Discography

Greg Gibson, a San Diego, California native, has studied voice since high school, although it wasn’t until he waited out a forced hiatus — allowing him to recover from vocal cord surgery — that his career took on a voice of its own.

After several years of playing guitar in San Diego–based Waterline Drift, Gibson set out on a solo career that allowed him to explore the full range of his voice, his influences, and his inspiration.

Greg Gibson’s solo debut, Black Glass is a collection of songs that Greg says convey the joy, contentment, discovery, and sorrow of life, love, and loss. Recorded throughout 2009 with engineer Kevin Mankins, the album features Gibson on a number of instruments, exploring new avenues of orchestration, from ambient guitar loops and vocal harmonies to vintage keyboards and samplers. Black Glass also boasts a lineup of guest musicians who complement Gibson’s voice with layers of percussion, brass, keyboards, and guitar. Notable performers include Brian Dall on drumset, Jason Ginter on vibraphone, Miss Erika Davies on backing vocals, and Gibson’s brother Bryan on guitar.

Gibson performs regularly in San Diego at venues including the Casbah, the Ruby Room, the Soda Bar, and the Tin Can Alehouse. He has toured up and down the West Coast, both to promote his new album and previously with Waterline Drift, sharing the stage with American Analog Set, the Watson Twins, Luna, the Album Leaf, and others. Gibson has been featured in West Coast Performer Magazine, San Diego CityBeat, and the San Diego Reader and has been played on legitradio.com, 91X, and 94.9FM.

“I have to say I probably favor voice over anything else. I’m a singer at heart,” said Gibson in an interview with Legit Radio.
