Big Mountain first hit the charts in 1992 with the song “Touch My Light”, a song from their debut album Wake Up. Following “Touch My Light”, Big Mountain released “Baby, I Love Your Way”, written by Peter Frampton, which has become one of the most well known love songs and mega commercial hits of all times. It has stayed on the top of the worldwide recurrent radio playlists for over 25 years.

The band appeared at both the 1994 and 1995 Reggae Sunsplash festivals in Jamaica. In 1998 Jamaican drummer/producer Paul "Groove Galore" Kastick replaced Carlton "Santa" Davis as full-time drummer and primary producer in the group. Kastick spearheaded the production on the next six Big Mountain albums, spanning from 1998 and 2007. After 10 consecutive years of touring, Big Mountain decided to take a break in 2005. In May 2016 the band released their first album in 14 years, Perfect Summer. In 2022 a new album has just been completed titled FreedomFreedom was recorded in Kingston, Jamaica at The Anchor Studios with Big Mountain and family members featuring Sly & Robbie and Chinna Smith amongst others.
