Like Marc Cohn, Lyle Lovett and Bonnie Raitt, Big Hands Colvin’s musical style is difficult to define—a little bit blues, a little bit country, a little bit soul. Whether he’s songwriting, singing, playing sax or guitar—Big Hands is a big talent.
Formerly a frontman for the Central-Coast-of-California-based, Big Daddy’s Rhythm & Blues Band, Colvin has played with or opened for a number of well-known artists including: Tom Scott, Jesse Colin Young, Johhny Winter Geoff Muldaur and Nelson Braxton.
Big Hands Colvin has also toured extensively as a member of the Cardiff Reefers, Rock Steady Posse and Eric Ellsworth Band. He is a professional songwriter with an impressive collection of solid originals—and the voice to compete with anyone in the genre.
The New Big Hands Colvin Band includes Jesse Savage on guitar, Tyrone Hall on stand-up bass, and Randall Ireland on percussion, On their latest CD Rainy Days, The Big Hands Colvin Band takes on standards like " The Beat Goes On, " shares regrets on tracks like "I Didn't Know," and takes us on a trip back in time with the poignant "This Town." Influences range from country to jazz, but every song is unmistakably Big Hands. If you've caught one of the live shows then you've had a taste of Colvin's sense of humor--which is front and center in the break-up song "Selfish Bitch," and the ball-and-chain ballad "Thangs." The Big Hands Colvin Band has been busy with their live shows as well--opening up for acts like Johnny Winter, selling out their own shows, and being featured on National Public Radio's " West Coast Live."
