Vancouver Alt Country Singer Songwriter Captures Carefree Nostalgia on New Single
Vancouver Alt Country Singer Songwriter Geoff Gibbons has captured a care-free moment in time and space with his new Retro-soaked single “Feet Out the Window”, out March 30, 2023 on streaming platforms. Geoff has been quite prolific in recent years, both with his solo work and his other projects, indie folk duo KasēoGems and Southern Rock band New Yank Yorkies. “Feet Out the Window” continues his stylistic evolution of instantly classic-sounding Americana, Folk and Alt Country music filtered through the lens of an accepting, road-ready soul. Crank this one up if you’re ready to hit the gas and get on the road.
The instantly familiar-sounding song was written and produced n the style of classic American songwriters like Jimmy Webb (Wichita Lineman), Fred Neil (Everybody’s Talkin’), and Danny O’Keefe (Good Time Charlie’s Got the Blues). For Geoff Gibbons, “Feet Out the Window” is just one of a series of song releases themed around ‘dreaming about the freedom of the open road.’
“The song was born after a conversation with a friend who had recently gone through a tough marriage break up…wishing to remember his former partner in the best of their time together.”
From Vancouver, BC, Canada, Geoff is a full time working Alt Country Singer Songwriter, musician and a producer-engineer who has lived his life immersed in music. Captivated in his teen years by classic singer-songwriters like Cat Stevens, Joni Mitchell and Neil Young, he played in a steady succession of bands; then at 20, thanks to earnings from a local talent show, he headed off for Australia’s Gold Coast to perform for tourists in the evening and luxuriate seaside during the day. Teaming up with a visiting Canadian friend, he formed the duo Silverlode, returned to Vancouver and performed on bills with Emmylou Harris, the McGarrigle Sisters, David Crosby, and Levon Helm and Rick Danko of The Band.
