BIG Something's debut release proves to be excellent." J. Evan Wade -www.HomeGrownMusic.net
Stories from the Middle of Nowhere was recorded and mixed in Raleigh by distinguished NC producer John Custer, who was a Grammy-nominee for his work with the southern Metal band, Corrosion of Conformity. According to the bands bass player, Doug Marshall, "recording with Custer was like getting schooled by a musical Jedi. He helped us realize our true potential as a band. And because making this album felt and sounded so dramatically different than anything else we've ever recorded, we knew it was time to re-think our band name." Prior to some lineup changes and this recording the band was previously known as The Anonymous Band.
