This Boston-based outfit combines folky political consciousness with catchy hip-hop beats and a pop-inflected sense of humor.
Songwriter/guitarist Jim Infantino, winner of the National Academy of Songwriters' 1995 New Artist of the Year Award, is accompanied by upright bass and drums on his thought-provoking groove-pop originals. As Jim's Big Ego, Infantino and a host of supporting musicians released More Songs About Me and the live album Titanic, both from 1996, and 1998's Don't Get Smart. Noplace Like Nowhere was issued in fall 2000. Solo outings by Infantino include 1993's Strawman and The World of Particulars, which mine the same groove/poetry vein as his current project. ~ Heather Phares, Rovi
