Little,Big is a musical and artistic collaboration between singer/artist Dana Young and musician/composer Chuck Meyer.
They met on a street corner in Brooklyn in 2007. She thought, “That’s my bassist.” He thought, “That’s my singer.” It was musical love at first sight. Dana’s wide range and pop sensibility meshed perfectly with Chuck’s hook-driven lead bass. After adding Chuck’s drum loops and Dana’s illustrations, Little,Big emerged as a new, more playful take on being a rock band. They've spent the last two years making music for dancing to in your most awesome pajamas.
Their debut album, Pins and Narwhals, is a product of their story – nine songs stripped of pretention and full of confidence, energy and fun. The sound mixes sequenced drums and sparse keyboards with dirty bass and intuitive pop melodies. These are paired with Dana’s pencil drawings to carry surreal but universal messages about relationships and play.
Recent venues include the Knitting Factory, Glasslands, Death By Audio, and Cameo Gallery (Brooklyn), Cake Shop, Pianos, and The Tank Gallery (Manhattan), Gallery 58 and Automata Chino (NJ) and T.T. the Bears (Cambridge, MA). Recent festivals include the 2010 Northside Music Festival in Brooklyn.
