Tennessee’s three-piece rock band The Giant & The Tailor are gearing up to release their new EP The Detour on Thursday, August 11, 2016 and today we’re exclusively streaming the song “Jersey”. The collection of tracks was a couple years in the making and with the song “Jersey” the are specifically trying to share with the listener a personal story, plus the story of a friend of theirs, in hopes that people will be reminded that they’re not alone.
Said the band of the new track: “‘Jersey’, for us, is more than just a song; it’s a mission statement of sorts. We create music because, at some point in our individual pasts, there was a band, artist, or song which helped us through a difficult time, allowed us to gain perspective on those situations and people around us, and gave us something tangible to rely on and return to over and over. We want to use music to share our stories and to hear other people’s stories in return. This is my friend Adam’s story, and I constantly remember him and through him the importance of loving those around you and caring for those you meet.”
