ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Drawing on the influences of such artists as Brian Wilson, Jason Falkner, the Beach Boys, and Jellyfish, the members of Big Kid believe there's nothing more exciting or infectious than a great tap-your-steering wheel, sing-along melody.

Started in San Diego, California in the fall of 2002, Big Kid grew out of a number of songwriting sessions between guitarist Damian Hagger and drummer Steve Clark (who, coincidentally, attended the Berklee College of Music at the same time in the mid-90's, but didn't know each other).

As their songs began to take shape and grow, the idea of starting a full-fledged band came into focus.

Adding Steve's brother, Doug, on bass and working with Los Angeles based vocalist Ken Stacey, the band took to the studio in April 2003 to record their debut CD.

While in pre-production for the CD, the band approached David Bash, promoter and manager of the highly successful, annual International Pop Overthrow with a few of their early demos.

Excited by the music, David invited Big Kid to perform at the 2003 IPO showcase in Los Angeles, as well as invited them to be included on the 2003 International Pop Overthrow compilation CD (released on the Not Lame Recording label).

During this period, Steve, Doug and Damian, also began talking with singer/guitarist Craig Henry, a friend and former musical cohort from Los Angeles, about joining Big Kid.

A talented singer and actor, Craig brought a sense of excitement and energy to Big Kid's live performances.

"You Must Be Kidding" has received numerous accolades since its release.

One of the songs, "Pop Song", was a top ten finalist in the 2003 USA National Songwriting Competition.

In addition, three of the songs ("Feather", "Pop Song" & "The Girl is Alright") were included on the DVD of the hit MTV show "Laguna Beach: The Real Orange County".

Big Kid is working on a new CD and plays occasional gigs in Los Angeles.

Big Kid is pretty much an awesome band. Im not sure else what to say. Love the music.

Christopher Grey

The best value on cd baby. Period.
Big Kid's You Must Be Kidding has quickly become one of my favorite albums of the year. I hear traces of Jellyfish, Adam Daniel, and Jiffipop to be sure. The songs are filled with great hooks, soaring melodies and skin tight arrangements. Preview tracks 7 and 10 for a real treat.

Worth a Second Listen
I hated this CD the first time I heard it. It seemed unoriginal. But the sound grows on you.

Scott

Terrific Pop
Terrific music. Both CD's are equally great. Something you can listen to over and over without any bad tracks. Very uplifting.

A Large Slice Of Power Pop Bliss
I've found this CD to be an irresistable blend of just great pop rock music. The melodies stick in your head, the choruses soar, and lyrics have an endearingly upbeat quality to them. Best songs for me include "Feather" and "Change Your Mind"; that said, there really isn't a bad track on the album. I've listened to this CD numerous times and is one the best CDs I've ever found on CD Baby. If you like power pop or just flat-out great music, you will dig this album.

Bought a new computer and When I Met the Girl was in the sample playlist, couldn't wait to hear the rest of the Big Kid CD. If you like Fountains of Wayne, Ben Folds or ever heard of Swag, go here. I now own both Big Kid collections. I guess you could say "I'm a BIG KID (fan) NOW!"
