ABOUT BRANDON GIBBS
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 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.
