Daughn Gibson

The Haunted Sound Of Daughn Gibson

July 8, 2013 - A left-of-center approach like Lee Hazelwood, a deep baritone like Johnny Cash, electronic loops and some spooky-ass production (bagpipes!) all contribute to the sound of Pennsylvanian Daughn Gibson’s second album Me Moan. He spent time drumming with Pearls and Brass and released his first album All Hell in 2012.

Born Josh Martin, Gibson says he developed an appreciation of country music as a long haul trucker. Perhaps those long late night drives contributed to his esthetic as well. There are definitely ghosts in his machine. Intense and unlike anything you’ve heard in a while - Daughn Gibson.
