young the giant

Young the Giants formed in Irvine, California back in 2004. Sameer Gadhia (lead vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar), Payam Doostzadeh (bass guitar), and Fran├žois Comtois (drums). Formerly known as The Jakes. These guys have been learning their indie rock roots since high school and college. These artists are acoustic goodness!

Don’t let hurt curve it that way
But I said mama please take me home
Said I can’t stand bein’ alone
Cause the pain is shooting down my spine again
I said daddy’s feelin’ sick I think he’s gonna quit
Sweetness On the mouth of your caress
Twilight pass the stars of that open night

These guys have opened for Neon Trees, Marina and the Diamonds and Kings of Leons. The band has paid their dues at South by Southwest and Sasquatch music festival,  as well and even a gig on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

You may have heard their songs on MTV's The Real World: Brooklyn. These guys are spreading their music to great new heights with all sorts of media.

Nothing to do with the music, but I wish my hair and beard were more like the guy on the far left in that first photo!
