Mary and the Giant / Press

“More often than not, musicians get a single, relatively small window of time in which to make themselves heard and set their career on an upward trajectory. Make a misstep or hesitate at all and you may not find yourself with another day to seize. That’s why what is happening with Columbia act Mary and the Giant is a bit unique. After suffering a sequence of setbacks that might have crippled another band, the group has emerged more resilient. The revamped band has presented that resolve, and evidence of subsequent musical evolution. - See more at: http://maryandthegiant.com/about/#sthash.X0ommRfY.dpuf”

“Mary and the Giant: Ever-expanding and tinkering with its sound, this five-piece somehow unites the rustic allure of Old Crow Medicine Show, crisp pop-country of Rascal Flatts and unabashed rock energy of Fall Out Boy, making that potentially unstable formula work without doing any element a disservice. The band’s sound is tailor-made to appeal to music listeners with eclectic but accessible tastes. With a new record set for the first half of 2012, Mary and the Giant seems set to further its current trajectory — which has included a full dance card around the Midwest and parts of the Southeast — and break big.”

““We Tend To Grow Older” is appropriately named. The album exhibits the growth of a band still fighting to realize the immense musical potential the four guys posses. It's a solid album that gives the band a firm stepping stone while leaving room for improvement.”
