I’ve always wanted Big Light to reach as far as they can. As much as I wish I could be there the whole way, I couldn’t be more pumped they are forging on with a new record on the horizon and Marc Friedman holding down the bass duties. Marc is a big hero of mine, and has been for many years. What he’s already contributed to the new record is amazing, and I have no doubt he’s gonna help push this band far and beyond. I give the guys my full endorsement and hope for all the best (read Steve’s full statement here).
As mentioned above, The Well Wishers drops this fall and Big Light have been hard at work completely re-vamping their live show to complement the album. They will be previewing the new lineup and material at a bunch of West Coast dates this summer including a Friday, June 22nd appearance at the Carter Ranch Music Festival in Bootjack, CA and a special installment of the band’s monthly residency at SF’s Hotel Utah Saloon on June 24th, where Big Light will throw a full-on NEON PARTY featuring plugged-in sets from themselves and new friends Doppio. Big Light also returns to High Sierra Music Festival, where the band will play at 11 am in the Vaudeville Tent on Saturday (7/7) and at an undisclosed location at an undisclosed time on Friday (7/6) – keep your ears to the ground once you get on site. You can also catch Big Light’s chief songwriter-lead singer Fred Torphy in a Troubadour Session alongside Tim and Nicki Bluhm over this special weekend.
