    A Great Big World

    Pop

    The magical journey of A Great Big World began in the music practice rooms of NYU (New York University) where the two were attending college. In 2012, after a few twists and turns of fate, the friends formed A Great Big World and released a six-song EP funded by Kickstarter. Soon after, they released “Say Something” as their first official single in 2013. Its terse, tearful piano and Axel’s heavenly hypnotic vocals tugged on heartstrings, and struck a chord. After hearing it during a pivotal segment of Fox's So You Think You Can Dance, Christina Aguilera fell in love with the song. She collaborated with AGBW on a new recording of the track that they subsequently performed together on NBC’s The Voice, which launched it to #1 on iTunes all around the world.  
     
    2015 saw the arrival of their second album When the Morning Comes, featuring singles “Hold Each Other," which celebrates love of all kinds, and "Won't Stop Running," which was King's powerful response to his experiences living with multiple sclerosis. Axel and King are currently writing brand new music for release later this year.

    Whiskey Heart : No Artificial Anything

    Rebecca Haviland is a petite, polite, pixie-haired 20-something singer who, when she opens her mouth, channels a furious, beat-up, fed-up blues diva standing in a snowstorm at a bus station at 4 in the morning two dollars short of a ticket to nowhere. Her songwriting partner/producer/singer/songwriter, Chris Anderson, only stops playing 4-stringed electric and acoustic instruments long enough to eat and listen to Tom Waits, Warren Zevon, Willie Nelson, Randy Newman and David Gray.

    Together, Haviland and Anderson comprise the hotter-than-hell alt-country act Whiskey Heart, who’ve been performing around Manhattan and elsewhere long enough to hone a tight, crisp live show, headlining at Rockwood Music Hall and dozens of other venues where people dig their down-home, all-natural act exploding with heart, soul and guts. The two met at NYC’s Red Lion in 2003 shortly after graduating from Purchase University, where they'd never crossed paths while students. Their common interests and musical tastes quickly formed the nucleus of an eyeball-to-eyeball song and performance collaboration, though, and Whiskey Heart was born. The band began gigging and Haviland and Anderson soon found themselves headlining wherever they appeared – with fans clamoring ever-more-loudly for a recording.

    Their debut album, “Rebecca Haviland and Whiskey Heart,” self-produced and co-written by Haviland and Anderson, was recorded live in the studio with full band, featuring Todd Caldwell on Hammond B3 (Crosby Stills & Nash), Rich Hinman on pedal steel and electric guitar (Rosanne Cash, Ben Kweller), and Kenny Shaw on drums (Abby Payne, Hurrah! A Bolt Of Light). It includes the singles “Collide With Me” and “It’s Not Wrong.”
