This five-piece award nominated band from the West of England have been described as one of Roots music’s "super groups"
Their brand of Cajun-kissed folk rockery, perfectly eases you into a high quality selection of songs ranging from the not-a-dry-eye-in-the-house tear jerker, to the Doc-Martins-to-the-floor outlaw country floor shaker.
Having built up a deserved reputation over the last two years as one of the UK’s “must see” live acts, July 2016 heralded the arrival of The Jigantics sophomore release Seconds Out.
"Seconds Out certainly disproves the theory that the best Americana and Roots albums are produced by our North American buddies, that much is for sure. This is an album that should, if there is any justice or taste, take The Jigantics up to the next level, and national recognition. The quality on offer here is nothing short of breath-taking”
It’s predecessor, Daisy Roots (which featured on radio playlists in well over 36 countries), also garnered critical acclaim from all quarters, described as "very special” and “Americana of the highest quality”
Live, "The Jigantics are outstanding. There’s no auto pilot here, no going through the motions. The joy of making music translates easily to the audience who go home feeling they’ve been part of something very special. The whole effect is one of wondering what may come next and then being surprised when the unexpected happens. Never afraid to mix musical styles The Jigantics foot-tapping feel good and totally convincing tearjerkers makes for a remarkable and spellbinding evenings’ entertainment"
