While attending college on a baseball scholarship, Gbaby front man Alex Whitmore picked up a guitar and started writing songs. When the college days came to an end, he moved back home to Nashville, TN where he began to share his songs with his dad, "Grey Wolf". The Wolfman then added friend and soulful bass player John Golemon (formerly of Walk the West and The Cactus Brothers), into the mix where they began to throw down rough draft arrangements with a keyboard as the drummer. A few months after making arrangements, drummer Lee Darby joined forces and the band began booking shows and recording their first album.
Today, Gorilla Baby has finished and recorded 2 albums that were mixed and mastered by Michael Saint Leon at Switchyard Studios. Saint Leon has mixed and mastered albums for legendary artists, Buddy Guy and George Thorogood and serves as lead guitarist in the Allman Brothers cover band "Midnight Riders". The musical chemistry from working with Mr. Saint Leon helped a sound of poetically visual lyrics, simple song structures, lingering melodies with discerning guitar riffs come to life in the world of mp3's.
Gorilla Baby has performed live all over Music City in venues such as The Family Wash, The 5 Spot, Drifters, FooBar, 12th and Porter, Third and Lindsley, Barefoot Charlie's, The National Underground, The Listening Room and were featured in Lightning 100 radio's Music City Mayhem. If your in the area and looking for a true Nashville music experience, get out to see a live show, its all about the music with Gbaby.
