Stormgiant is an original hard rock band from New York City consisting of:

Sean Connors – Lead Vocals
Elias Stampolis – Guitar and vocals
Steve Hurwitz – Drums
Ray Ristau – Bass Guitar and vocals

Stormgiant has been around for over 6 years and has played some of the most iconic rock and roll venues in New York City including The Bitter End, Highline Ballroom, Webster Hall, Gramercy Theatre, Blackthorn 51, and Irving Plaza and has a loyal following that loves to interact with the band live. We have an intense and non-apologetic approach to rock and roll which starts with the groove oriented power guitar riffs of Elias and the poignant and meaningful lyrics of Sean propelled by the powerful drums and bass rhythm engine of Steve and Ray.

Stormgiant’s fans have described our music as having that certain feeling of the 70s and 80s which pays tribute to the band’s many influences while not sounding like any of those influences directly. Stormgiant’s music is about living life and the nature of the world around us but … at it’s core Stormgiant is about Rock and Roll …. rip the roof off Rock and Roll!

Stormgiant will soon be releasing it’s first album entitled “Cloudburst” and is working on a second record. The band writes prolifically and more records will definitely follow. Check out Stormgiant on www.facebook.com/Stormgiant
