My name is Steven James Gibson, I was born in Newcastle Upon Tyne, England and I am Twenty two
I began playing guitar at the age of six and by the age of fifteen had achieved a distinction in
Grade 7 Classical Guitar with Trinity Collage, London, England.
Around that time I began writing music and was accepted into Newcastle Upon Tyne College for
Music and Performing Arts I passed my first year with honors. During this time I formed my first
band The Travellers and began recording a few of my songs, but I had to abandon both my
studies and my band when I emigrated with my family three years ago.
I have always been passionate about my style of lead guitar playing, which has been highly
influenced by Mark Knopflor of Dire Straits, whom my father knew personally when they were
Since moving I have listened more to Country Music and have been swayed more to
a Country style of song writing, it is very popular and the songs have a lot of meaning and a
story behind them, as do mine, I want people to hear my story by recording songs,
promoting them on radio and live performances.
I have played a lot of live shows and venues including the main stage - Craven Country
Jamboree, Casino Regina Show Lounge, as well as many bars and festivals, which I have had
a lot of positive feed back from people who have seen my shows .
My music is my life, not a minute passes when I am not thinking of new ideas for songs, shows
and performances, I eat, sleep and breathe it.
