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.

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.
