Fort Gorgeous

Fort Gorgeous

Fort Gorgeous leader Billy Libby’s heady, introspective songs rise and fall on waves of emotion, their lyrics always searching for hard answers, their pop sensibility never forgetting the need for a strong chorus. Though the songs often wind their way through delicate, hypnotic arpeggios, Libby's songs always emerge with welcoming, heartfelt hooks. And though his contemplative lyrics and winding musical passages conjure up comparisons to brooding art-folk acts like Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens, the sequent hooks precede another message: Everyone’s invited in Libby’s voyage to The Bottom of the Sea.

Considering Libby’s other projects, this approach comes as no surprise—all enjoy reputations as incubators for compelling, artistic indie rock and pop. There’s veteran musician, Ingrid Michaelson, for whom Libby currently plays guitar, the exceptionally dreamy Novelette, Libby’s collaboration with LA singer/songwriter Cara Salimando and Patrick Meese (of Tennis and Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats), and also the synthpop sheen of Shapes in Calgary (ft. members of Savoir Adore & Field Mouse). As Fort Gorgeous, he's shared bills with Tokyo Police Club, Jukebox the Ghost & Dark Rooms, and as Billy Libby (singer/songwriter), with Gregory Alan Isakov, My Morning Jacket, Surfer Blood, Lady Lamb the Beekeeper & more.

Since having Released their debut EP in May of 2018 Fort Gorgeous has been voted The Deli's emerging artist of the month and has been premiered in Nylon, Substream and Atwood Magazine's as well as Earbuddy, The Deli, PopMatters, Pop Dust and Mystic Sons. Fort Gorgeous was also featured on the August Indie Rock playlist for AlexrainbirdMusic.
