From Burlington, NC - Winners of the Home Grown Music Network's 2010 "New Band of the Year" award, 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.
Steadily building a following both regionally and nationally with music that is a high-energy collaborative of funk-rock, middle-eastern, electronica, and metal; The Mantras' music is a fusion that will shake your knees and rattle your toes. Their rising profile has resulted in an incredible year so far, seeing The Mantras and their members in numerous festival performances and sharing stages in double-bills and direct support for the likes of Umphrey's McGee, Eoto, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Papadosio, Zoogma, The Werks, and many more.
