Based in Hull, Quebec, Outside I’m a Giant was founded in early 2016 by Canadian singer-songwriter and guitarist, Jérémi Pierre Caron. Jérémi called upon two talented multi-instrumentalists from previous projects, Samuelle Desjardins, (violin and mandolin), and long-time collaborator Pascal Desgagné (pedal steel, mandolin and harmonica) to form Outside I’m a Giant. Later in 2017 Gabriel Bouchard brought his easy laughter, clarinet, bass clarinet and harmonies to the group.
Captivating performances in local music venues such as The Black Sheep Inn, Irene’s Pub, Ottawa CityFolk Festival (2016) combined with tours of Ontario and eastern Canada are earning them a loyal and growing audience. They performed at the Tay Creek Folk Festival (2017) in New Brunswick where immediate plans were made to return in 2018. They are set to headline the Living Roots Festival in Fredericton in May.
Their debut album, Point Comfort, was released in October 2017 to a sold-out audience at their favourite venue, The Black Sheep Inn in Wakefield, Quebec. They are currently back in the studio recording their sophomore album, their first as a four-piece band. The second album from this relentlessly creative group will offer listeners more of the soothing sounds they have come to love and some delightful new discoveries. Outside I’m a Giant are touring the East coast and Ontario in 2018.
Outside I’m a Giant will perform at the Almonte Old Town Hall on Thursday September 13th with William Prince.
