Giant Sand was the primary outlet for the stylistic curveballs and sun-damaged songcraft of singer-songwriter Howe Gelb. In three decades he’s managed to mash elements of rock, country, blues, punk, garage, lo-fi, jazz, gospel, avant-garde noise and flamenco gypsy music.
Over the course of the last decade, Howe Gelb and Giant Sand have continued to evolve, skipping from genre to genre, revisiting old songs and continuing to build and evolve a unique body of work. 2018’s ‘Returns To The Valley Of Rain’ and 2019’s ‘Recounting The Ballads Of Thin Line Men’ saw the band re-record seminal albums, shining a new light on the songs and celebrating the band’s rich catalogue. Howe Gelb, residing in Tucson (Arizona), continues to look forward, innovate and reinterpret the great traditions of our musical history – where he goes next, we will simply have to wait and see.
