Mike Gibney is a New York-born and-based singer/songwriter and producer , who spent the earliest part of his musical career as a sound engineer and tour manager for a number of internationally touring acts before decided that he wanted to get out from behind the scenes and start a solo career under the moniker of Gibbz back in 2014. And with the release of his debut EP Chardonnay, Gibney quickly expanded his profile through extensive touring throughout the US and Europe with a number of acclaimed artists including Gramatik, Cherub, Exmag, Ghost Beach and The Floozies before releasing his full-length effort Above Water earlier this year.
Gibney closes out a big 2016 with the release of his Oh My God EP and the EP’s latest single EP title track “Oh My God” pairs Gibney’s effortlessly soulful crooning with a minimalist and equally soulful production featuring thumping, boom-bap drums, twinkling keys, warm blasts of horns and an infectious hook, in carefully crafted yet swaggering song that nods at 90s hip-hop soul and contemporary radio friendly pop — while being incredibly seductive.
Gibney is set to follow-up a big 2016 with his first headlining national tour — and it includes a residency at The Knitting Factory throughout January. Check out the tour dates below.
