Big River To Release New Single 13/8/16
Big River release their brand new single 'Mama' via digital outlets on Monday 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 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 was the format Big River wanted for their first recording. 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. Big River are Adam Bartholomew (vocals), Damo Fawsett (guitar), Ant Wellman (bass) and Luke Calvert (drums).
