Album Notes
Brother Big Bad has a penchant for punching out addictive pop hooks nestled comfortably in slick funk grooves. What they may lack in derivativeness, predictability or social graces, they more than make up for with ambition, enthusiasm and musical prowess.

A single listen to a track off of Brother Big Bad’s first full-length release These Are Things You Already Know, their self-titled debut EP or a visit to one of their notoriously tight live shows leads to one inevitable conclusion: these boys love to play.

Penned in equal parts by front-men “Sheriff” Andy Carroll (bass, vocals) and D.J. Phillips (guitar, vocals), the music of Brother Big Bad combines the irreverent wit of Ben Folds and Barenaked Ladies, the seemingly haphazard playfulness of Rusted Root, the undeniable melodic hooks of David Mead and Michael Jackson, the frisky funk of Maroon 5 and Robert Randolph and the bluesy sophistication of Stevie Ray Vaughan. The result is an irresistible catalogue of original material that critics have called “eclectically unique” [Static Magazine] and “clever” [Blues Bunny] and that guitarist D.J.’s mom has described as “super-neat.”

With an obvious enjoyment of their craft, an ardent and blossoming fan-base held in a close community with constant web updates and amusing blog postings, plus the rippling abs of drummer Marc Bohn, it is easy to see why Brother Big Bad has already performed at the 2006 and 2007 Red Gorilla Music Fest in Austin, Texas during South by Southwest, why they were selected out of hundreds of acts to participate in the 2006 CMEAS East Anglia Tour of England and then asked to return for a more expansive 2007 CMEAS UK Spring Tour, and why nearly 200 college radio stations added them to their rotations in their first radio campaign.

The members of Brother Big Bad owe a great deal of their musical experience to having the unique privilege of performing in theatrical venues nationwide in the on-stage bands of such productions as: The Lovely Liebowitz Sisters, The Medora Musical, Honky Tonk Angels, A Closer Walk with Patsy Cline, Hank and My Honky Tonk Heroes and Menopause: The Musical. This background of professional musicianship gives BBB a distinct air of complete comfort on stage and on the road that other bands often take years to develop.
