Download: William F. Gibbs -- "Operate"
Download: William F. Gibbs -- "Darling, You Were Beautiful Once"
My Fellow Sophisticates is a haunting medley that's immediately immersive, whether it's "Brother John", the song of a devout priest whose only secret is disbelief, "Tomorrow Never Comes", an intelligent look at a culture willing to trade their souls for fame, or the dream-inspired "Oh Pollyana". Call it Americana, call it Alternative Folk or Rock and Roll. Ultimately, labels don't matter. William F. Gibbs writes music that reflects his memory, his imagination, his artistry. It as scattered, sprawling, and diverse as the Southern landscapes he calls home.
