Under The Influence Of Giants

Taking inspiration from big-name acts like the Beatles, the Who, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Wonder, the Bee Gees, and Prince (to spout just a few), the aptly named Under the Influence of Giants emerged from southern California in the early 2000s. The group was praised early on -- especially after the release of its debut single, "Mama's Room," in mid-2006 -- for its smooth combination of rock and pop with a funk-edged groove. Vocalist Aaron Bruno and guitarist Drew Stewart had been writing songs together since high school, but the two first came into public view as members of the Maverick Records rock outfit Home Town Hero. Something ultimately clicked further, however, when the friends hooked up with drummer/keyboardist Jamin Wilcox (son of Hall & Oates/Utopia's John "Willie" Wilcox), who had previously belonged to another California rock act, Audiovent (Atlantic Records). With Wilcox's talents on board, the hook-laden pop-soul of Under the Influence of Giants was born. Bassist David Amezcua later completed the group, and the guys recorded the Heaven Is Full EP. Distributing their music online and at shows, the bandmembers took full advantage of the social networking godsend MySpace to spread their name. Most of the EP would eventually find its way onto their debut full-length, both releases being produced by Blind Melon's Brad Smith and Christopher Thorn. Under the Influence of Giants played a brief seven-city tour in spring 2006 with Mute Math; their self-titled Island debut appeared that August. ~ Corey Apar, Rovi

LOL, I don't think he is talking about the album cover! :D
If you watch the video for Mama's Room he's wearing a long scarf. ;)

Still, your reaction made me laugh like crazy.

The first song I heard by them on Pandora was "Heaven is Full". After buying and then listening to their entire album, I loved everyone one of their songs. The lead singer can be kind of grating though. If there was any reason for these artists to become a poppy girl band, it would probably be because of the lead singer. I mean seriously... what is the scarf around his neck for?

I have their full length and was telling the girlfriend (who also loves them) that they need to produce another. Here's hoping they come through.

I just want to brag and say I saw these guys with Mute Math at the Intersection in GR, MI. I din't think they were serious at first, but then was happy to have been proved wrong. They rocked it out!
