Album Notes
Don't be fooled by the simple melodies and catchy hooks; this is not pop.  On his debut album, the piano-rock driven '8-Track,' Gilbe touches on every emotion from heartache to hangover, but his attention to craft and musicianship sets him far apart from all the lonely teen 'artists' who think it's cool to be as depressed as possible.  In 'The Artist,' Gilbe laments the growing complexity of relationships in a way that drips with optimism.  On the Coldplay-influenced 'Once Lovers,' the entire chorus is 'Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na'- and it feels so good.  And the rocking 'Jenny's Talking' is the perfect salute to the school bicycle who once-upon-a-time stole his heart and stomped all over it.  On his first record, Gilbe proves himself adept at blending substance with accessibility.  It's an 8-song party, the kind you might find on a rooftop in Boston, not the basement of a frat house.

Great Piano and Upbeat Sound
I loved the piano on this CD! All of the songs have a great beat to them, and it's the type of CD you can just put on and enjoy listening to all the way through. Don't miss out on the last track, "Song For A Friend." It's my personal fav!
