#SPOTTED: A GREAT BIG WORLD IN TORONTO FOR “IS ANYBODY OUT THERE?”
2014’s first big Breakthrough Act in Pop Music is A Great Big World. The New York-based Group consisting of Chad Vaccarino and Ian Axel are currently in Toronto, just kicking-off their first Tour in our City in support of their forthcoming Major Label Debut, Is There Anybody Out There?.
After hearing Axel perform as a Solo Act, Vaccarino asked to partner with him as a Duo, then heading to the Studio to collaborate on some Music together. It was after Megastar Christina Aguilera heard their Song performed on So You Think You Can Dance that things began to take-off quickly for A Great Big World, adding her gorgeous understated Vocals to the Track.
In addition to achieving Double-Platinum Sales in the U.S., Say Something (Video here) has had performed v. well commercially, peaking at number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 Chart and similarly so at number six on the Canadian Hot 100. The Track received great boosts in exposure as the Duo performed on the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and also the American Music Awards. Not bad, huh?
A Great Big World wowed an intimate Audience last night at the Drake Hotel on Queen West with Fans Tweeting their reactions from “so good” to “amazing”. Today they are doing the rounds with a mix of Radio and Television Interviews, some which saw Axel performing Say Something live with only his Keyboard, including visits to CTV‘s The Marilyn Denis Show, 104.5 CHUM, 98.1 CHFI and 680 NEWS.
Billy and I had the pleasure of meeting the awful gracious Vaccarino and Axel on one of their Stopoffs today at 98.1 CHFI‘s The Erin & Mike Morning Show. It was super-cold out but they were nice enough to stop, sign some Autographs and chat. This definitely is only the beginning as the Duo’s Album launches next week and they’ll be touring multiple Cities across the U.S. to promote. Check CHFI‘s Media Gallery later for Audio of their Appearance.
