Erin Gibney at The Basement | July 20, 2021

Nashville-based pop-country singer-songwriter Erin Gibney released her most recent single called “Easy Like That” via Rock Ridge Music in April 2021. Written by Gibney, the song was produced by Marshall Altman (Amy Grant, Eric Paslay, Frankie Ballard, Colin Elmore, Josh Abbott Band, Raelynn) and recorded at Altman’s studio, Galt Line, in Nashville. The track premiered at Americana Highways, who praised the song: “With a pop country flare, Erin Gibney delivers good vibes. ‘It ain’t easy like that’ is something we can all relate to.” “Easy Like That” is the first single from Gibney’s forthcoming EP, Rose Colored Glasses, which will come out later in 2021.
Originally from Southington, CT, Gibney moved to Nashville in 2017 and is a senior at Belmont University majoring in music business with an emphasis on music production. Gibney sees herself as a visceral Americana storyteller who invites her fans to ride shotgun right alongside her while she takes them on a deeply reflective interpersonal journey that navigates the emotional triumphs and occasional heartaches of everyday life. “I want you to feel exactly what I feel in my songs,” Gibney explains. “That has been my goal since day one.”
As she discovered the power of her singing voice during her pre-teen years, Gibney realized she could marry her vocal chops with her other natural talents as well. “When my dad encouraged me to pick up a guitar, that’s when I realized I could put poetry and music together to make a song. Everything came together at that point.” It certainly did come together. A handful of singles followed (“Do My Time” and “Leaving Home” in 2016; “July,” “Boys Think,” and “King of Hearts” in 2019), as well as an EP, Bold, in 2018.
Taking control of her artistic direction as her role models Taylor Swift and Kelsea Ballerini have done ahead of her is something at the forefront of Gibney’s mind. “Artists like Taylor and Kelsea never crack under the pressure,” she points out. “They stay true to who they are — and that’s what I want to accomplish with my career. Just having that kind of strength and independence is definitely something I strive for in whatever I do.”
