Since her debut performance at the Glasgow Jazz Festival in 2003, Faith Gibson has performed at jazz clubs and concerts in the UK and in Cologne, Bonn and Berlin, Germany and recorded her first CD You Don’t Know Me.

Faith has also studied with Silvia Droste, Judy Niemack and Sheila Jordan. In addition to writing her own songs, she collaborates with jazz composer Christopher Morse of Now Standards Music, Brooklyn, NY. She also operates her own internet radio station, Blossom’s Vocal Jazz, which was chosen Editor’s Pick on and has a loyal fan base of listeners around the world. Faith’s second CD, Big Moon, was released on June 15, 2009 and can be heard on radio stations in North America, Europe and (even) Australia.

Faith grew up in Pittsburgh and Miami, where she studied piano and flute, listened to a wide variety of music, and sang in her high school’s concert chorus. At Florida Southern College, she sang in the chorale and with the pop ensemble Southern Singers. However, it would be some time before Faith pursued a career as a jazz singer as she felt too shy to sing alone in front of an audience.

“A point came when I realized it was ridiculous to allow shyness to deny me things I always wanted. I began venturing outside myself and onto stages, first with ‘Lipstick,’ a vocal trio, and finally as a soloist.”

She attended the Fionna Duncan Vocal Jazz Workshop in Glasgow, Scotland, which gave her important tips and confidence. “I went away from that week knowing I was a jazz singer.” 

Faith Gibson�s new CD "Big Moon" was released on June 15, 2009 on the independent jazz label Capricopia
