ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Geoff Gibbons

Sepia-tinted panoramas and meticulous song craft: Across the breadth of the his music, singer-songwriter Geoff Gibbons breathes life into lyrics with intricate economy, metaphoric ease and an ear for conversational proximity

From Vancouver, BC, Canada, Geoff is a full time working songwriter, musician and a producer-engineer who has lived his life immersed in music. Captivated in his teen years by foundational bands and singer-songwriters like The Beatles, Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, he played in a steady succession of bands; then at 20, thanks to earnings from a local talent show, headed off for Australia's Gold Coast to perform in the evening and luxuriate seaside during the day. Teaming up with a visiting Canadian friend, he formed the duo Silverlode, returned to Vancouver, made his first two recordings for Raintown Records,
Silverlode gained traction on Canadian radio, performed on many national television shows. Geoff has also shared stages and performed on bills with the likes of Emmylou Harris, T-Bone Burnette, the McGarrigle Sisters, David Crosby, and Levon Helm and Rick Danko of The Band.

As a solo artist, Geoff advanced his song craft with a string of well regarded, ever more ambitious albums. As a songwriter for visual projects, he created songs for television shows including Higher Ground, Just Cause and Robson Arms plus animation: Mook and the adult comedy series The Mr. Dink Show - winner of the jury prize for Best Animation at the New York International Film Festival. He also composed the score and songs for Lions Gates Films Wolf Moon (aka Dark Moon Rising).

Geoff’s 2017 saw Geoff returning to the scene after a hiatus with the critically received album release “Buffalo Hotel”. A trip to the cradle of North American music was a signpost of the journey to the Buffalo Hotel. Geoff flew South to the cities of sound: Muscle Shoals, Nashville and Memphis. “When I got back home I wasn’t just inspired, I was altered,” Geoff remembers. “It was like traveling to a musical Mecca.” Echoes of this experience permeate the musical tapestry, most pointedly with the harmonies of The Sojourners, a soulful trio of male backing vocalists who impart an ecclesiastical aura of Southern gospel.

As verses turn the pages, Gibbons drops the listener directly into the dramas as he silhouettes vibrant characters in sheer authenticity. Backed by players from a tight community of first call studio musicians, Geoff’s soul deep vocals are imbued with experience and empathy.


“Gibbons’ extrasensory capacity for defining characters, and the remarkable empathy that he shares in his portrayals.” Music Connection Magazine –Los Angeles
