Mark Gibson is a singer/songwriter from Tulsa, OK. Over the years, he's been in solo and band projects that contained a wide array of sounds and influences. After the release of his first solo album, "Beautifully Deconstructed," (2012) which still contained influences of bands like U2 and Coldplay, he decided it was time to define his own sound. Gibson's love for music began with the guitar, so it seemed like the right place to start. He quickly realized that when he just played for himself at home, he naturally played bluesy and soul-tinged riffs. He decided to explore those sounds further, and what he discovered was a more rhythmic and soulful approach to playing and songwriting. When he played and sang in that manner, it felt like he was coming home.
In 2016, Gibson released his sophomore album, "Blue Eyed Soul," and it represented four years
of writing and playing the type of music that he loved. Throughout 2017, he recorded a few live shows at Soul City in Tulsa, and released a full-length live album, "Live from Soul City" on February 3rd, 2018. The album showcases a seven piece band of wonderful Tulsa and Oklahoma
City musicians. It's raw and emotive; everything you'd expect from a soul band. This isn't the type of soul
music that James Brown defined, it's the type that comes from growing up on the Oklahoma plains. Gibson
spent 2018 and 2019 touring, and writing for his up and coming 3rd studio album "Hymnals From the Plains" (2020). He recently moved back to Tulsa, OK after living in Cincinnati, OH for two years.
