Hailing from the midwest, John Tibbs has built his success the old-school way: playing
shows, writing great songs, and truly caring about those he meets along the way.
Tibbs was catapulted into the music industry by a successful release with Noisetrade.
Through that platform, he developed an online community of more than 100,000
supporters who helped crowd-fund his independent recordings, and it wasn’t long
before he piqued the interest of major record labels.
In 2016, John Tibbs released his debut full-length, Dead Man Walking, to great critical
acclaim. Reviewers shared about the album, “with shades of Bruce Springsteen, John
Mellencamp and Creedence Clearwater Revival, the heartland rock Tibbs traffics in is
just right for the weightier, darker side of the redemption story.”
