I was fortunate enough to receive a heads up about soulful songstress, Elaine Faye, lead singer of weareTheBigBang. Elaine, accompanied by bandmate Cheyenne Jolene – Vox, create a vibrant rock ‘n’ roll sound with psychedelic twists and turns that keep listeners curious about what’s next. Elaine effortlessly traverses every known high and low on the vocal spectrum – she’ll leave you with chills.
Listed in Music Connection Magazine as “one of the best unsigned bands to see live” four years in a row (2011 – 2014), WeAreTheBigBang are an up and coming soul shakin’, groove makin, alt soul band from Los Angeles CA. With a sound combination of Amy Winehouse + Sam and Dave + Fitz and the Tantrums, WeAreTheBigBang has hit the scene with their unique and alternative take on southern California soul.
Finishing their last year of education at the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, the band became friends and began developing their diverse image and unique sound. They can now be heard on numerous local and internet radio stations (including Kiss FM in NYC and Utica), in the air on Delta Airlines, and on TV (VH1’s Mob Wives, Single Ladies, Love and Hip Hop, MTV’s Jersey Shore, Teen Wolf, and Snooki and Jwoww, TNT’s Boston’s Finest, Lifetime’s Dance Moms, Bring it!, the CW morning news, and many more). They’ve also had the opportunity to get groovy at Bonnaroo, Coachella, SXSW, Make Music Pasadena, KISS FM’s Wango Tango music festival and a private event held by the Recording Academy. Constantly hitting the road with a high energy interactive show, the band has opened for a hand full of talented artists including Allen Stone, Nikka Costa, Lights, Vintage Trouble, The Arkells, Honey Honey, and the Day Lights. They continue to successfully build a strong buzz and create a continuously growing and dedicated fan base with each show they funk up.
