The Gift play soulful, symphonic rock. They blend hard riffs with classical shades and aren’t afraid to sing pastoral songs from the heart. Like Muse with more muscle and The Mars Volta with tunes, The Gift's music demands to be heard. It wrestles with contemporary sounds and issues. It's awake, committed and alive. The band members share a love of rousing rock, complex time signatures, wild key changes and ambitious concepts. They also love the simple beauty of a strong melody, and sprinkle it liberally over all that they do. Their lyrics want your attention, too. You’ll hear about the stuff that counts…. the leaders who lie, the children who get lost, and the hearts that still beat briskly beneath the wounds of years.
