[From Official Website] After fourteen years of making records and playing shows as an independent recording and performing artist, Geoffrey “The Giant” Stone is ready to make it big. The thirty-one year old piano man and singer/songwriter, whose influences include Barenaked Ladies, Ben Folds Five, Ron Sexsmith, Queen, The Beatles, and The Rolling Stones, is about to take the music industry by storm.With his fourth L.P. nearing completion, on the heels of finishing an Honours Bachelor of Music degree at Carleton University and a diploma from The Audio Recording Academy in Ottawa, Geoffrey is now setting his Giant sights on conquering the world.
The new record, Geoffrey The Giant’s Big Bang, is a monster of a masterpiece – packing over a dozen songs that are all shining examples of this young artist’s mastery of the craft of songwriting. The tunes make up an eclectic mix of musical styles, in the tradition of bands like Barenaked Ladies – who are known for a repertoire that’s full of both comedic and quippy material as well as contemplative songs that are sober and sincere.
The lead single from the album, Rock Paper Scissors Lizard Spock, is one of the many campy, satirical pieces on the record which showcase his comical wit and hilarious sense of humor. The video for the song is a side-splitting parody of the massive television sensation The Big Bang Theory, which has popularized the game, from which the song gets its title, throughout the series.
