Hailing from Australia’s South East Coast in Brisbane, Big Dinner formed in early 2018 as a three-piece.
The band has since grown to a four-piece outfit incorporating elements of pop, rock, and jazz to create a unique blend of genres.
The boys are fascinated by all types of music, from traditional jazz to 2000’s electronica, contemporary punk to indie folk. These influences stew in the writing process to create the music of Big Dinner – a sound synonymous with modern Australian Indie-Rock.
BIG BLUE EYES
Big Blue Eyes is the solo recording project behind 19-year-old Ryan Smart, a Sunshine Coast multi-instrumentalist and DIY producer. A die-hard music fan from an early age, Ryan blends his heavy influence of Australian indie-rock staples with his knack for groove and hooks, to bring his own fresh and invigorating sound to the table. Nifty bass lines, driving guitars, and uniquely chill yet driven vocal style all comes together in his DIY recordings, that are entirely self-engineered and produced.
Littered with bruised optimism over a mural coloured by dreamy indie-rock, Sammm. draws melancholic sentiments from growing up, heartbreak, and overcoming addiction.
His sophomore EP, ‘Fresh Sheet Feeling’ further showcased his angsty, yet elegantly restrained vocal tone, while also blending Sammm.’s punk roots with lucid indie-rock tones.
Sammm. is a dynamic stage energy, captivating live audiences with his brutally authentic songwriting. It’s solid sad boy bop pop.
