Big Something
Big Something
A six-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 B-52s, who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.

Recently the band has released their fourth 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 three times with three different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014). BIG Something has been featured in Relix Magazine, Guitar World, Glide Magazine, JamBase, ArtistDirect, and more.
The Werks
The Werks
On their forthcoming LP Magic, melodic visionaries The Werks transcend their funk rock roots while never losing their identity. Poignant songwriting and engaging improvisation come together on a record that showcases their maturation as a multidimensional group of uniquely creative musicians.

The virtuosic rhythm junkies of The Werks have released four highly acclaimed studio albums over the past ten years - Synapse (2009), The Werks (2012), Mr. Smalls Sessions EP (2014), and Inside a Dream (2015) - performed well over one thousand shows (including launching their own multi-day music festival The Werk Out), and released countless live recordings including last year’s Live at The Werk Out live album. In that time they’ve earned a devoted fan base across the world and reputation as one of the most energetic, compelling, and downright entertaining live acts in the business. They’ve developed a hard won confidence, and a willingness to fearlessly chart new sonic territory on Magic.
