I Am Giant Profile

I Am Giant dominated New Zealand rock radio for 10 years and performed all over the world with a variety of different band lineups. The two founding members, Paul Matthews and Shelton Woolright, put in years of hard work and toured extensively to leave a musical legacy and fans around the globe.

Both Woolright and Matthews were already very experienced musicians prior to I Am Giant’s conception. Woolright was the drummer for the very successful nu-metal band Blindspott, where he received a taste of how big the international music scene was when they played in Indonesia. Matthews played bass for Tadpole and Stylus, and was also a respected producer who knew Woolright from working on Blindspott’s self-titled debut album, and from jamming together in party bands in Auckland.
