A Great Big World
The magical journey of A Great Big World – Ian Axel and Chad King – 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. It spawned the viral sensation “Everyone Is Gay” and “This Is the New Year,” which was performed by the cast on Fox’s Glee.

Soon after, Black Magnetic/Epic Records offered the duo a deal, and issued “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. More tv performances followed (The American Music Awards, The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show), culminating with the song’s release on AGBW’s debut album, Is There Anybody Out There? (January 2014).

“Say Something” ultimately occupied the #1 spot on iTunes, Billboard’s Digital Songs, Digital Tracks, Adult Top 40, and Hot Dance Club Songs charts, as well as Spotify and Shazam, in addition to going Top 10 on sales charts in 19 countries. After turning in a riveting performance at Clive Davis’ prestigious annual pre-Grammy® party in January 2014, A Great Big World toured from May through August across the U.S. and Canada, the UK, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Asia.

For the remainder of 2014, into 2015, A Great Big World was hard at work on new music that they were eager to present to their legions of fans across the globe. The release of “Hold Each Other” in July 2015 introduced the arrival of their second album When the Morning Comes last November. The band’s newest single “Oasis” harkens back to the honest, sentimental songwriting found in “Say Something,” and sets the stage for a new year full of touring.
Allie Moss - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Allie Moss
Allie Moss was born and bred on the shores of New Jersey. So it would be right to assume that she loves saltwater & big hair. She is a songwriter, vocalist, and musician. Over the last 10 years, she's toured extensively with Ingrid Michaelson on rhythm guitar & backing vocals. When not touring, Allie digs into her passions: teaching & studying voice, writing songs, cooking, yoga and --more recently-- group cycling.

In 2011, Allie released her debut album "Late Bloomer" which includes songs that have been heard on Bones, Pretty Little Liars, Parenthood & a UK BT Infinity ad. In July 2014, her cover of Imogen Heap's "Wait it Out" was included on the soundtrack for the motion picture "Wish I Was Here." This show is a celebration of the release of her upcoming new EP "The Other Side". Pre-order & exclusives will be available through PledgeMusic.com.
