St. Louis: Entertainment
Big Data to Headline Post-Race Concert Presented By
Big Data is a paranoid electronic music project from the Internet, formed out of a general distrust for technology and The Cloud (despite a growing dependence on them). Helmed by producer, Alan Wilkis, Big Data aims to explore the relationship between man and machine, and how the internet has reshaped the human experience.
The band was formed in Chicago in October 2009 as an acoustic group by core members lead singer, songwriter and guitarist Kristina Cottone, and singer, violinist and saxophonist Kim Kozel. Since then, Honey and 45s’ unique sound has evolved by adding bassist Sean Tatum, lead guitarist Jon Gould, and drummer Jarad Kleinstein. Dubbed “The Band of Chicago” by Nanobot Rock Reviews, Honey & the 45s draws from jazz and blues roots but delivers a new soulful rock sound with powerful vocals and musical grooves
