Jeffrey Wayne Gibson also known as JW Gibson was born in Norman, Ok on May 28, 1967. In his teenage years he began playing the drums in a three piece band with two of his cousins and from there he found his love and passion for singing. He then entered contests throughout Oklahoma and won bragging rights in many towns and cities. Life for JW then took a different route which forced him to put his music on hold, but the passion for music was still alive. In June 2010 JW ran for office within his Tribe and is now honored as the Tribal Representative for the Absentee Shawnee Tribe of Oklahoma. Later that year the dream of singing for JW became a reality when he crossed paths with a Tribal Member who had ties in Nashville and also helped him learn to play the acoustic guitar, which only took 5 minutes for him to learn to strum the guitar. He was then asked to sing a song while playing the guitar and an enthusiasm for music arose within him that could not be stopped. In March of 2011 JW traveled to Nashville to meet with “Headroom Recording Studio” to begin recording his first CD “Livin Proof”, which was completed later that year in April. JW would like to express his gratitude and appreciation to all his listeners and to be on the lookout for the release of his new album “Livin Proof”. This full blooded Native American boy from Oklahoma is determined to accomplish his dream and wants to share it with the world.
