Local band Big Break returns with new album

Submitted
Release party April 6
The popular local funk rock band Big Break is pleased to announce that its long-awaited full-length album, Headful Of Melodies, will be available everywhere digitally March 22. The release features 10 heartfelt lyric-driven songs that come directly from adversity and tribulation.
Tracking began in 2014 but was violently disrupted when songwriter and band founder David Myers was in a motorcycle crash that left him paralyzed below the chest.
After years of rehabilitation of body and spirit, Myers and his bandmates have completed the project, a testament to human perseverance and optimism. That outlook permeates these songs, whose lyrics emphasize positivity and a progressive mindset.
Musically, the band draws on a plethora of influences — from rock and funk to reggae and psychedelia — providing a rich, infectiously rhythmic backdrop for these stories born of hard life experience.
“Hopefully people will feel a real connection with us, and maybe find some comfort and strength in these songs.” Myers says.
Big Break is throwing a release party on April 6 at Grievous Gallery, 111 W Bank St.
Digital pre-sale of the new record starts 3/15 with digital distribution set to take off 3/22. The first two singles (“One More Time” and “Run With It”) are already available on all digital platforms.
