In 2014, New York native Mike Gibney wanted to get away from his past, working for touring artists as a sound engineer and tour manager, to focus on writing and recording his own music. His debut EP “Who Gibbz a F#@$” showed that he was no longer content with being behind the scenes, but rather yearned for the spotlight. Following up with the “Chardonnay” EP, he aligned himself with other artists that began to see him more as a peer, than a hired hand. He toured extensively through the US and Europe with Gramatik, Cherub, Exmag, Ghost Beach and the Floozies before independently releasing his first full-length album, “Above Water,” in 2016. Gibbz finished off 2016 with another EP titled “Oh My God,” before tackling his first headlining tour in 2017.
