Hello I am Stephen Michael Gibb, and I was previously signed to Gizmo Records thru the 90's and when the label went out of business I decided that I was going to release the material on my label under the name "The Stephan Michael Band". We are living in some deeply troubled times and I find myself asking where are the things that are real and what can we believe in, the answer is troubling and telling on the times we are in as a world. I make sure that as a person and as an artist I always reflect who I am and what I believe and most of all I am true to my heart and believe that we all have more in common than we disagree. I want you all to know that you can count on me to be a genuine and real force that speaks with conviction and has a deep respect for all people and all walks of life. All these songs are deep and personal and were painful to write because they expose the caring side and the love I have and the hunger I have to search for the truth.As a guitarist, songwriter, singer, publisher, and record company owner I started out playing guitar in 1981 and started writing and recording material in the early 90s. I have always loved to tackle subjects that are difficult for people to think about, I believe that as an artist I have a responsibility to be as real and truthful about who I am and what I believe. I truly believe that we are here one time and we better get it right the first time because we don't get to re-play our lives. One of the things that I really love about this music is that I can work with all kinds of fantastic studio musicians that compliment my music and that is very rewarding and allows me to grow as a musician and broaden my musicial horizons. I am marketing this music and in time will be developing a live band to promote the material but as a record label owner the music promotion and marketing to radio stations and media is first and foremost a priority in developing a fanbase. As an artist I look upon everyone with affection and reach out my hand to all and welcome you to walk thru this world with me.
I recently had the opportunity to meet Stephen Michael Gibb and learned about the man behind the music, I was really impressed. The honesty and sincerety behind the music and lyrics is refresing, I recently heard the new track " Search The Horizon" and was blow away. Check out this artist and support him, he is the real deal and worth supporting.

I am blown away about this music, the sencerity and honesty in the music and the story behind it brought tears to my eyes. I had come to the conclusion that good music was gone, but I was wrong and now am a huge fan of " The Stephan Michael Band"

I knew very little about "The Stephan Michael Band" until I received a freinds request thue my social networking site and I listened to and really enjoyed the music and the man behind it all. The Painful Truth is a cutting edge ,deep reflective track that made me at pause a moment and think about life and where I stand. I am planning on checking out the first release "Conscious Contact" and if those tracks are anything like this track I know I will enjoy it as well. Check out this artist,enjoy the music and show support if you like it.
