Brandon Gibbs: Catchy guitar sounds and searing vocals…..

Brandon Gibbs – My Own Way

Brandon Gibbs says, «My Own Way is a song about the journey, the ride and yes, even the haters in your dream».

Brandon Gibbs is an explosive guitar player and singer/songwriter who has a powerful, soulful voice and a brilliant sense of melody that sets him apart from his contemporaries. With catchy guitar sounds and searing vocals, this rock song is essentially about the journey, the ride and yes, the haters in your dream. If you’re set for a goal and you wake up thinking about it, spend all your days working on it, go to bed dreaming of how to make it better the next day, you will often find some people in life change their perception of you. 

Either these people choose to make it positive and rally with you, or they decide to make hurtful judgements or insert a sticky blurb of shade. This is your story and what comes out of your heart, soul, and will to better yourself. It is what you leave behind in this short time on earth. Guard your peace fiercely. Grow with me or don’t… I’ll be just fine My Own Way.

My Own Way follows Gibbs’ latest singles Lost Boys, Leave and Rain Whiskey.

Brandon Gibbs is best known for being a cryptic, spiritual and radiant songwriter, as well as a national live performer. Brandon’s songwriting takes you on an incredible journey throughout each performance, often transcending genres of rock, blues, pop and country, while still remaining his signature sound in every play. The cocktail that is equal parts songwriting and performing compels his fans to continue to support his journey. His heavy measure of explosive guitar work, instilled in the 35-year-old artist since the age of 8, keeps his fan base nothing short of included! He’s also a public speaker and a major advocate for anti – bullying.

At the age of fourteen, Gibbs and his twin formed The Gibbs Brothers Band, performing together for the next 10 years while writing and recording. Their reputation for harmonies, instrumentation, and pure entertainment earned them more opportunities than most unsigned bands ever see. Some of their shows included The Doobie Brothers, Poison, Bret Michaels, REO Speedwagon, Foreigner, George Thorogood, the late Jeff Healey and many others.

When Gibbs and his twin parted ways musically in 2010, Brandon began traveling extensively as a solo artist. In 2012, he formed the band Cheap Thrill, which featured two members of multi-platinum band Cinderella. The band toured internationally and still performs today. Brandon, while on tour, would write and record during his downtime and his song This Town was picked up by the John Force Racing Team, which was eventually used for ESPN’s NHRA division for three consecutive seasons.

In 2014, Gibbs joined forces with Rikki Rockett (Poison), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), and Eric Brittingham (Cinderella) to form Devil City Angels. Their first single All My People, which was previously written and recorded by Brandon and his twin brother, was used in the State Farm segment on the 2014 Monday Night Football Countdown. Devil City Angels was quickly signed by Century Media Records and released their self-titled record in September of 2015. (In 2020, DCA surprised their fans and released a video called ‘Testify’ which Joel Kosche (Collective Soul) co-wrote, produced and performed with Brandon, Rikki and Topher Nolan. In 2015, Gibbs was asked by Bobby Dahl, Rikki Rockett, and CC DeVille, members of iconic band Poison, to perform hits from the Poison catalogue. They were called The Special Guests.

In 2017, Gibbs created an incredible guitar driven show called Planet Axe featuring Ryan Roxie (Alice Cooper) and Joel Kosche (Collective Soul). This show was extremely well received by fans. Gibbs and Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Cher, TSO), from 2016 onwards, perform together in an acoustic show called The Campfire Tour, an intimate vibe with a BIG sound that fans love!

In April of 2019, Brandon Gibbs signed his first deal as a solo artist with Golden Robot Records, releasing the single Rain Whiskey fall of 2019, Leave in 2020 and his third single Lost Boys with the label early 2021.


About Ulf Backstrøm (7231 Articles)
Mitt hovedfokus er musikk som er basert på progressiv tenking. Jeg er på ingen måte ensporet innen musikksmak, i likhet med intensjonen bak prog. Sjangerbegrepet er egentlig temmelig uinteressant annet enn til å gi en pekepinn om hva slags musikk det er snakk om i en anmeldelse. Jeg søker god musikk for å utfordre meg som lytter. God musikk til å trigge mine musikalske smaksløker, og til å sette i gang mine refleksjoner. Da er sjansen stor for at jeg utvikler meg og lærer, noe som bør være drivstoff for et hvert menneske. Fordi det å lære og utvikle seg er noe som tilfører livet en nødvendig porsjon "krydder". Slikt krydderet finner man blant annet i musikk. Ikke overraskende mener jeg at progressiv musikk har den fineste "smaken". På den annen side kan musikk med eller uten progressive elementer være godt nok til hverdags. Til fest derimot holder bare rendyrket prog! Må jo også få med at jeg rimelig kritisk, og jeg mener at det lages mye prog som er i beste fall uinteressant, og faktisk mye som er pinlig dårlig. Heldigvis oppveies dette av ekstremt dyktige aktører som for eksempel: Flower Kings, Mostly Autumn og White Willow, for å nevne noen tilfeldig valgte.
