About Young the Giant
Irvine, Calif., natives Young the Giant write soaring, melodic rock songs that are bound for greatness.
Over the last year, Young the Giant have played 160 shows on three different continents, including a sold-out tour of North America to support their eponymous debut album.
Possessing a well-honed song craft that usually belongs to far more seasoned musicians, the band's members only range in age from 20 to 22. Comprised of Sameer Gadhia (vocals), Jacob Tilley (guitar), Eric Cannata (guitar/vocals), Payam Doostzadeh (bass) and Francois Comtois (drums/vocals), Young the Giant present a diverse set of musical ideas, one that's as varied as their ethnic backgrounds -- Indian, Persian, British and French-Canadian.
