On The Bigness’s Time Traveler album, each song threads together with a common trait: the spotlight placed on Kristin Bigness’s impressive, diverse vocals in the forefront. The repertoire of the emotions she captures through her voice ranges from sweet sentiment to ferocious edge — but no matter which end of the spectrum she lands, her voice resonates with fierce confidence. Supported by her husband John Bueno’s masterful guitar work, Bigness never stops shining. 

The most uplifting track on the record “Beautiful Life,” opens the album with a blossoming positivity, a poignant reminder of life’s beauty for the ensuing tracks that explore brokenness (“Desert Eyes”), catharsis (“Blackwater”), and the world’s unfair cruelty (“One Day I Flew”). As the record progresses, darkness settles and expands as Kristin explores the range of her voice that shifts between the bluesy rock of “Lead Weights,” a more poppy, rapid bounce in “One Day I Flew,” and the high, explosive belt that concludes “Run! Run!” after mesmerizing escalation. And for every sensibility The Bigness channels, the voice cuts like knives.






The Bigness draws its inspiration from the greats, such as Patti Smith, Neil Young and many others, and has been compared to a modern-day Fleetwood Mac. Lead singer Kristin Bigness delivers a soaring yet sultry vocal on a bed of screaming guitars and pick-driven bass plucking, all woven around rock drums. From its modest beginnings as Kristin’s solo project, The Bigness has evolved into a leading-edge indie rock ensemble with an international sensibility and obvious undertones of the 60s and 70s. Consisting of Kristin’s husband, John Bueno, on lead guitar and long-time friends, Stephen Maurer and David Kovach on bass and drums respectively, The Bigness fires on all cylinders as a sleek, well-tooled, customized vehicle that drives and delivers Kristin’s delicious vocals.
