ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A rising country music artist Gis Johannsson is the newest star on the American country scene. With two albums under his belt, this hot new artist is a celebrity in his native country, Iceland.

Gis (pronounced geese) grew up in a family with a strong musical background. His father is a well-known musician in Iceland. Growing up, Gis' musical direction was shaped by some of country musics' biggest icons such as Merle Haggard, Roger Miller, and Johnny Cash. Today when attending a Gis Johannsson and Big City live performance, you will hear these influences.

Gis Johannssons' debut album Bring Me You was released independently in August of 2002. Followed up by a successful summer tour to Iceland and drawing record crowds, the albums' success continued as Gis and Big City returned to the States. To date, "You Live On" and "This Won't End the Pain" are still playing on Icelandic radio stations with national broadcast exposure.

On the heels of the 2002 Bring Me You tour, Gis and Big City headed overseas to Iceland at the end of July 2003 to release and promote the sophomore album titled, Native Son. Its first released single "Native Son", a song where high school romance is rekindled, is currently in "A play list" rotation at RAS 2, a national broadcast station.

On July 11th 2003, KHAY 100.7 a Ventura CA radio station, featured Gis and Big during their morning show where "Native Son" was broadcast live.

KHAY 100.7 was the official sponsor for the release of Native Son which debuted on September 5th, 2003. KHAY 100.7 has also featured Gis and Big City live on air

Although Gis Johannsson is proud of his Icelandic heritage, he is beginning to put his handprint on today's American country music scene. You can find out more about Gis Johannsson and Big City by exploring www.giscountry.com

Native Son is definatley an album to get excited about!!
I usually listen to all genres of music but lately I have not supported new country artists because I have not heard any music that was worth getting excited over. That was until I heard Native Son..

Gis Johannsson is definaltey an artist to get excited about. He brings all the sounds of traditional country and adds a modern edge to it. Gis has such great music and a fabulous voice all embodied in one great superstar.

I can't wait to see what the next cd holds in store..There is no doubt why he is a star in his homeland. There is no doubt he will be big here in the US as well.

Gis is heading for the top
I have yet to buy this CD but from the the parts I have been able to download it is AWESOME. I'm really looking forward to being able to listen to the whole thing. I've had the pleasure of seeing Gis in person and he is totally awesome and am sooo looking forward to his new album. I've heard some of his demo's and they are totally great. I know he is heading for the top!!!
