Based in Lafayette, Louisiana, the quintet was formed by Taylor Guarisco (singer & guitarist) and Tiffany Lamson (singer, ukulele & percussionist), who met at the University of New Orleans. When Hurricane Katrina hit, it forced the two back to their home of Lafayette where they met Kirby Campbell (drums, programming & vocals), Nick Stephan (keyboards & flute) and Josh LeBlanc (bass guitar) and began to form the basis for GIVERS.
After sold-out US tours with Dirty Projectors, appearances on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and a triumphant run of July UK dates, GIVERS will return to the UK for a second run of UK shows and festivals.
