Biography

A piano trio inspired by power trios, Gigantic Ant is pioneering instrumental rock-fusion. At a young age, brothers Jared (keys) and Donovan (drums) started exploring their songwriting abilities. Composing material based on theory instead of technique, they literally had to teach themselves their own songs.

After bringing in Zach Colton to play bass, they began to solidify their vision for a new sound that would be just as fun to listen to as it was to perform. What resulted was a very deep and intense style of music that exploits every human emotion and continues to grow. Within the span of a five minute song, you'll go from Latin America to New Orleans to Detroit, from 1685 to 1969.

Frank Zappa fused humor and aggressive composition. The Bad Plus fused jazz and rock. Keith Emerson pushed the boundaries of synthesis and piano chops, and Rush made odd-meter cool...

...and Gigantic Ant took notes.
