TVD Premiere:
Gibson Wilbanks,
Gibson Wilbanks

Georgia-based back porch folk duo Gibson Wilbanks are keen to bring back good old-fashioned music, conceived in country, simmered in soul, and sung from heart.

It’s fitting that the band is dropping their debut record on vinyl, as this is really the ideal format to digest their high fidelity 8-song debut. Both singers possess a rich vocal tone, which when combined, makes for a classic sounding blend that elevates the sum of its parts. The tracks are adorned with smooth production nuance, yet the embellishments are minimal, allowing the two singers enough room to explore their potent harmonies.

Standout tracks like the plaintive “Oh Sweet Baby” and the cinematic “Green Grass High Tides” make one ponder how “Bro-country” ever came to dominate the genre. “We feel that the Country Music lovers are starved for real bands with thoughtful lyrics,” the duo assert. “Like Zappa says, ‘Music is the only religion that delivers the goods.’ And when it doesn’t, it doesn’t last or stand the test of time.”

Gibson Wilbanks’ limited edition vinyl release is available to purchase via Bandcamp.
