A GREAT BIG WORLD TO RELEASE THREE SONG EP MAY 21
First Single Is Fan-Fueled Hit “This Is the New Year”
 
SPRING TOUR KICKS OFF ON DAY OF EP RELEASE
12 City Club Tour Begins In Cleveland
 
“THIS IS THE NEW YEAR” COVERED ON GLEE
A Great Big World Gets A Great Big Boost from Film and Television Placement
When they asked their fans to help them create a tweet-by tweet lyric video for the song, their fans went above and beyond. Not only did they tweet lines from “This is The New Year,” they illustrated them with photos and videos. The video perfectly captured both the feeling and the spirit of the song, much more an expression of a fan driven community than a crowd-sourced clip.
It was no surprise that A Great Big World engaged their audience to the extent that they did.  Last summer, when they launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their endeavors, their fans rallied, and A Great Big World raised much more money than they were looking for.
That’s the kind of effect Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino — otherwise known as A Great Big World — has upon listeners. With a pop sensibility and a whole lot of heart, A Great Big World creates the kind of music that people connect with.  ”It’s optimistic, hopeful pop music,” Chad says. “There are fewer songs about heartbreak and more about the meaning of life. But even the most painful of our songs are hopeful.”
Music supervisors were amongst the first to realize the impact of A Great Big World’s music.   The music supervisor for Glee chose “This Is The New Year” for the cast to cover on the hit show, and the song was used as the title track for the film New Year’s Eve and the theme for MTV’s I Used To Be Fat.  Additionally, the song was featured on theAmazing Race, One Tree Hill, ESPN, and Good Morning America.
Ian and Chad met while they were attending NYU, following their passion for writing and performing while sensibly studying the music business.  When they first got together, Chad was managing Ian, but Ian also recognized Chad’s potential as a musician, and their business relationship was transformed into a musical partnership.   They began playing together in New York venues and set the pattern that’s now their M.O.:  A Great Big World perform, and people respond.  “Writing is our therapy,” Ian says.  “And when we can connect with people through our music, it’s transformational. We’re not alone. Our songs are your songs. And that’s what it’s all about.”

    Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Firefox. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know. The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon. Kudos

    This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

    Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I truly believed you’d have something interesting to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of complaining about something that you could fix if you were not too busy seeking attention.
