Young the Giant

Young the Giant's (formerly known as The Jakes) sound is as uniquely diverse and eclectic as its five members.

Young the Giant's (formerly known as The Jakes) sound is as uniquely diverse and eclectic as its five members. Sameer Gadhia, Payam Doostzadeh, Jacob Tilley,Francois Comtois and EricCannata hail from, surprisingly,Newport Beach, California. An assembly of international names andassorted backgrounds that combine to produce arefreshing brand of sun soaked Indie rock. With lushexperimentalcompositions complimented by subtle yet infectious pop hooks and unique, soothingvocals, it is a sound all theirown.

Predominantly comprised of teenagers, the five piece delivers mature arrangements far beyond their years. As high schoolstudents they conqueredthe local Orange County musicscene winning awards and praise, quickly developing momentum thatwas soon challenged by their new college lives. At5 different schools, divided by hundreds of miles of theCalifornia coast, theband persisted, continuing to play shows and write new music for their EPShake My Hand.

With the release of Shake My Hand came the new and unexpected challenge of keeping up with the demands of critical andpopular acclaim.With theirsingle Cough Syrup becoming alocal favorite on KROQ, and strong web chatter from sites likeabsolute punk who claimedthe EP was a “Slick set ofrock songs… that for all of its cocksure maturity and tight,catchyproduction, can easily be confused with a veteran stadium show”, the praise wasreaching much further than theshores of Newport Beach.
