ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Aquino is a Cuba-Rican musician and performer born in the urbanlands of northern New Jersey. The thirteen tracks on Giants Will Fall were partly a result of the years of Rock, Latin, Folk, Electronic, and countless other styles of music that infiltrated his brain. Partly his growing up in a inner city. And partly the discovery of the land outside of its boundaries. It's both fiction and non-fiction. Giants Will Fall is Aquino's debut album.

Some acclaim for Giants Will Fall:

“Giants Will Fall sports a wide range of sounds, textures and a relentless creative streak that keeps it from being one of those “12 versions of the same song” collections.”

– Bob Cannon, The Montclair Times

“There is a connectivity running through the songs that is held together by excellent musicianship and Aquino’s emotional and honest delivery.”

– Ed Magdziak, You Don’t Know Jersey

“This is Aquino’s debut album…and it’s a keeper.”

– LMNOP aka dONW7, babysue.com

Deena

Great album!
This is a fine album, beautifully produced and arranged with heartfelt, introspective and hopeful songs that rock and groove. There's an exquisite sonic array of instruments playing a super cool mix-up/mash-up of influences. Lyrics that stand out: "my blood is freezing like a lovesick human," and, age, "... less to do with wrinkles and more to do with losing touch."
