Dave Gibson has a keening baritone with a wry sense of humor. Born in El Dorado, ARK and raised in Odessa, Dave grew up loving music and in particular songwriters. Buddy Holly and Roy Orbison were two Texans who most influenced his vocal stylings and later Elvis Presley’s dynamic and commanding performances gave Gibson something more to strive for. Off to Nashville in 1982 found Gibson in front of an array of producers including Tony Brown, Norro Wilson, Oak Ridge Boys, Duane Allen and eventually Doug Johnson. Dave landed a publishing deal with The Oak Ridge Boy’s company, Silverline Music, and began co-writing with a who’s who of hit makers. He has cuts by Sever Wariner, Joe Diffie, Confederate Railroad, Tanya Tucker, Alabama, Pam Tillis, and Montgomery Gentry. There are 6 number ones to his credit with Alabama’s “Juke Box in My Mind” staying at number one for four weeks.
Not only is Dave a great songwriter he is also a great performer. In 1990 he teamed up with rocker Blue Miller and the duo formed the Gibson-Miller Band. Their Duo scored multiple top ten hits as well as a coveted Academy of Music Award for New Vocal Group or Duo in 1994. These two even landed a song in the feature film, The Cowboy Way, starring Keifer Sutherland and Woody Harrelson, with their re-make of the hit “Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to Be Cowboys”. When the band broke up, Gibson began focusing again on his writing and developing and new talent.
Dave has his own label and publishing company, Savannah Music Group, which he founded in October, 2008 with Silicon Valley entrepreneur, Jeff Cohen.
