Primary Instrument:

Big Tall Wish is the brainchild of Mike Barile (guitar) and Steve Armstrong (bass), created in January 2004 while both were students in the University of New Orleans Jazz Program. Having moved from different parts of the country (Barile from Boston, Armstrong from Kansas City) in search of more playing experience in the jazz idiom, Armstrong and Barile found themselves fully immersed in New Orleans' world-renowned music scene, studying music by day and playing it by night. This was a period of substantial growth for both musicians, yet they felt the need to express themselves in a greater creative capacity than the standard jazz band would allow. While Barile and Armstrong listened to jazz music regularly, they found themselves increasingly intrigued by the sounds of modern electronic musicians. They also wanted their music to”connect” to their own generation in a way that jazz music typically did not, to create a style and a concept that was both fun for non-musicians to listen to and satisfying for musicians to play. These somewhat vague ideas formed the basis for Big Tall Wish.
