Floating down from the upper Gatineau, the haunting ethereal sounds of Outside I'm a Giant carry homage to the balladry of Leonard Cohen and Gordon Lightfoot, steering towards scintillating instrumental arrangements.
Based in Hull, Quebec, the Ambient Folk trio Outside I'm a Giant was founded in early 2016 by Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist, Jérémi Pierre Caron. Jérémi called upon members of previous projects, combining the talents of two multi-instrumentalist, Samuelle Desjardins and long-time collaborator Pascal Desgagné to make Outside I'm a Giant one of the more promising bands to come out of the Gatineau hills.
Although being a relatively new project, the band has quickly attracted a following on both sides of the Ottawa River through captivating performances in music venues such as The Black Sheep Inn and Ottawa CityFolk Festival 2016 as well as live radio performances on the CKCU’s Canadian Spaces, The Brew on CKCU and Indie City Madness.
La Fabrique Culturelle, Télé-Québec, featured Outside I’m a Giant in a video interview in their new discoveries cultural series.
While preparing their debut album, Outside I'm a Giant took their music on the road this past year. The trio performed in Toronto at the Horseshoe Tavern, in Orillia as part of the Mariposa Folk Festival auditions and toured the East Coast in the summer of 2017. This first tour which brought them from Montreal to Halifax, allowed Outside I'm a Giant to be noticed by broadcasters from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The trio performed at the Tay Creek Folk Festival in New Brunswick where immediate plans were made to return in 2018.
Their debut album, Point Comfort, was released Oct. 7, 2017 to an appreciative, sold-out audience at the Blacksheep Inn in Wakefield, Quebec. East coast and Ontario tours are planned in support of this album in 2018.
