Bruce Gibson is a singer-songwriter in the contemporary folk style but with rock sensibility. His music is personal and relevant with a blend of lyric and rhythm that is both toe-tapping and thought provoking. Bruceís new album "Love & Lust & Hopes & Dreams & Fears" is now available at iTunes (singer songwriter > Bruce Gibson), www.cdbaby.com/cd/BruceGibson, and other online retailers.
"A definite knack for songwriting." "Meaningful, personal."
"Hooray! A songwriter whose songs I understand and enjoy."
"Truly heartfelt tunes.... Bruce Gibson has written and recorded a collection of truly heartfelt tunes. He sings with conviction as he pours his heart out."
"Soul searching and toe-tapping good.... Bruce Gibson has struck gold with his first foray into the music world. Bruceís personal and introspective lyrics will speak to anyone who has ever done any soul-searching (and isnít that all of us?). This is a poignant, reflective album thatís just plain good music too!"
My musical influences include:
Ryan Adams (specifically the Gold album)
Crowded House and all of Neil Finn's solo work
Billy Bragg (solo work and with Wilco)
The Beatles / John, Paul, George solo work
Band instrumentation includes: acoustic guitar, acoustic ukulele, electric guitar, electric bass, hand percussion, digideroo, tin whistle, and trumpet.
Members Of Band
Bruce performs live as a solo act, with a full band, and in unique duo. Bruce Gibson and the Gently Used Fellows showcase his original music and perform select covers. Great songwriting and driving percussion with an electric edge. Bruce Gibson and the Junkyard Poet (aka Tim Morris) have combined the niche of a recording artist and published poet for an intimate set of poetry reading, lyric as poetry, storytelling, and live singer- songwriter music performance. This engaging set is perfect as an accompaniment to book signings, art openings, poetry readings, or as a full stand-alone set for coffeehouses and more intimate venues.
