About Delaney Gibson
I am Delaney Gibson. I am a singer.songwriter.musician.lover. I’m Irish. And Cherokee. You won’t overlook my red hair. I'm a nerd. I'm eager, a pleaser, and a seeker. I love fighting. I'm stoic and hate showing my emotions. They’re on my sleeve. Playing music>breathing. A hopeless romantic who has never been in love; it happens. I am constantly feeling rejected, by myself, the world. Belief in free will (will set me free). I have control over my life. Such a mess. I fall apart so easily. I'm brittle. Like diamond. I'm afraid of dying. I will never give up, quit anything in life. Morality is a dying cause. I want to defend it.
I want to sit on the edge of the stage and sing to you. For every moment will be an ultimate connection. Balls to the walls, inhibitions completely shirked, and masks tossed. Just you and me. And a thousand other people. Naked, vulnerable, and above all, true. I want to expose my darkest shadows and shine a light on yours. On every freak, broken hearted, unsure person and make you feel at home. Because I’ve been there. Because I’m there. Because it’s the only place I’ve ever been. For the love of the odd, the “losers”. Because the world would be such a boring place without you. I will always get up. For morality, equality, health, originality, and authenticity. For what it means to be human. For the grandfather on the subway.
I will always find the broken winged bird and save it. Long live the underdog. They will always rise, for they are more powerful than the sun. “Beautiful is boring and perfect is never polished.” You will be proven wrong. Always. I will give up when I’m wrong. I apologize too much for things I didn't do. I’m stubborn, I'm witty, I'm beautiful but I don't know it.
I’ve sung with some of my idols, Barbra Streisand, Andrea Bocelli, and Barry Manilow. And have been on MTV rotation. I’ve toured the United States and Europe. I’ve been ranked among the top vocalists in the world. I am a grateful, hard worker. I want to play music every day of my life. I have too much to do/learn. And I want to fall in love.
I dedicate my life to help other people be the best versions of themselves, to helping people through their hardest moments through song, the very essence of humanity. I want people to get lost in performances, if only for a moment. Let them go somewhere else. Some dream life. I want them to lead me there. To take us there together.
I want to be a great writer/performer. Not just good. Great. I want to tour the world. And to touch people. And to be touched. I want to sing with a symphony. I refuse to live my life without hope.
I'm a singer, a writer, a performer. Never knew any other life and I don't want to. I have taken my experiences and I have something to say about them. Please, listen to me sing.
