Biografie

Little Fish (volledige naam Little Fish inside the Superbowl) is een soloproject van de Eindhovense muzikant Martijn Vaassen. Hij speelde onder meer drums en bas in regionale bands als Stowistow, Fabrik Royale, Svetlana en Ons. Sinds de zomer van 2005 neemt hij onder de naam Little Fish eigen liedjes op in zijn thuisstudio, waarbij hij zo veel mogelijk instrumenten zelf inspeelt en de liedjes zelf produceert. In de loop van de tijd hebben een aantal interessante gastmuzikanten een bijdrage geleverd aan Little Fish, zoals Loek Cuypers (Fabrik Royale, Slumlord) Ralph “B mineur” van Leeuwen (Emotional Elvis, Svetlana), Jeroen Teunis (The Vindicators, The Dirty Denims, Svetlana), Mattijs Taanman (Svetlana) en The Naughty Babjor Cossack Choir.
Little Fish inside the Superbowl produceert op deze manier een mengelmoes van pop, rock, americana, space, funk en wat er op het moment interessant is of toevallig uitkomt.
