Big street m.p. released their first record "acoustic kindergarten" in february 2007 and have thus far received a lot of excellent feedback for the songs, Stay and Mercy remix (radio edit) from several radio stations in the U.K, Australia, California, The Netherlands and Japan just to mention a few. The style is a mix of acoustic pop, smooth jazz, westcoast music and soul. If you like those styles you will hear their influences. But their debut cd also shows that they have developed their own uniquely recognisable style with blending musicianship.
Here are some of the reviews from the radio:
"Very good", Rebecca Kelly, BBC Radio Manchester.
"Good harmonies and lyrics", Bill Rowe, Citysound & Radio Poplar; UK
"Catchy beat, would like to hear more", Dennis Payne, SON FM 88, Australia
"Great voice, good song and lyrics" Darren Mangold, Community and BBC local radio
