Down South City is the result of Big Yuyu's songwriting work in recent years with songs and ideas that were born on the road while the band was travelling from one gig to another! The songs were then polished and fine-tuned in the studio reflecting the creative evolution and maturity of the band. With the already energetic sound of Big Yuyu, other nuances have been added, ones that transport us from psychedelia to the more swamp blues sounds or from blues guitar riffs to the purest rock energy.
The album will be recorded at Sa Grava Studios (Mallorca) and mixed at Singing Serpent Studios (San Diego), all under the production of Isaiah Mitchell, leader of the legendary Californian band Earthless and current guitarist in The Black Crowes.
Musicians, now more than ever before, need your help and so we have embarked on this crowdfunding project to finance the recording of our new CD. There will be a very attractive set of rewards where we hope you can find the one most suitable to your tastes. Please consider becoming a patron of our project and be part of this exciting new album. All rewards will include the CD, the digital download and your name printed among the credits on the album.
who we are
Big Yuyu was formed in 2006 in Mallorca, a well known tourist destination with a powerful and vibrant music scene and where Blues has always played a relevant role and where live music is in the air. Since the beginning, the band played regularly, performing in all the main clubs and festivals of the country as well as touring Germany, Holland, Great Britain, Portugal and Switzerland. This is a band made up of musicians who love what they do - playing music with soul and passion!
The solid rhythm section is set by Esteve Huguet on drums and Juan Amaro on bass which in turn pushes the skills of Jordi Alvarez on vocals and guitar. Their sound fills the air with reminiscences of the old Blues legends but at the same time with a personal touch, hard rock, psychedelia, even that swamp blues feel which has led Big Yuyu to carve a niche in the Spanish and European Blues scene.
The band's fourth studio album Soulify Girl (Rock CD 2017), was an unforgettable journey, in search of roots, resulting in a unique sound - personal and powerful. This led to an exciting new show which in turn led Big Yuyu to represent Spain at the European Blues Challenge in 2019.
