The Locals

The Locals® are an alt-rock trio from Chicago who are steadily winning fans and devotees with their CD "Big Picture".

Fronted by singer and songwriter Yvonne Doll the Locals are a staple of the Chicago music scene. Their lineup of Doll, bassist Christy Nunes and drummer Kirk Snedeker was finalized when Snedeker joined in late 2006.

"Big Picture" is the Locals' fourth studio effort and their first full length CD in almost 6 years. Their style has covered the range from singer/songwriter to borderline jam band. But while this CD contains subtle winks at the past, "Big Picture" is unapologetically guitar heavy alt-pop. Think The Pretenders meet The Pixies meet the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Doll's distinct and powerful vocals cut confidently through the band, becoming the perfect compliment to the always solid, sometimes frenzied rhythm section of Nunes and Snedeker.

This is not look-the-other-way shoe-gazer rock, the Locals are a face-first fork-full of attitude and fun.

"Big Picture" was produced, recorded and mixed by Steven Gillis (Filter).
