The Trembling Giant

A folk-punk hybrid, The Trembling Giant combines gritty acoustic guitar with punky tenor vocals to create damn catchy tunes. As a solo singer/songwriter, The Trembling Giant (otherwise known as Justin Calkins) grabs inspiration from his Midwest alternative roots. His first two singles, “Robot” and “Man Who Knows,” bring elements of Deer Tick, The Decemberists and even Yellowcard to mind. Having generated a hefty catalog of original songs, fans will appreciate Calkins’ larger-than-life lyrics and folk-rock acoustic guitar.
