Feeling a bit camera shy


The Iron Giants began by accident. I was going to be a novelist/teacher and Nick was going to be a psychologist who played the guitar. When some recording equipment fell into our hands, we thought it as an interesting summer activity. Having only a handful of songs, we sat down and completed a recording of Kid Rain. Nick's mom cried when she heard it, and I suppose that's where we first seriously considered that we could be good at this.
As for our influences, I would think that my appreciation for good lyrics comes from Stephan Jenkins and Ben Gibbard, both of whom made me realize that the difference between a song you like and a song you love is the written word behind the performance. I would say my piano composition is an attempt at Ben Folds that falls short somewhere around Chris Martin.
Nick's preferences are similar, but his influences are way different. He takes a lot from Nickel Creek and John Mayer for his acoustic guitar; his piano style seems to be an adaptation of his classical training towards a more consistent, modern pop sound.
None of this, however, may be enough to explain us. A simple description is that we are a pop band for adults, and that we produce likeable and rememberable songs that come from our hearts, and that we will and would continue to do this regardless of personal benefit.
