The Big Dirty have been going in some form or another for several years, however they solidified their line up and name in 2019. They had some great success throughout 2019, with performances at festivals such as Wildfire in Scotland and a support slot playing alongside iconic rockers, Heavy Pettin’.
In September 2019 they were invited by BBC Music Introducing in Northampton to record a live session at Maida Vale studios, performing tracks from their debut album, which they released in the summer of 2020. Despite all the hardships that the COVID-19 pandemic forced upon the creative industry throughout 2020, they managed to keep growing their fanbase and got features in Hard Rock Hell magazine as well as Emerging Rock Bands magazine.
They released a surprise cover of Walking In The Air from The Snowman at Christmas, which was very well received, and caught the interest of industry professionals, some of whom reached out to them to discuss possible working relationships going forward into the new year. They are very excited for 2021. They are working on new music and are aiming to have a new single out in Spring.
