In 2014, New York native, Mike Gibney, wanted to get away from his past of working for touring artists as a sound engineer and tour manager, to focus on writing and recording his own music. His debut EP “Who Gibbz a F#@$” showed that he was no longer content with being behind the scenes, but rather yearned for the spotlight. Following up with the “Chardonnay” EP, "Above Water" LP, "Oh My God" EP, and over 16 million Spotify streams, he's aligned himself with other artists that see him as a peer, rather than a hired hand. He's toured extensively alongside such acts as Saint MotelGramatikCherubR.LUM.R, and Ghostland Observatory, as well as written songs for CherubGramatikCherokeeJabberwocky, Exmag, ProbCause and the Floozies. His latest full length effort, “These Are Love Songs,” has shows that his pop music sensibilities and R&B touch aren’t going anywhere soon. Gibbz is supporting the LP release with a March/April US headlining tour titled, “These Are Shows.”
