Minor Giant

In 2010 Rindert Lammers at the age of 16 starts to compose and record a number of symphonic/progressive rock songs. One year later he posts the first instrumental demo on Soundcloud, which is later completed with vocals by Christiaan Bruin (Sky Architect, Chris). Rindert posts an appeal to musicians to join him to record these tracks for an album. Drummer Roy Post is the first person to reply, he offers to be co-owner of the project. While Rindert focuses on composing, Roy deals with organisation and communication. Soon bass player Harry den Hartog (ex-PBII), guitar player/vocalist Jordi Repkes and keyboard player Jos Heijmans join the duo Lammers/Post. At the end of 2011 the -until that time nameless- project was named: Minor Giant. Minor Giant has recorded their debut album ‘On The Road’ in –among other places- The Pitt studio in Boskoop working with engineers Ruud Rijnbeek en Gerben Klazinga (Knight Area). The album consists of six tracks varying in length from three to fifteen minutes. ‘On The Road’ deals with the different roads people choose in life. The lyrics are about the hope and strength everybody needs in our travels through life. The final track ‘The Last Road’ concludes this spiritual voyage, and after revisiting some themes from the previous tracks, the album concludes with an optimistic end full of hope for the future. The album was released the 30th of June, 2014 on the British label Festival Music After Harry den Hartog finished recording, he left the band and was replaced by Rik van Dommelen.
