The Great Unknowns are a Boston area band making music unlike what you might expect from that frigid city of champions (Pats, BoSox). A few weeks ago I wrote about Rose Polenzani and how she continued to pop up in my web trawling. Well here she is again this time acting as an A&R rep by playing The Great Unknowns for her record label, Amy Ray’s Daemon Records.
The label was impressed and signed them to a distribution deal within the week in late `04. The record is Presenting…The Great Unknowns and it has been growing ever since. Amy Ray and The Indigo Girls came to the bands aid again by signing them up as an opening act. Now that they’ve got the kick start any band would dream about let’s see if the Great Unknowns will have to change their name to the Incredible Knowns. Here’s three tracks from their debut.
