Garrett Gibbons describes himself as a visual storyteller. He’s actually an autodidact jack of all trades in the direction and production of film of all kinds. According to his bio, he has worked with clients from Sony Pictures, Paramount Pictures, Island Def Jam Motown Music Group, and musicians from around the world. He has also worked with LDS musicians Colby Miller and Alma Sanjo. Garrett lent us some time to answer a few questions about Seattle-based Indie hip hop, the blending of dance, video, and music, and of course, Justin Bieber.
Colby Miller is turning out to be an almost frighteningly prolific composer, as he releases yet another album available online (free to stream, not free to download) HERE. Edit – free to download too.
He’s also released a nice little music video. Enjoy.

Colby Miller wants the internet to hire him to write, perform, record, produce, and release his next album. He’s using kickstarter to fund his next album and needs donations and preorders to make it just so. You could say that it’s a fair request since he has given away everything he’s ever recorded away for free: 2 EPs and a full-length LP last year, and various covers and demos this year. Or you could do what the business world does, and grill him for a while before giving him the job. Since it’s spring, I opted to grill. Because he is a gentleman and smart job seeker, Colby wore his interview-best. Ladies and gentlemen of the hiring board: I give you Colby Miller. Continue reading “You’re a label mogul. Will you hire Colby Miller?”
