“Hi, My names Steven Murray and I’m a Junior at Saint Michaels College and I wanted to join the Big Heavy World crew because I saw it as an opportunity to take part in maintaining the underground music scene here in Vermont and to do something passionate in my field of Media Studies as well. I play in a punk band from Plattsburgh, NY, Call Shotgun and through playing shows here in Vermont I’ve witnessed first hand the vitality of the music community in this state. I firmly believe that we need as much DIY and independent music as possible right now and through Big Heavy World I want to contribute to maintaining it as a channel for artistic expression.”
