World Cafe Next: Daughn Gibson
Originally published on Fri October 3, 2014 2:08 pm
Pennsylvania singer-songwriter Daughn Gibson has a deep baritone voice like Johnny Cash and a country style not unlike Lee Hazlewood. Toss in a few electronic loops and bagpipes, and Gibson's second album, Me Moan, is a spooky production.
The former drummer of the metal band Pearls & Brass released his first solo album, All Hell, in 2012. Gibson learned to love the storytelling of country music while working as a long-haul trucker, and those late-night drives seemed to contribute to his aesthetic, as well: There are ghosts in Gibson's machine, intense and unlike anything you've heard in a while.
