    Gibson Brothers sign with Compass

    Posted By John On 3rd February 2009

    Compass Records has signed The Gibson Brothers, and plan to release the band’s next CD during Spring 2009.

    As with previous albums from Eric and Leigh Gibson, this next one will be heavy on their original songs. In addition to six Gibsons compositions, the CD will include new songs from Shawn Camp, Paul Kennerly, Chet O’Keefe, Joe Newberry, and Marshall Warwick - and a grassed up cover of Angel Dream, a Tom Petty song from the mid-1990s.

    This project was recorded with the Gibsons’ road band - Mike Barber on bass, Clayton Campbell on fiddle, and Joe Walsh on mandolin - with Leigh on guitar and Eric on banjo. Resonator guitarist Mike Witcher is also featured as a guest artist.

    Compass tells us that the guys came in to cut at the label’s Nashville studios, and got all the tracking done during a single six-day visit. Eric and Leigh produced, with the assistance of long-time bassist Mike Barber.

    Eric Gibson shared a few thoughts about the new album…
