ThGibb Family Honors Their Legacy With Bee Gees Tribute Album

The children of all four brothers Gibb record an album of classic songs for release in 2017 The rich musical legacy of the Bee Gees and their brother Andy Gibb continues to entertain millions of fans across the globe, and today the next generation of Gibbs announced a project honoring their music with new interpretations of classic songs. Spearheaded by Maurice’s daughter Samantha and producer Lazaro Rodriguez, the project features contributions from ten different members of the family including children of all four brothers - Maurice, Robin, Andy, and Barry, who released his third solo album this year.

Sparked by Samantha and Lazaro creating one Bee Gees cover on their own, and long awaiting the right time to do a tribute, they realized the musical potential here and that it was time to do something more. Samantha reached out to her siblings and cousins and very quickly they all agreed to take part. “Everyone wanted to be involved. We are all true fans of their [Bee Gees] music and there is a connection for us, family,” says Samantha.

Each family member, some of whom are working on albums of their own, were left to their own devices to create unique and personal versions of songs from the brothers' amazing catalog of music. This labor of love brings a fresh flavor to the music and showcases the sheer talent across this incredible family. One track, in particular, will send chills down your spine as you hear four children harmonizing together, reminiscent of the sound that brought their fathers to prominence decades before.

“We are very excited to share this collection of songs with everyone, especially long time fans of our fathers’ music,” says Samantha Gibb. “This has been an amazing experience with the whole family working together to create something really special.”

The album is scheduled for a Spring 2017 release. More details to come soon including track listings and full creditse

Meaning of Songs

THE MEANING OF SONGSCollaborator:Stephan Koenig ALONE (1997) BARRY GIBB: What the song's really about is that little child inside. It's that abstract feeling we all have that no matter how close or how many relatives we have or how many people around us we love, we still feel alone. There's an aloneness about all of us. That "How do I, why is it always end up alone?" Well, I'm not alone, but I might feel alone, that no one really thinks the way I do. I guess that's because everybody's unique in their own way. We all do feel the same way about most things, but why is it that nobody feels the same way I do about everything? So you're alone. You have that feeling sometimes.

MAURICE GIBB: Always with experimentation in mind, this was a fun time. The memories of this session will always be remembered. I loved the tuba and reverse cymbal effect.
