You most likely have already heard of Daughn Gibson. In the short time since the release of his debut album All Hell, the handsome balladeer hailing from Carlisle, PA is capturing serious attention by tastemakers and music fans interested in new takes on country and blues. Daughn's background is rooted in playing in punk and metal bands and truckdriving across America, but it seems recently, he's taken this hearty rough-and-tumble past and made it more gentile. Adding a dash of grace and debonaire known best to predecessors like Scott Walker and Lee Hazlewood - doubtless influences. You might also hear subtle nods to Robert Johnson or Skip James, but Daughn throws a curveball by adding dark electronic elements to boot. Daughn Gibson's charm and uniqueness comes from his ability to perhaps equally fit in alongside Toby Keith or Depeche Mode.

Daughn Gibson released his debut album All Hell featuring this already iconic blend of electronic country and blues on White Denim Records, owned by Matt Korvette of Pissed Jeans in March. He quickly followed up this release with a 7" for 'Lite Me Up' b/w 'The Mark Of A Man"' on Dull Knife Records. 'Lite Me Up' is a perfect summer time jam…full of heart, soul, and a little bit of whimsical swagger. Daughn Gibson will be playing select shows throughout the country this summer.
