melodies and seafaring ballads combined with modern pop rock
Big Sea went out on tour this summer with Seven Nations, and at long last, the
United States has a better understanding of what Canada has known for a while.
Great Big Sea is awesome!
latest album by this Newfoundland-based band, "Sea of No Cares" blends
Celtic melodies with driving acoustic guitar and excellent vocal harmonies. Like
their concerts, they'll smoothly go from a contemporary Pop Rock to a Celtic seafaring
ballad. Bewarned: Once you buy one album, you won't want to stop there!
Big Sea Discography:
of No Cares (2002)
An incredible blend of traditional Celtic music
with modern rhytms. The latest album is the perfect representation of what has
made this band so incredibly popular. The album features exquisite vocal harmonies,
plus some great songwriting. Plus, you'll find some great Celtic seafaring ballads.
Highlights include the title track "Sea of No Cares", plus, "Scolding
Wife" and "French Perfume".
and Roar (1998)
Fanastic fusion of traditional Celtic music with modern
rock & roll. This is the sixth CD by the band and features some great drinking
songs like "Mari Mac," and moving ballads like "General Taylor".
And there's even a cool cover of R.E.M.'s "End of the World."
This is the album that saw a change in the GBS sound. While there are
a number of traditional songs, it represents a move by Great Big Sea to perform
more contemporary music. You'll hear such greats as their pop hit "Consequence
Free", as well as the pub song, "I'm a Rover". And lets not forget
their great four-part harmonies in "Old Brown's Daughter".
A live look at this incredible band. Road Rage
features some of their most-popular songs. It's sort of a Best of album
with songs like "When I'm Up," "Everything Shines," and "Consequence
Free." Plus, "The Night Paddy Murphy Died" and again "Mari
Mac" all performed live with GBS fun!
