Assembled in Irvine, CA, in 2004, indie rock band Young the Giant were initially called The Jakes when they formed, but adopted the Young the Giant moniker in late 2009.  They have featured the Kala Travel Tenor ukulele in their In The Open video series, and our build team made a Custom Tenor uke for lead singer Sameer Gadhia.  They have released three critically-acclaimed albums, seeing their first two singles reach the top five of the US Alternative Songs charts.  They recorded a session for MTV’s Unplugged in 2011.  Young the Giant continue to tour the world, converting new fans with their brand of infectious indie rock.
