Big River announce the release of their brand new single;
Released via digital outlets on 22nd August.
The track is the first to be released from “The West Sessions” EP and is the first original song written by the band and local songwriter Matt Knox.
The “West Sessions” comprise of four tracks recorded completely live during a beautiful July Sunday afternoon at an English countryside pavilion.
The band all recorded in the same room, a large hall which gave a drum sound reminiscent of Headley Grange recordings from the 70’s. Completely old school and influenced by the classic “Live at the BBC” sessions and more recently the Radio 1 Live Lounge, this is the format Big River wanted for their first recordings.
Recorded and produced by Paul West and mastered by Pete Maher (Jack White, Thunder, Linkin Park, The Rolling Stones, U2), this was the perfect team to capture the live sound of Big River that is becoming a firm favourite on UK stages.
A formidable Live act, Big River captured hearts instantly with a storming live radio session just a few months after being formed, this led to them being quoted as “Kent’s next big thing” and have already supported Dr Feelgood and the Frankie Miller FULLHOUSE band on a handful of UK dates.
Dave “Bucket” Colwell (former guitarist with Bad Company) Has quoted the band as ‘BIG RIVER – Guitars, Guts, Groove, Gravesend & GREAT!!! Check ’em out, You’ll have a ball GUARANTEED!’
Big River are: Adam Bartholomew (Vocals), Damo Fawsett (Guitar), Ant Wellman (Bass), Luke Calvert (Drums).
