Biography

1 Giant Leap is a concept band and media project consisting of the two principal artists, Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman.

Based in the UK, the two musicians set out to create a multimedia project that would encompass a CD, DVD and cinematic presentation that would offer a complete artistic statement. The project offers music, digital video footage shot over the course of six months by Catto and Bridgeman, images, rhythms and spoken word content.

The first project features contributions from Dennis Hopper, Kurt Vonnegut, Michael Stipe, Robbie Williams, Tim Robbins, Brian Eno, Baaba Maal, Speech, Asha Bhosle, Neneh Cherry, Anita Roddick, Michael Franti and other artists and authors.

The band’s theme for the project is “Unity Through Diversity”.

1 Giant Leap’s “My Culture” video, featuring Robbie Williams and Maxi Jazz from Faithless has received extensive airplay.

After nearly four years the new 1 Giant Leap project, currently titled ‘What About Me’ has been handed over by Duncan Bridgeman and Jamie Catto. Twelve films and twleve tracks about “…all the different ways we’re mad…desperate, obsessed, neurotic, fixated…the insane ways we make ourselves unhappy…”

When Jamie Catto and Duncan Bridgeman joined forces to create the project 1 Giant Leap, they embarked upon a global journey that included Senegal, Ghana, South Africa, Uganda, India, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, America and Europe

    Just a question, this band are they British or Australian now? Because I got confused. An Australian music forum points them out as Australians but there own website does not mention anything to their roots. Anyone got a clue?
