Bio

The original members met in a local pub, Peter (aka Carlos) and Rudi were playing a game of pool. Carlos puts the Pixies on the juke box, Lisa loves the Pixies! Carlos and Rudi were playing air guitar and air drums along to the music, Lisa broke the ice and after some deep discussions discovered everyone wanted to play music. And so from there, Little Big Box found its roots. After a few personnel changes, the recording of a debut album, Crash & Burn, the band have moved forward and finally come together in what is the strongest line-up to date.

Little Big Box is fronted by Lisa M. Lyle, a unique singer and songwriter with a distinct and powerful vocal style. Her talent for creating outstanding rhythm guitar parts drives the music forwards.

Underpinning the rhythm, Peter Houghs melodic bass technique encompasses deep, solid grooves, energetic punk and soaring riffs that provides the adhesive which pulls together Little Big Boxs sound.

Lead guitarist Chris (McWhitt) Whittaker brings colour and texture to the whole musical image. His tasteful and flowing guitar style avoids cliché and adds a euphoric edge.

Completing the rhythm section on drums, Aaron Scilley provides the infectious timings that compel the audience to stand up and immerse themselves in the experience.

"Little Big Boxs debut is an alt.rock whitewater ride. A powerful organic sound belies their minimal three-piece line-up and pivots round principal songwriter Lisa-Marie Lyles distinctive vocal and heartfelt lyrics. A thrilling slap in the face with a velvet glove. Tough love."
