Biography

Big Break is an on the rise North Carolina based rock band with a multi genre style, incorporating elements of ska, funk, alternative, roots, reggae, and jam rock. Their influences from bands like Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Keys and even Steve Miller Band show in the artistry and song structure.
The band formed in 2011, and traveled performing all over the Carolinas to promote their first self-titled album, BIG BREAK. In the next couple weeks their 2nd compilation, a 5 song EP ‘CITY GIRL’ is released, as they are already in the studio working on the 3rd project.
The band’s singer, guitarist, and songwriter is a powerful front man. Usually barefoot, crouching and bounding with energy and passion, David Myers has a forceful confident voice, powerful moving lyrics, and stick with you leads and melodies. There are times when you are zoned in and others when you cannot resist a toetappin’. Bass player Alan Erickson is also classically trained and interchangeable, or some cases even simultaneous, on piano as well. His skill in music theory and exceptional talent resonate smooth grooves and funky bass lines. Conga player, Ashley Honbarrier, brings additional percussion and vocals. Smooth at times and fiery at others, she keeps pace with the fellas. Recent new drummer, Shade Eury, has really kicked it into gear and taken the beat to a new level. The freshest member of Big Break, Rex Baucom, has stepped in and brought his own talents taking over bass guitar. With Rex learning Big Break's repertoire so quickly, Alan has moved to play his choice keys. The extra melodies and sounds really add a lot and boast these tunes closer to an all out full production.
