THE LITTLE GIANTESS
ACOUSTIC & ELECTRIC ROCK/BLUES/JAZZ DUO
"Extremely talented and always entertaining"
"Intricate storytelling inside masterful melodies"
"You'd be missing out if you didn't go see them!"
The Little Giantess is an original songwriting team of two with the combined talents of vocalist Tess Minnick and guitarist Rob Gunderson. The Little Giantess (The more stripped down duo version of the 4 piece band, The Giantess) performs with a Roots-Rock meets Jazz style. They mesh elements of Rock, Blues, Pop, Jazz and Rockabilly to create eclectic songs with dance-able grooves and retro vibes. Where The Giantess is theatrical and energetic, The Little Giantess is intimate and silky smooth with a dance worthy energy.
Tess and Rob effortlessly mix and match their individual influences. Tess grew up admiring artists across many genres like Queen, No Doubt, The Stray Cats, Blondie, Bonnie Rait, Tom Petty, Patsy Cline, Ella Fitzgerald and many more.
Rob was inspired by the likes of musicians such as Ed King, Mark Knopfler, Robben Ford, Johnny Winter, Tom Petty and Mike Campbell,
Warren Haynes and Stevie Ray Vaughn just to name a few.
With Tess's curious lyrics, scats and percussive alto vocals and Rob's Blues riffs and grooves, this original duo has been described as "Jazz Rock". They smoothly jump from upbeat swing rhythms to slow syncopated Blues numbers and then quickly back to acoustic Southern Rock and nostalgic country. The Little Giantess has been called "The Blues/Jazz version of The White Stripes" and "Patsy Cline meets Pat Benetar".
