—"Big Blue Wave"
is a band from Vancouver, Canada
consisting of Ashleigh Ball (vocals, flute), David Beckingham (vocals, guitar), and Dave
Vertesi (vocals, bass). Together they've created a sound that's both unique and extremely catchy
to become one of the more popular up & coming indie pop bands in Canada.
They released their first full length album Stop Looking Like Music
in 2007 which was followed by Its Easier to Be Somebody Else
in 2008, featuring several popular singles such as "Too Soon", "A Song About California", and "Fish". In 2011 they finally released a new EP Big Blue Wave
, followed by the full length IS
in 2012. The band has become well known in the Canadian music scene for their "do it yourself" work ethic.
Their lead female singer, Ashleigh Ball, also has a notable side job - she's a voice actress for The Ocean Group
and has voiced the likes of Hansel
, Oopsy Bear
, Mary Test
, Blythe Baxter
, and several Barbie and Bratz movies. Currently she's best known as the voices of Applejack & Rainbow Dash
in My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic
. In fact, the band has gotten a boost in popularity thanks to curious pony fans checking out what else Ashleigh does. Fortunately she seems quite amused
by it, and there's nothing wrong with new fans.
