The singer/songwriter will always hold a special place in music history. They can make you laugh, they can make you cry and they can make you whistle along. It always seems that the singer/songwriter can tap those emotions faster and stronger than any other music configuration you can put together.
That brings us to Mobile, Alabama’s Ferrill Gibbs and his sophomore long player, Significant Trees, which is due out tomorrow. The album features Athens, GA’s heralded Kenosha Kid and Jojo Glidewell from of Montreal plus the expert fiddling of Andy Carlson which has played with R.E.M..
Ferrill’s Michael Penn meets Neil Finn type vocals will instantly connect on this Fire Note premiere track, “Samaritan.” The mid-tempo pace of “Samaritan” will have your toe tapping and rooting for Gibbs all the way till the end. As Ferrill whistles a few bars just over the midpoint in the track you realize that this feel good moment is exactly what you want from any singer/songwriter. Guess what – Ferrill Gibbs delivers!
