ABOUT DELANEY GIBSON
Independent singer/songwriter Delaney Gibson’s unique style of confessional, theatrical-pop music is on full display with her new album Tall Like the Tree (2014). She wrote over 72 songs in her Bronx apartment, while living and defining her sound in New York City. When it came time to record, Delaney turned to her close friend and ingenious Producer, Joshua Bartholomew. After two months they left his Los Angeles studio with 11 brave and intimate tracks.
Raised in a "Storied Sea Town", more commonly known as Ventura, California, she studied classical voice from the age of nine. Her extensive training in music and vocal performance includes a Bachelor of Music with a concentration in classical vocal performance, from California State University, Northridge. As a vocalist she has backed musical legends such as Barbara Streisand, David Foster, and Barry Manilow. As well as opened a private party with Andrea Bocelli. But, her arsenal of weapons has grown from just her devastating voice. Delaney has become an inimitable piano, guitar and ukulele player.
Delaney has played more than 1,000 engagements across the United States and Europe and recently completed a UK tour, as a backup singer with the popular band Wheatus. She has starred as a singer and dancer on the Fox TV Show, “Boston Public” and on the MTV Show, “My Own”.

Where she was able to work alongside Scooter Braun, Pete Wentz, Karmin, and Nikka Costa, among others.
Despite all the professional work her vocal ability has provided, her real passion has always been her own songwriting. She has released two full length albums of her original music, The Worst Kind of Way and Hurricanes and Forget Me Nots. Her third album, Tall Like the Tree, is slated for release in early 2014. With her own brand of Torch/Pop she blends the theatrical sensibilities of Rufus Wainwright, effortlessly with the unabashed prowess of Florence + the Machine. A woman with soul and substance, Delaney is ready to release her new music on the world.
