Shrink the Giant

Shrink the GiantThe six-member Indie Alt-Rock Pop band, Shrink the Giant, was born in 2010, when front-woman Stefania Barr was only fifteen years old. Before stepping on stage to perform as a band, Stefania (lead singer, keyboards, guitars, bells, etc.), and her band mates, Aaron Hurt (bass guitar), Sebastian Barr (violin, second front man), Marisa Wilde (bass, back up vocals), Oakley Hill (drums), and Jean-Christian Barr (keyboards), began writing and recording their first album. Despite their youth, and lack of experience performing before a live audience, their self-titled 2012 debut album and live emergence was met with enormous success. The album garnered fans from around the world.

Shrink the Giant won alternative rock station X96’s Battle of the Bands, and played with groups like Imagine Dragons, Neon Trees, Grouplove, Awolnation, the Wombats, and the Used. In 2013, the band toured the California coast. In 2014, they won Best Alternative Band at the Utah Music Awards and kicked off the summer with another California tour.

According to their Facebook page, “Shrink the Giant ranges in tone from the unison, arty energies of Grouplove and Arcade Fire, to power-pop like Paramore, or Echosmith. . ..Shrink the Giant will leave a sensation in your mouth a little bit like Pop Rocks in your Red Bull.” proclaims, “Like Bowie and Beck, Shrink the Giant’s discography seems to suffer from a multiple personality disorder. They boast an infectious diversity of styles, with mood swings from playful to thoughtful, marked by outbursts of indie-pop mania and occasional, alternative, spacy seclusion. If Paramore adopted the child of Imagine Dragons and Grouplove, it would probably be named “Shrink the Giant.””

The success of the past few years has been wildly encouraging, and the band is hoping to continue forward in exponential success in the years to come. You can learn more about the band, Shrink the Giant, and its members by visiting their official website.
