The evolution of the Big Mountain band started in 1986. In 1988, future Big Mountain frontman Joaquin “Quino” McWhinney joined as the lead singer of the band Shiloh.

Big Mountain first reached the charts with the song “Touch My Light” in the late spring of 1993. This is a song taken from their debut album Wake Up. This track received major airplay.

“Baby, I Love Your Way” was included on the soundtrack for the film, Reality Bites, and peaked at number six in the Billboard Hot 100 and number two in the UK Singles Chart.

The follow-up, “Sweet Sensual Love” reached number fifty-one in the UK, and the album Unity (with the line-up now featuring Jamaican guitarist Tony Chin and drummer Carlton “Santa” Davis) went on to sell over a million copies worldwide.
