Modicum of Abundance
'The band's debut is suitably elastic: Cello, trumpet, and organ brighten a record that drifts from jazz noodling to multi-hued rock and roll. Paired with the band's adventurous songwriting, this is one of the year's most dynamic local releases.' Jason Bracelin, Cleveland Scene Magazine/Clevescene.com Music, 9/17/03 Up from the murky depths of Cleveland, Ohio comes MOON THE GIANT. A five piece with a new idea: 'Stretch Rock:' A fresh new genre that is the harmonious balance between well-written songs and inspired improvisation. Audience inclusion is mandatory at live performances, which tend to build up to an almost ritualistic release. An ongoing musical workshop dedicated to making the listener feel, see and hear what it's like to truly, 'Moon the Giant' MOON THE GIANT, a group for the people! Moon the Giant is made up of five dedicated musicians: Jacob Fader-lead guitar, vocals and composition. Jonathan Kloepfer-lead vocals, rhythm guitar. Corbett Hein-bass, vocals, cello. Jason Wisniewski-drum set, vocals. Dan Shramo- guitar, vocals. 'Cleveland's Moon The giant throws more than the usual amount of artiness into it's rock. The group's songs don't fall into an easy category, but they have the laid back feel of the Samples without the hippie touches.' Aaron Beck, The Columbus Dispatch Night Life, 5/2/02.
