The Big Infinite
A band who’s songwriting and touring efforts serve a singular purpose – “to cast light upon the noise in our own heads and connect with others struggling with mental health”. This became clear to the band following the tragic suicide of Jordan Lally’s father in 2014. At the time the band was performing and touring as Fiction 20 Down. Ed Lally was not only Jordan’s beloved father, but also a dear friend to the entire band and an ardent supporter of their musical endeavors. Following Ed’s passing, the band took a hiatus to focus inward and begin to heal. When they reconvened, they dedicated themselves and their newly impassioned music to raising awareness for mental illness and promoting mental health through meditation, via a partnership with the Ed Lally Foundation (for more information about the Foundation please see below). Jordan’s quest for peace had yielded a newly unfiltered artistic expression, with lyrics that were unabashedly honest and vocals steeped from raw passion. As DJ and Dre began jamming on the new material, their musicianship took on new life. Without intention, the guys began to experiment with broader dynamics and explore different instrumentation. Effortlessly and organically, an entirely new sound emerged. Continuing as Fiction 20 Down no longer felt appropriate. The decision was clear that a new band had evolved. Thus was the genesis of The Big Infinite.
“The Big Infinite is a band who has found our purpose. By casting light upon the noise in our own heads, we will connect with others who struggle. Our songs and shows will bridge that connection, while our partnership with the Ed Lally Foundation fosters it further.”
The Big Infinite is Dj Fritzges (bass), Dre Toney (drums) and Jordan Lally (vocals). For music & more information, please visit thebiginfinite.com.

About The Ed Lally Foundation
In 2011, Jordan Lally, DJ Fritzges and Dre Toney began playing music together as Fiction 20 Down. Their first 4 years together were a whirlwind of national tours, studio productions and music video shoots. Along the way they accumulated numerous awards, and even charted on iTunes. Fiction 20 Down was establishing a name for themselves and creating buzz within the music industry when suddenly, everything came to a halt.
Ed Lally Foundation Mission:
The Ed Lally Foundation was established in 2014 to raise awareness for mental illness and to promote meditation and other alternative mental health solutions.
“As a family, we walked hand in hand with my beloved father Ed Lally as he suffered through multiple bouts of clinical depression – the last of which ended in suicide. We know first hand the pain and destruction that this disease carries with it. We endeavor to provide a glimmer of hope to those afflicted with mental illness, and the families in the same shoes we were once in.” -Jordan Lally
