A history of the band
In its early years, Big Big Train was predominantly a studio project led by founders Spawton and Andy Poole. The group signed to recording label Giant Electric Pea between 1993 and 1998 and released their first demo album, "From the River to the Sea", in 1992. During these years the band performed some live concerts to large crowds, but it wasn’t until they released their sixth album, "The Underfall Yard", that they started becoming more established. This album was well received across the prog rock community and helped them to perform their first live concert in 17 years, which was at Kings Place in London. Big Big Train received the "Breakthrough Award" at the Progressive Music Awards in London in 2013 and have since been nominated across other categories. The band released two studio albums in 2017, "Grimspound" and "The Second Brightest Star". They then went through some changes in 2018, with the departure of Andy Poole and welcoming of new guitarist and keyboardist Robin Armstrong.
