Big Shoes is a Nashville Tennessee based "progressive" blues band who  incorporates traditional blues influences like B.B King and Ray Charles  along with tastes of The Allman Brothers' Band, Bonnie Raitt and the  Neville Brothers into their originals/cover song format. Big Shoes was  originally formed as a "tribute project" to recreate the early music of  the 1970's band Little Feat. As the band's following grew it became  clear that it was important to carve out a unique identity. That was a  fun and impressive journey that has culminated in release of their first  album, "Shoes Blues" and most recently the critically acclaimed "Step  On It!" album, scheduled for release February 23rd, 2018. 

Big Shoes members have played and recorded with Bonnie Raitt, Van  Morrison, Delbert McClinton, Taj Mahal, Etta James, Bobby Blue Bland  and many other blues oriented pop artists. Keyboardist, Mark T. Jordan,  was a band member on the Van Morrison classis album "Tupelo Honey",  Bonnie Raitt's "Road Tested" live CD and scores of other albums that can  only be classified as "music history.' Guitarist Will McFarlane has  contributed to albums by Levon Helm, Joss Stone, Bonnie Raitt and Bobby  "Blue" Bland. Will resides in Muscle Shoals, AL and is in constant  demand with the Muscle Shoals rhythm section, aka, "The Swampers." Big  Shoes lead singer, Rick Huckaby is an "in demand" session singer on  Nashville's Music Row after being on the Warner Brothers, Nashville  artist roster for 4 years. The credentials go on and on for the members  of Big Shoes. The combination of talents is impeccable.
