It’s an evening of hits with A Great Big World, including “Say Something,” “When the Morning Comes,” “Is There Anybody Out There,” and much more.

The magical journey of A Great Big World began in the music practice rooms of NYU (New York University) where Ian Axel and Chad King attended college.  In 2012, after a few twists and turns of fate, the friends formed A Great Big World and released a six-song EP funded by Kickstarter.  Soon after, they released “Say Something” as their first official single in 2013.  It’s tense, tearful piano and Axel’s heavenly hypnotic vocals tugged on heartstrings, and struck a chord.  After hearing it during a pivotal segment of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance, Christina Aguilera fell in love with the song.  She collaborated with A Great Big World on a new recording of the track that they subsequently performed together on NBC’s The Voice, which launched it to #1 on iTunes all around the world.

2015 saw the arrival of their second album When the Morning Comes, featuring singles “Hold Each Other,” which celebrates love-of-all kinds, and “Won’t Stop Running,” which was King’s powerful response to his experiences living with multiple sclerosis. Axel and King are currently writing brand new music for release later this year.

Starting off the night is singer, songwriter and guitarist Allie Moss.  She performs regularly as a guitarist and backup vocalist for singer/songwriter and friend Ingrid Michaelson. Allie’s songs have been featured on TV – including “Something to Hold Onto” on Bones and “Corner” was featured on Pretty Little Liars.  Her latest EP is “The Other Side.”
