Joseph Giant is a Rock & Roll band from Seattle Wa. Formed in 2010 by Joe Syverson, the band quickly shared stages with some of the best bands in town and from around the country. Joseph Giant has played shows with War On Drugs, AA Bondy, Fruit Bats, The Moondoggies , Quiet Life, The Maldives, Jessica Hernandez and The Deltas & many more… Jangly backwoods indie rock with an introspective yet upbeat feeling straight out of Seattle, and layered with lots of warm tones and wandering electric guitars and slides.
Break It Together is the 2nd album from the Seattle band Joseph Giant. Recorded by Kevin Suggs (Cat Power, Eddie Vedder) in his South Seattle Studio the Imperial Room & Mixed by Chris Woodhouse (Ty Segall, Thee Oh Sees, Meatbodies, Wild Flag) at The Dock in Sacramento, Ca and Mastered by Ed Brooks at RFI in Seattle, Wa in July of 2015.
The album is a personal scrapbook of events that Joe Syverson experienced over the past 5 years. During the recording of the album Syverson and his family became homeless and had to find temporary place to live causing him to come up with the title Break It Together. Putting everything he had in the making of the album pushed the process into a surge of creativity and urgency. With scrappier songs, like debut single “On The Run” & flushed out acoustic songs like “Blink Of An Eye”. Break It Together will draw you in!
The second album from this Seattle band led by Joe Syverson is an impressive, hook-filled blend of swaggering garage-rock, soaring power-pop and reflective folk-rock. 9/4/2015 – Don Yates (KEXP)
Joseph Giant is indeed a big man and “On the Run” is a suitably big tune, all roaring guitars and overdriven vocals. You may not remember “Flirting with Disaster,” Molly Hatchet’s sole hit circa 1979, but Syverson does, and he channels that larger-than-life classic-rock swagger all over his new full-length Break It Together. – Jonathan Zwickel (City Arts Magazine)
