Faith Gibson Faith Gibson

Faith Gibson began her career as a jazz vocalist at the 2003 Glasgow Jazz Festival. The shy Pittsburgh native grew up within a family of musicians, played piano and flute as a child, and sang in choirs as well as smaller vocal ensembles. In her search for a mode of expression, jazz ultimately seduced her. The joy of improvisation gave her the confidence to appear as soloist and leader on stage and to record her first CD, ‘You Don’t Know Me,’ in 2004.

Faith’s second, much awaited album of mostly original songs, ‘Big Moon,’ was released in 2009 and is still being played on jazz radio stations around the globe.

Faith Gibson performs regularly in Berlin, Bonn, and Brussels and is now at home in New York City.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
