    Mark Gibson

    Blue-Eyed Soul

    Mark Gibson is a singer/songwriter from Tulsa, OK, who recently transplanted to Cincinnati, Ohio. 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. His 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, he naturally played bluesy and soulful riffs. He decided to explore those sounds further, and what he found 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. 

    He fell in love with the possibilities, and hasn't looked back since. Gibson released his sophomore album in 2016, "Blue Eyed Soul," and it represents four years of writing and playing the type of music that he loves. Throughout 2017, he recorded a few live shows at Soul City in Tulsa, and will be releasing a full-length live album in late 2017 or early 2018. The album showcases a seven piece band of wonderful Tulsa and Oklahoma City musicians that he's proud to call friends. 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. Now he's taking that sound to Cincinnati, and is excited to be a part of its rich and diverse music community. Touring the country is also on the horizon, but no matter where he travels, that Okie Soul will always be in the passenger seat.
