If you like: Gin Blossoms, Gavin Degraw, Augustana
Description: Austin Gibbs is an American singer-songwriter born in Houston, TX, but that now loves That in Mesa, AZ. Saw him open for The Maine and Augustana at The Fillmore in San Francisco in 2011 and was impressed by his performance. Almost felt like a mix of the bands he opened for, but with a larger serving of traditional rock not that unlike Tom Petty.
This Ep "Charlie" is his first album, filled with well-made pure rock with a great sense of soul and a certain dose of blues. Think also that you can mention an artist Gavin Degraw as the two are very similar in Austin most playful moments.
So if you like this type of rock, Austin Gibbs debut album is definitely worth checking up with really good songs and in a varied format.
Highlights: "La La La", " Sierra The Serial Killer", "Wolf Mountain"
