BIG SEXY - "Swallow the Pain"

MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Adam Jones

From Michigan to Kiev: BIG SEXY’s Global Anthem 'Swallow the Pain' Takes Flight

As the first beat of "Swallow the Pain" unfurls, one is immediately transported to another world; where thunderous folk-indie drums resonate, akin to ancient tales whispered by the wind through timeless canyons. BIG SEXY's masterpiece is not merely a song—it's a tapestry of soulful narratives, woven with sonic threads of both past and present.


From the embracing arms of the piano, Gary Maccagnone's vocals bloom - reminiscent of the revered voices of classic folk legends, yet uniquely his own. The delicate dance of the Old-Western style piano, playful yet filled with nostalgia, intertwines with his voice, painting a vivid picture of bygone eras. And as the harmonica breezes in at the bridge, it adds layers of cool, azure shades, refining the song’s already rich tapestry.


BIG SEXY's "Swallow the Pain" is more than a song; it's a poignant chronicle - a story of a son, echoing the battles of his father, a boxer and war hero ensnared by the haunting specters of PTSD. Through its bluegrass-inspired cadence, it tenderly sketches tales of sorrow, resilience, and the silent tempests raging within the human soul. This is all done cleverly in the warm embrace of the folk-style production presented to the listener, which adds an almost surreal quality to the narrative.

The genius behind this auditory masterpiece, BIG SEXY, is the harmonious union of Gary Maccagnone and Alex Goroshko. From the heartlands of Michigan to the historic streets of Kiev, their diverse roots and eclectic influences breathe life into their compositions.
