Just wanted to introduce my new band The Big Heat. I’ve been doing a lot of solo stuff and slowly assembling a band to back me up for bigger gigs, but kept coming to the realization that I was not the vocalist to be in front of a band. I’m fine and doing acoustic shows, but every time I sing in front of a band no matter how much work I put into it I can’t get the presence to stand out and not hurt my throat. So I found a friend of a friend who has a great blues type of voice and brought him into this band and we christened ourselves with the new name. We’re aiming to do a mix of old school R&B with heavy blues. This is a video from one of our recent rehearsals – although I recorded the audio onto my computer, mixed down roughly and then added it to the video. Hope you enjoy one of our original tunes.
