FULL BIO

Emerging from the strong roots and reggae movement in Sydney’s Eastern suburbs, The Big Ilch is a project founded on the celebration of shared creativity and musical collaboration. Featuring soulful reggae vibes, easy grooves, world music beats, with a dash of hip hop and funk in the mix.

Singer/songwriter and ex Voice Australia contestant, Ben Goldstein founded his own career, working along side his mentors, Seal and Delta Goodrem. After his first solo European Tour in 2015, Ben moved to the Middle East to explore the sounds of this particular region. Upon his return to Australia in 2016, captivated by what he learnt, he felt compelled to make a unique sound by combining different styles of music from several different cultures.
Alongside local Sydney artist and producer, Minimal Miggy (aka David Goldberg), they searched for the best way to make the ‘Perfect Blend’, to find other artists from different cultural musical backgrounds.

Ben and David met Maitê Machiori on Sydney’s Bondi Beach and began jamming immediately. Maitê, Sydney born Brazilian was not only an unbelievable singer in both Portuguese and English, but she encompassed every aspect of the Brazilian culture that was exploding in Australia at the time. During this time, David was performing with an artist by the name of Dom Diaz from the Dominican Republic. The moment they got a taste of his inspiring performance at their next show, Dom was immediately welcomed into the crew with open arms and a lot of love. Dom agreed to bring is ‘Dominican spices’ to table.

Adding the final members, Ally Mcmahon from England and Papa Raimondo Fioravanti from Italy, and Add guest MC - Y1, now a regular part of the band, the mix is finally complete. Recording their first EP at Australia’s famous Grove Studios, THE BIG ILCH is born. The music personifies the ‘Australian Summer’ translated to a global sound.

Their debut EP ‘Homeground’ launched in February 2018 to a sell out crowd at Sydney’s 505. Their latest single ‘Groove Constellation’, premiered on Triple J, and launched at The Lansdowne in Sydney in September 2018 to rave reviews. 2019 brings new recordings, with a new album release planned in the second half of the year. Cooking up a storm at Woodford folk festival 2018/19 and Splendour on The Grass 2019 - currently in the process of releasing 6 Singles over 6 months - With Each Single dedicated to a certin world issue of our time.
