A Great Big World is Ian Axel and Chad Vaccarino. The two met while studying at NYU and teamed up to write a song together. They went on a national tour and opened shows for Ingrid Michaelson, (love her!) Matthew Morrison of Glee and Five For Fighting. In 2012 the guys re-branded themselves and officially became A Great Big World.
Ian & Chad used the website Kickstarter to gather funds for the release of their six song EP. Their first single released as a duo was This is the New Year and was popular off the bat! The song was used for commercials on MTV, was featured on One Tree Hill and performed by the cast of Glee during an episode of the show! Their latest single, "Say Something" is getting just as much buzz. Especially since Christina Aguilera took interest in the track and wanted to put backing vocals on it! Christina's voice on the song heightens the emotion and it really is a beautiful collaboration!
**A Great Big World just released their debut album, Is There Anybody Out There on iTunes! Find out how they came up with their band name in the video below.
