After an international upbringing which involved growing up in Thailand, Kenya, Egypt, and Belgium, Mike Gibbons set down his roots in the town of Mill Valley (Marin County, Northern California) in 2003. Before long, Mike's solo acoustic performances caught the attention of Thom and Becky Steere, owners of the world renowned Sweetwater Saloon (historic home to Santana, Bonnie Raitt, the Grateful Dead), who began booking him regularly, opening for hot local and national acts including Stroke 9, Luce, and The Heather Combs Band. By 2004, Mike had founded a seven-piece band of his own and established an enthusiastic and loyal Bay Area following in the process. The increasing support for his music led Mike to team up with local producers Dave Tweedie and Steve Bradley of Chocolate O'Brian Productions (No Doubt, Green Day) to record his debut full length album, Jetlag Chronicles, in March of 2005. Remaining independent, Mike has since been alternating between performances in San Francisco (The Independent, Sweetwater) and Los Angeles (The Viper Room, The Mint, Room 5) as he promotes his release and engages new listeners.

This Kind of Life
One of the more simple, acoustic songs on Jetlag Chronicles, my 2005 release. Just two guitars, strings (cello &violin), no drums.

Folk/Acoustic Rock/Americana

Hey! I'm Mike....latest news is that as of July 1st, I will be leaving the smog and the congestion of Los Angeles and moving up the coast to Berkeley, California. I have some new material that I'm hoping to have recorded by years end, probably with more of an acoustic, broken down feel to it. Check out my other sites, music is available on itunes and off of my website at Cheers!
