Acme Giants formed when guitarist, Matt Rhoden enlisted producers Bart Schouldel and Ron Haney--the Churchills, known best then for their appearance on Spin City and their theme song to the MTV show, Juvies--to finish and record several Alt-Rock songs he'd written while playing with various New York rock groups.
As Matt and Ron (a renowned songwriter who has written cuts with Alicia Keys and Interscope artist Mateo) continued to create new songs--now ranging from indie rock, to folk, to Adult Alternative--Ron recruited singer Jerzy Jung, an award-winning singer/songwriter, who has been featured on the TV show HitRecord, and will appear regularly on The Song.
Soon after recording the music for their first album, several songs were signed for licensing by Imaginary Friends Music Partners.
In 2015, Matt moved back to his home state of Tennessee, and Acme Giants has moved with him. Watch for upcoming shows, and email Matt and the Giants at

"Carey Ann is a knock out, radio friendly tune that combines some of the best elements of 80's and 90's alt pop. WUTK is excited to add this record, and I am sure that our listeners will be just as excited to hear it coming through their speakers!"
-Benny Smith, WUTK 90.3, Knoxville, TN
“It’s a really great song.” –Mikey Jayy, KGUP, Los Angeles
“This one really hits the sweet spot.” –Douglas Coleman, WROM, Detroit
