The Big House, Candie Payne and Paul Molloy, have been summed up as a latter day equivalent to Johnny Cash and June Carter, with their cleverly blended mix of soul, folk and west coast rock and roll, tied together by the duo’s evocative close harmony singing and shared lead vocals.

With a handful of carefully selected shows over the last few months including support slots the likes of John Grant, Erland and the Carnival, The Kooks, and CW Stoneking, the pair have been captivating audiences with songs that hint at influences from The Lovin' Spoonful to The Miracles via The Byrds, as well as their spellbinding cinematic offerings that highlight the bands ability to create a sound that is undeniably all their own.

The duo began perfecting their craft by spending several months learning Everly Brothers, Beatles and Simon and Garfunkel songs before taking on the task of writing much of their own material. “The first thing we had to do was make sure our voices were tightly blended so it would be second nature to for us to lock in vocally when it came to arranging the harmonies on our own songs.' explains Paul. 'We learnt a huge amount from putting in that time and hard work in early on.

A couple on and off stage Candie and Paul first began working together as their relationship began to blossom. “At first we were reluctant to put so much pressure on our relationship but in the end we would rather have the intensity and emotion that goes with the territory than be apart” says Candie. Their obvious chemistry and instinctive understanding of one another is one of the most intriguing elements of the duo’s on stage performance

 Being able to realise your creative vision and combine it with exemplary musicianship are increasingly rare quality's in music at the moment, yet The Big House make it look bewilderingly easy, and it is captivating to behold.

The limited edition two track CD features the woozy west coast rock and roller “Canyon Home in the Sun” and the foot stomping, horn driven “Caught Up” and is the first recording the duo have done with a full backing band and will be only be available to those buying the first 250 tickets for the show.
