By taking universally known truths and feelings and distilling them into impeccable bluegrass, country, and Americana songs Eric and Leigh Gibson connect with each and every audience member, longtime listener, and casual passerby.
More About The Gibson Brothers
There’s a reason why Ricky Skaggs pulled Eric and Leigh Gibson off the stage at the Ryman two decades ago and offered to produce a “country” record.
The same thing that led David Ferguson and Grammy Award-winning producer and Black Keys frontman Dan Auerbach to co-write and produce their 14th album Mockingbird (2018) and release it on his own label Easy Eye Sound alongside cultural icons such as Hank Williams Jr. and Dr. John: The Gibson Brothers are the real deal. They can pick. They can sing. And they can write a damn good country song.
Country Music Hall of Famer Tom T. Hall was always an early supporter, encouraging their writing, and predicting success. They’ve won about every bluegrass award you can name and released albums on almost every premier Americana label you can think of including Sugar Hill and Rounder. If that’s not enough, their songs have been recorded by bluegrass legends no less than Del McCoury.
It’s a resume almost anybody in country music would be proud to have. But despite all of this, the Gibson Brothers are not yet household names.
Their latest album, Darkest Hour, produced by dobro master Jerry Douglas might just change that.
