Brandon Gibbs Plays it his own Way

A guitar player with a soulful voice, Brandon Gibbs‘ work tends to obscure genres, but in the past, he was part of Cheap Thrill (featuring members of the multi-platinum band Cinderella) for two years, and also Devil City Angels where he was joined by Rikki Rockett (Poison), Tracii Guns (L. A. Guns), and Eric Brittingham (Cinderella).

His latest single as a solo artist s titled ‘My Own Way‘ and available now.

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 judgement’s 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…That, is the avowed intent behind ‘My Own Way.

You can order ‘My Own Way’ here.

It was back in April 2019, Gibbs to Golden Robot Records, it was his first solo deal and he’s been releasing singles through them since.

“Lost Boys is a song for the people,” said Gibbs. “As an artist, it’s my job to put feelings into words and song. 2020 was like living in a nightmare for millions upon millions. From wildfires, a global pandemic, riots, a derecho, loss of so many lives, people not even having a chance to say final goodbyes properly, shut-downs, loss of employment, closed businesses, stages for the arts being closed down and the one thing that brings us together like music events being prohibited…

“We all collectively got hit so many times that one can’t help but feel empty and lost. I won’t ever forget it and we all have long-lasting scars from it. Sink into the lyrics as this isn’t about the good times rolling, this is about being so vulnerable you can’t help but scream it out loud! “I don’t want to be a lost boy again!” 

Performing since the age of 14, as The Gibbs Brothers Band, alongside his twin brother, for ten years they continue to write and record together. Their reputation for harmonies, instrumentation, and pure entertainment led to them appearing on shows headlined by the likes of The Doobie Brothers, Poison, REO Speedwagon and Foreigner.

The Gibbs Brothers Band wrote ‘All My People’ was featured in the State Farm segment on the 2014 Monday Night Football Countdown, while his song, ‘This Town‘, was picked up by the John Force Racing Team and eventually used for ESPN’s NHRA division for three consecutive seasons.

Alongside his current solo career, Gibbs has been part of the guitar-driven show called Planet Axe, and alongside Joel Hoekstra (Whitesnake, Cher, TSO) performs acoustically under The Campfire Tour banner.
