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.
