• Vincent Varco (ASCAP)
Rooted in classical music, Vince has proven his skills as a well-rounded composer in the music field. He's best known around Chicago for his hard-hitting delivery with Rock and Reggae bands and earned a Chicago Musicians Award for "Best Keyboardist" by the Illinois Entertainer.
In 2000 he and composer partner Kathyjo Varco formed the music production house Big Sound Music and released a collection of compositions, ranging from quirky lullaby's through truly-funky street rhythms, all the way to earnest and quite moving orchestral themes. He initially scored several campaigns for political guru David Axelrod, and then broke into broadcast television with compositions for Speed Channel, Discovery and The History Channel. His knowledge of music, at its core, shows through in his sensibilities when writing for any genre and has a way of tapping in with precision.
• Kathyjo Varco (ASCAP)
Composer/songwriter Kathyjo combines her many musical influences, ranging from Pink Floyd to Billy Holiday, along with a life time of performance to create broad palettes of music for Big Sound Music.
Her compositions have been featured on the Discovery Channel and CMT to name a few, and her clever jingle writing has left quite a few of us unwittingly humming along. An innovative songwriter, Kathyjo's firm grasp of nearly every musical style gives any track that 'instant recognition' factor lacking in so many brands today.
