Here’s a little bit about me…: )
I was born and raised in Miami Beach, Florida. Growing up I spent a lot of time in England as well as traveling and touring with my father and family. I grew up in and around music my whole life.
My dad, Maurice Gibb, was a huge influence on me and my music. I’ve 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 I did with him were released under the name Luna Park in 2000. I got the privilege of working with my dad up until he passed away in 2003.
In 2004, my music partner, Lazaro Rodriguez and I decided to start M.E.G. Productions (M.E.G. for Maurice Ernest Gibb). Later that year, we released our 2nd album M.E.G. “The Samantha Gibb Project”.
By 2007, I decided to move to Nashville with my band. Upon our arrival, we began to work on a music documentary called “A Nashville State of Mind”. The film was inspired by me and my band, Samantha Gibb and The Cartel’s move to Nashville and the incredible musicians and talent we encountered there. The film got into over 15 film festivals and won best international music doc in 2008 at the LA/NY International film and music festival.
In 2010 my band and I crossed the pond for our first U.K. tour to promote our album Wrong Side. We also hit up the US East Coast for an acoustic tour later that year.
In February, 2012, I got a chance to sing at the Hard Rock Live in Ft. Lauderdale, FL with her Uncle, Barry Gibb, for his first solo concert in the US. With great success from the show, I continued to tour with him on the Mythology tour performing in Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland and North America until 2014. In the beginning of 2015, I sang with him once more for the Miami Beach Centennial show in Miami Beach, FL.
In 2016 I began to work on a tribute album for my father Maurice and my uncles (Robin Gibb, Barry Gibb, and Andy Gibb) Called The Gibb Collective with the title “Please Don’t Turn Out the Lights” bringing together some 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 Fathers Day.
In 2019, Lazaro 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 past few months I have been working with my cousin, Spencer Gibb. We wrote and recorded music together and we will be releasing our first EP under the name Ghost Twins with the title “Silver Linings” later this year.
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.
Featuring performances from artists such as Jeremy Lister, Courtney Jaye, Ricky Young of The Wold Feathers, Aaron Winters aka Space Capone, Grammy winners Katie Herzig, Danial Tasian and Ian Fitchuk. Other notable interviews include Doc and Scott McGhee, Leigh Nash (Sixpence None the Richer), Mike Grimmes and other music business veterans who share their views on both the art and the industry of Nashville's "Other" music scene.
