Voices In My Head Podcast Episode #282   : Meet John Tibbs

john-tibbs.jpg

Our featured uest this week on Voices In My Head is musician John Tibbs.

In 2016, John released his debut full-length, Dead Man Walking, to great critical acclaim. Reviewers said 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.” 

 Following the success of his 2016 debut record which garnered a Top-20 AC (Christian) single and a Dove Award nomination in the Rock/Contemporary Album of the Year category, John partnered with ToneTree and Bethel/Heritage Media to release his follow up, Heartland, crowd-funded through his online community via PledgeMusic to continued great critical acclaim. 

“Unabashed Midwesterner John Tibbs has released more authentic, epic and quality tunes in his short run as a professional songwriter than many artists will produce in a lifetime. Heartland brims with the kind of honest rock and roll that the late, great Tom Petty trafficked in, with the ‘heart-on-his-sleeve’ craftsmanship that creates an immediate bond with the listener on the first pass.” — Jesus Freak Hideout

“With the Heartland EP, John Tibbs combines thought-provoking lyrics with his rock roots style. The captivating sonic landscape will keep listeners entertained song after song, indicating good things to come from Tibbs in the future.” — New Release Today

Old Bear Records is releasing its first instrumental album on October 12th by artist Ed Chilungu.

This is a very special and unique release my friends at Old Bear Records due to the nature of Ed’s backstory, and OBR’ personal belief in his incredible musical abilities as well as his heart to share his Christian faith through instrumental compositions despite living with schizoaffective disorder for the majority of his adult life.

You’ll see noted in the highlight portion of the press release below, that Old Bear Records has a promotional schedule for Ed’s album including the release of a single named “Return” on September 21st; a written article in Old Bear’s “Bear Tracks” series to be distributed on October 1st; a musical documentary on the making of Ed’s album through a series called “Harmonized Sounds” on October 5th; and an interview with Ed on “Bear Tone Podcast” releasing on October 16th four days after the release of Ed’s album.

Check out the full press release below.

“I play music as a means for me to find communion with God. I want my music to be a means that invites others to
have communion with God too.” Meet Ed Chilungu. Ed is one of the most talented and interesting people that
we’ve ever worked with. When you sit in a room with him while he’s composing and sharing music – two things
become very evident. One – he’s a gift to music lovers. Two – his main goal through his music and life is for
people to have encounters with Jesus.
Early on in his life, Ed was on his way towards being a professional concert pianist when a set of circumstances
changed the trajectory of his life and was ultimately diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. During the process
of readjustment and finding a new direction – Ed was exposed to hearing a friend and fellow student playing
piano in a way that Ed describes as “so fluid and different that he had to know what the difference was.” His
friend happened to be a Christian, and the fluidity of his playing was attributing to something that would be selfdescribed
as a playing that was inspired by a personal worship and prayer that came through the melodies he
played. Ed had yet to experience this type of playing that he now calls “a flow,” but knew it was something he
longed to incorporate into his own playing and experience for himself.
Through the years Ed has taken his jazz and classical training and combined them with modern worship to create a
hybrid of musical expression that begins through his own personal worship through music that leads to him seeking
the heart of the Father and translating it through compositions that he believes has inherent qualities of blessing, and
healing that make up the DNA of the compositions he creates. In many ways – it’s how he prays and how he hears
the gentle whisper of the Holy Spirit impart more of God into every area of his life and the lives of his listeners.
