A Great Big World (ft. Ian Axel) / Allie Moss / Bess Rogers
December 14, 2012
A Great Big World is the new incarnation of Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino. Last year, Ian Axel
released his debut album, This is the New Year, the title track of his album which featured
his songwriting partner Chad Vaccarino. Ian and Chad’s hit song “This is the New Year” was
featured in Garry Marshall’s film “New Year’s Eve,” and used as the theme song for MTV’s “I
Used to Be Fat.” Additionally, Ian and Chad’s self-produced video racked up over one million hits
on Vevo/YouTube. As a live act, the duo appeared on the nationally syndicated Rachael Ray
Show, completed their first national tour and opened for Ingrid Michaelson, Five for Fighting, and
Glee star Matthew Morrison. Ian and Chad received critical acclaim from publications including
NPR, SPIN, and New York Magazine. However, they are most known for their playful live
performances, which feature warm, engaging interplay with audiences, and are reminiscent of the
intimacy and energy of performers like Randy Newman, Elton John, and Simon & Garfunkel.
This show also features Allie Moss and Bess Rogers.
