The Big Three - EPK
In the 1960’s The Big Three were the kings of Merseybeat rock and roll, with their electrifying live shows and incredible sound.
Now, 60 years later, The Big Three are back, and they’re putting rock and roll back on top where it belongs.
Jay Osborne, Chris Weeks, Tom Dunlea and Tom Sowinski have lived and breathed rock and roll their whole lives. For them it can only ever be played with passion, with grit and with the huge, exhilarating sound that the style deserves.
In October 2020 The Big Three recorded an EP consisting of all original music, written by band members Chris Weeks and Jay Osborne.
Over 5 days the band recorded, mixed and produced their debut EP 'The EP' at Newcastles Blast Recording Studios with award winning producer Alex McArthur.
The Song 'Head Over Heels' is the bands first single release as the new Big Three line up.
The band released the track 'The Old Ways Are The Best' from their self titled EP in April 2021 and it was met with a rave reception, receiving extensive radio play in the UK, the USA, Germany, Australia and across the world.
This track is a great example of what the band are all about, musically. Its an old school style but with a modern twist!
The Big Three's next single 'The Animal' is a hybrid track of vintage soul, funk and rock n’ roll. This will be the band’s next single release and will be unleashed onto the world in August 2021 with various international radio stations all set to play this driving, catchy tune.
This track perfectly shows the musical makeup of the band, with influences from bands and styles old and new.
The band recorded a new EP in late 2021, labelled 'The Sugar Ray's Session'.
This EP consists of some of the bands favourite Rock N' Roll classic tracks as well as some never before released Big Three originals. The EP was recorded at Essex' ‘Sugar Ray’s’, a studio that uses original 50’s recording equipment to give their recordings the authentic Rock N’ Roll sound.
In 2017, when the boys were playing rock and roll up and down the UK, they happened to meet Brian Griffiths and Johnny Hutchinson, two legends of Merseybeat and original members of The Big Three. They quickly found common ground…they shared that same rock and roll fire and became firm friends. The boys were then invited to become a new incarnation of the band and continue the rock and roll legacy of The Big Three.
Since then, the boys have recorded an EP of original Rock N' Roll music, they’ve performed throughout the UK, including at The Big Three’s spiritual home, The Cavern Club and during the pandemic of 2020, played a live-streamed gig to hundreds of households in support of the grassroots music scene.
Now, with the live music scene opening up again, a catalogue of the very best vintage and brand new rock and roll music to unleash on the world and a sound that’s set to thrill audiences around the world, the future’s very bright for The Big Three.
