The Giving Style is a mash-up of folk, pop, psychedelia, funk, and hip-hop. Tell your friends it's 'chunky folk' to save the headache. Justin Sicile writes all the songs and does all the illustrations for the band. Daniel Bursuc, the beat boxer in the outfit, is 'godsend' as Sicile puts it, rounding out its sound. Sicile has spent the past 9 years gathering musicians who he's met in the streets, on the canals, and in gritty venues in London, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles. The Giving Style will continue to embellish its 'chunky' sound with melodic colours.
