Jimkata is a nationally touring electro-rock band blending heavy beats, synthy hooks, and big guitars to create music with both modern and timeless appeal. Their latest EP, the 80’s pop tinged Ghosts & Killers, is an anthemic dance-pop nugget complete with 21st century, infectious guitar hooks and is available as a free download at jimkata.com. They are currently taking their electro-rock circus to a town near you.
“Jimkata proves that rock-based music still has a place in the world of four-on-the-floor beats.”
“The band’s powerful drumming and guitar work ride the same wave, catching synthetic high fives and whispering rock n’ roll lyricism out over the constant current of their sonic ocean.”
“What this generation needs more of, a band with a fresh sound that’s influenced by great music, with an honest and positive perspective about our place in society.”
BIG Something is an alternative rock group with a BIG groove. A tight six-piece ensemble that brings arena sized grooves to every stage they play. This is funk, fit for the future, featuring crystalline synths, wailing saxes, and guitars that shred established musical boundaries. Their debut album "Stories from the Middle of Nowhere" was recorded in Raleigh, NC with Grammy-nominated producer John Custer and was named the Home Grown Music Network's Best Studio Album of 2010. Each song is something special: catchy and charming, layered and soulful, with colorful characters that embody the best and worst in us all. One listen will lead to many and you'll realize you've discovered that BIG Something. Winners of the Home Grown Music Network's 2010 "New Band of the Year" award.
In December 2011 BIG Something released "Mad Science: Live at the Costume Ball", a new live recording captured in front of 600+ fans on 10.29.2011 at the Lincoln Theatre in Raleigh. Stream this album and the award winning "Stories From the Middle of Nowhere" free at www.BigSomething.net

"It's not a good band, it's a great band!" – Artie Kornfeld (co-founder of Woodstock '69, former VP Capitol Records)
