bigIdeas was conceived by four friends in the summer of 2005. The vision was simple; create a fresh new spin on the music they loved, and perform it live to as many people as they could. After carefully crafting an original set the band quickly took on the next inevitable task in any bands development, playing live shows and developing a fan base. It would not be long before bigIdeas were playing their own shows and filling famous venues like The Horseshoe and El Macombo. After one such performance, the group was approached by budding Toronto producer Brian Moncarz (Pilate, The Junction) and in together in 2006 they would complete the bands first EP entitled “The Great Escape”. Built on driving rhythms and sprawling soundscapes, the band showcases an emotional set that combines epic elements into the constraints of delicate and well written songs. From the haunting “Almost”, to the pounding attack of Bullets”, each composition bares a unique energy of its own. Now, with rave reviews and interest stemming from as far as legendary producer Bob Ezrin (Pink Floyd, Kiss), the band appear to be on the verge of greatness.
Currently based in Toronto, Canada, bigIdeas is Bob Mills (vocals, keyboards), David Yoon (drums), Daniel Truderung (guitars) and Michael Deacon (bass).
