Eric Geibel has been writing country and southern rock music about the people he has met and events he has experienced throughout his life, and in particular for the past 15 years. His music reflects much of the attitude and emotions that have impacted his life. Eric is living his music experiences one song at a time, just like he lived his life, one place at a time.


Born in Montrose, Scotland, to Southern reared parents, he was literally raised around the world while his father pursued a career in the U.S. Navy Civil Engineer Corps and Navy Seabees. His mother taught school around the world as she followed his father from place to place.


Eric Geibel moved to a different place about every two years until after his college days. As a child, he lived in Scotland, where he resided in the 12th century Kinnard Castle by Brechin and then in a small bungalow on the North Sea in Montrose. He later lived abroad in Japan, Saudi Arabia, Belgium and Guam. In the United States he has lived in Charleston, SC, Monterey, CA, Gulfport, MS, Annandale, VA, Mobile and Birmingham, AL, Marietta and Woodstock, GA and for the past 10 years in and around Morgan City, LA. He now lives in Berwick, Louisiana, to be with his son Gage.


During his worldly travels and constant moves with his parents, he had a chance to visit over 39 countries around the world, including: Denmark, Sweden and Norway, in Scandinavia; England, Scotland, and Wales in Great Britain; France, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxemburg, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, Lichtenstein, Italy and Greece in Europe; Morocco, Egypt and Kenya in Africa; Saudi Arabia and Jordan in the Middle East; Mexico and Canada, in North America; and Guam, Tinian, Japan, Hong Kong, and Thailand in the Far East and Asia.


During his worldly travels, he learned to appreciate the customs of the local people and their rich history. His life’s experiences, especially along the Gulf Coast, would later lead to him expressing himself in the common language he heard around the world, music. To him, music transcends all languages, boundaries and barriers that anyone can basically understand. He is at ease in the foreign arena and can bridge the language gap through his gentle and often soft-spoken music. But, he remains a “good ole country boy”, and his heart lies in writing and singing country music that is so popular around the world.


Since he was born and raised on southern rock ‘n roll and country music – both of his parents were raised in the South – he combines the sounds of Nashville and Louisiana with contemporary southern rock melded with his worldly life’s experience making him a unique artist on the country scene. Some music influences in Geibel’s life include, Kenny Rogers, Garth Brooks, Stevie Ray Vaugn, Eric Clapton, Keith Urban, Tracy Byrd and Tim McGraw.


Eric Geibel plays rhythm guitar and piano which he plays mostly by ear. It is a trait he picked up from generations of musicians on both sides of his parent’s families. He wrote or co-wrote all of his songs on his MySpace.com site and plans on releasing a full album CD after the first of the year.

In preparation of his songs, he has had the opportunity to work with and was heavily influenced by several of his friends, including Hal Bruni, Wayne Mills, Brian Francais Baudoin, Darren Vicnair and Ronnie Sanders.


"I greatly appreciate all of the encouragement of my friends," Geibel said. "They have never allowed me to lose site of my dream."


After years of preparing, Geibel has finally been able to record his music with Digital Sac-a-lait Productions in Houma, Louisiana with Pershing Wells.


"I have always wanted to publish my music and the opportunity finally arose after meeting Pershing," Geibel said. “He has truly been a pleasure and privilege to work with in the production of my music.”


Geibel has been working offshore in the oilfields off of the Gulf of Mexico as an Remote Operated Vehicle (ROV) pilot. He is currently working on a set of music related to the offshore industry and the personal experiences of spending so much time being away from family and friends. "I owe a lot of credit to working offshore for helping me self produce this album," Geibel said.


Eric has paid his dues in the entertainment, music, writing and acting industries over the years. He played music gigs in Agana, Guam, Marble Hill, GA, and Morgan City, LA. Along the way he worked lights and video for a Boonie Loonies skit production at Nimitz Hill, Guam, performed as an entertainer at “Six Flags over Georgia,” near Atlanta, was an extra in the movie “Under Siege” about a Navy SEAL, filmed in Mobile, AL, in 1992, staring Steven Segal, Tommy Lee Jones and Gary Busey, and has recently played a SWAT team member extra in the new FOX thriller, “K-Ville”, starting in the Fall, currently being filmed in New Orleans, LA. To add to his music writing experience, he has been: a television technician intern for an Alabama TV station; editor of his school newspaper “The Drumbeat” at Faulkner State Community College in Mobile, AL; sports editor of “The Franklin Banner Tribune” newspaper in LA; sports editor, photographer, city editor and interim editor for “The Cherokee Tribune” newspaper in Canton, GA; and, was owner-editor of his own newspaper “The Lakeside Ledger” in Morgan City, LA. He was a member of the Pow Wow Leadership Society at Faulkner State Community College, recipient of a Memorial Scholarship in college, and listed in Who’s Who in American Junior Colleges in 1992.


Geibel currently enjoys spending time traveling, writing music, performing and experiencing the thrill of learning new things through the eyes of his son. This relationship can be seen in his song “Always Changing,” about the changes in his son’s life.


Special Note: “I would like to thank my sister Lisa for listening and supporting my dream of writing music before anyone else would listen. She would sit for hours and listen to me writing and composing music,” Geibel said. “Thank you, sis!”

Eric, glad to see you have several of the songs we co-wrote on your Internet Radio Station site: i.e., Navy Seabee, Trading Places and Trouble Knows I'm Here. What ever happened to The Lord is My Lighthouse? Looking forward to our newest collaboration Never Forgotten in the near future. Thanks also to Pershing Wells for being our arranger and music producer, lead guitarist and vocal harmony. All very nicely arranged. Thanks, Dad
