Geoff Gibbons Waxes Nostalgic on “Morgantown”

It’s been a few years since we covered anything from Canadian troubadour Geoff Gibbons, but we echo today what we said back then. There’s good reason that Gibbons is a well-respected veteran of the music scene. Crafting catchy Americana influenced folk rock with infectious pop hooks comes naturally for the accomplished musical storyteller. With his latest single, “Morgantown”, he continues that trend.

“Morgantown” is a rootsy pop rock track that fans of other such musical storytellers like Tom Petty or Ryan Adams are sure to lap up. Garnering comparisons to Jackson Browne, Neil Young, and David Crosby – among others – doesn’t happen to just any old Joe (or Geoff, as it were). His devoted fans have stuck with him and continue to eagerly await each new track and album. He may not be reinventing the wheel, but he sure knows the right way to drive it.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here and at Cinapse, as well as contributing to a few other sites on occasion. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, the 76ers, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
