Samantha Gibb June 2021 Samantha Gibb, Sam for short, was born and raised in Miami Beach, Florida. Sam spent most of her youth, especially summers, in England. Traveling with her family accounted for most of her pre-adult life. She was surrounded by music from the day she was born.
Maurice Gibb, Sam’s father, vastly influenced her life and her music. Sam always said, “Growing up watching my father and my uncles really set the bar for what kind of musician and songwriter I wanted to be”. The first recordings Sam did with her father were released under the name Luna Park in 2000. She feels honored and thankful for being able to work with her father up until he passed away in 2003.
In 2004, Sam partnered with Lazaro Rodriguez, creating M.E.G. Productions (M.E.G. are her father’s initials, Maurice Ernest Gibb). Later that year, M.E.G. Productions released their 2nd album titled, “The Samantha Gibb Project”. In 2007, along with her band, and M.E.G Productions, Sam relocated to Nashville. Upon arriving, Sam began to work on a music documentary called “A Nashville State of Mind”. The film was inspired by the musicians she met and the evolving music scene she encountered while living in East Nashville. “A Nashville State of Mind” was accepted into over 15 film festivals and won the best international music doc in 2008 at the LA/NY International film and music festival.
In 2010, her band, Samantha Gibb and The Cartel, crossed the pond for their first U.K. tour to promote the album “Wrong Side”. Later that year, they followed up with an acoustic tour in the East Coast.
In February, 2012, Sam performed at the Hard Rock Live in Ft. Lauderdale with my Uncle, Barry Gibb. This was Barry’s first solo concert in the US. With great success from the show, she continued to tour with her uncle on the “Mythology Tour” where she performed in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland and North America until 2014. In the beginning of 2015, Sam sang with her uncle at the Miami Beach Centennial show in Miami Beach, FL.
In 2016, Sam began to work on a tribute album for her father and he uncles (Robin Gibb, Barry Gibb, and Andy Gibb), titled “The Gibb Collective”. The song titled “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights” brought together her family, including the eldest children of Barry, Maurice, Robin, and Andy. The album included covers of their music with a different style and new flavor. The album was released in 2017 for Father's Day. Since then, Sam has continued to release new music as well as some covers of her father’s songs. Sam’s recent collaboration is with award winning country singer-songwriter Kyle Jacobs. Together they wrote her single "Spiraling" and worked together on her newest single "Christmas in a Small Town".
In 2019, the co-owner of M.E.G. Productions and my music partner, Lazaro Rodriguez and I decided to start M.E.G. Media and M.E.G. Records. We currently release music and videos independently as well as create media content for ourselves, other artists, and musicians.
The film was made by Samantha Gibb and filmmakers John-Martin Vogel and Eric LaRocca Mainade of The Depot in association with M.E.G. Productions. It takes an inside look at the city's pop, rock and indie music community.
