In 2010, at the age of 16, Rindert Lammers starts to compose and record a number of symphonic/progressive rock songs. One year later he posts the first instrumental demo on Soundcloud, which is later completed with vocals by Christiaan Bruin (Sky Architect, Chris). Rindert posts an appeal to musicians to join him to record these tracks for an album. Roy Post is the first person to reply, he offers to be co-owner of the project. While Rindert focuses on composing, Roy deals with organisation and communication. Soon bass player Harry den Hartog (ex-PBII), guitar player/vocalist Jordi Repkes and keyboard player Jos Heijmans join in and the band is formed and at the end of 2011 it is named Minor Giant.
The band wins the confidence of the organisation of the Progmotion Festival and is asked to do their very first gig as the opening act of the first edition of this festival in September 2012.
