David Gibb is an acoustic folk artist from Derbyshire whose music has been described as "Modern English folk with a witty wordy charm and a bit of an uplifting infectious feel"(Organ Music Magazine). Growing up firmly attached to the Derby music scene, David honed his skills playing and touring in local bands and after self releasing his debut EP in November 2007, he set about piecing together a group of close friends to support him on the road and in the studio. With band firmly in place he travelled to Wales to record his debut album during the summer of 2008. The first single to be taken from the album; 'The English Retreat' was released January 12th 2009 through independent label Fuse Records and sold out 100 limited edition copies in just two weeks. The album was released June 8th on all major download sites and record shops, and was followed by a 20 date tour of the UK. 2009 proved to be an exciting year for David on the airwaves and on the road, receiving national airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC Radio 6, as well as playing a live collaborative session for BBC Radio 1's Huw Stephens with award winning producer Baby J, while on the road he has shared stages with the likes of Mark Chadwick of The Levellers, 3 Daft Monkeys, Bob Fox and Eddi Reader. In 2010 David set about writing and recording his second album. David wanted to capture the live and energetic atmosphere of his live shows so his now firmly established band the Pony Club joined him in the studio. The resulting 13 songs have a contemporary edge, but also reflect an increasing interest in traditional song-writing and arrangements. The band features the talents of Elly Lucas on fiddle, Julian Butt on accordion, Ben Dew and percussion and Sam Jordan on bass. He was recently selected as a finalist for the BBC Radio 2 Young Folk Awards 2011 along side his fiddle Elly Lucas, playing as 'David Gibb and Elly Lucas'. Aside from his music David was also awarded the title of 'Highly Commended Young Story Teller' at the Young Story Teller of the Year 2011. The new album was released in July 2011, and the band's live performances received rave reviews and a reputation for a raucous and lively show, the future has never looks brighter for David Gibb.
