For a band described as rock, Idiot Grins brings a lot of soul power to their album, Big Man. From the start, you feel the band channeling plenty of old R&B greats.
Big Man is a unique album when compared to what’s out there today. It’s a fusion of R&B, a bit of gospel and the songs sound so well together there’s hardly any filler in this 11 track album.
If you’re searching for something fresh, Big Man is definitely something you don’t want to miss out listening to.
