“Giants oozes a humble confidence, like the kind earned after a long solo journey. The intimate relationship he has with his music is audible, though it's hard to escape the thought that he's holding back on most of Giants' tracks. Tracks like "The Light" and "Giants" are dying to be played around a ruckus campfire, or to be yelled while driving on the Pacific Coast Highway.”
“As far as debuts go, Trevor Borden’s Giants aims high and hits its mark. The young Santa Barbaran follows in the footsteps of earnest folkies like Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers. The ballads are somber, contemplative, and move from hushed to swelling in just a few bars. Still, what sets Borden apart from his contemporaries is also what makes Giants work so well. Rather than flooding the four-song EP with overwrought harmonies and sing-alongs, Borden spends most of the record alone at the mike, and his booming and gravelly voice is perfectly suited for this type of music making.”
"This kid is the real deal!! I have been listening to his home recording for years now and they are amazing. He is in the studio now and I am very excited to hear his new music. Trevor is seriously talented. If he gets the right breaks he could be the John Prine or Bob Dylan of his generation. And Im not exaggerating"
