Little Country Giants
From the sleepy town of Oakman, Georgia, come the Little Country Giants, comprised of husband and wife songwriting duo, Cameron Federal and Russell Cook, along with Michael Bowman (guitar) and David Long (mandolin). After recently successfully funding a Kickstarter campaign for a new album, the band immediately got busy in the studio, and have completed the recordings of what they feel is their best work yet. The album will be their sixth, and is entitled, Dead Reckoning, and is expected to be self released in November 2015.
The Little Country Giants have been voted "Atlanta's Best Folk Act" by Creative Loafing Magazine, and were awarded with the "Emerging Artists of the Year" by the Rome Area Council for the Arts in Rome, Georgia.
Their music has been featured in a handful of award winning films, including the documentary about Georgia's organic farmers, GROW, which uses music by the Little Country Giants as the soundtrack. One half of the songwriting pair, Russell Cook, had the opportunity to work with T. Bone Burnett and perform in the Stephen King, John Mellancamp, T. Bone Burnett musical, the Ghost Brothers of Darkland County.
"Delivering pure, simple, and timeless rustic songs touching on country, bluegrass, and even rural blues, husband-and-wife duo Cameron Federal and Russell Cook produce artful work on par with the finest of the expansive genre. Masters of the lexicon of rural music, Little Country Giants create music rich with the sounds of Georgia's roots and the musical seeds of America grown. "
