BIO: "The Prince of Love"- IYSE GIBSON

IYSE GIBSON also known as "The Prince of Love" and nick named I.G. by his fans is an American producer, singer, songwriter & actor (Born in St. Louis Missouri- April 17, 19**)

In the beginning, as a child he began to learn to play piano and sing under the instruction of his mother and father. At age 2 being the son of a preacher, he was singing church hyms and directing his fathers choir from the front church pew. Everyone around the young man could see there was something very special about his musical abilities. Growing up, Iyse listened to and watched artists such as Michael Jackson, Prince, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, SWV, Baby Face, Boys 2 Men, Jodeci and many more! By age 17 Iyse was writing, arranging, singing, composing and even engineering music completely self taught. By age 19 he met and gained the interest of producing legend Willie Mitchell. (Al Green's Producer) Iyse studied under Mr. Mitchell whom he referred to as "Pops" for several years. As his understudy Iyse was groomed in the art of songwriting, arrangement, and mixing. Willie went on to state "Iyse is like a mixture of Michael Jackson and Prince but of today. He does it all. And if he works hard enough I beleive he may one day be where they are".- Willie Mitchell
Later I.G. branched out on his own to record his first album entitled "LEGENDARY". Iyse independently released that album and one of his first songs from that album entitled "SHOWTIME". That song earned Iyse a number one Pop artist position on Reverbnation. Iyse performed "SHOWTIME", as an opener for artists such as Tank, Glen Jones, Zap, Master P, and several others. Also, on different occasions Iyse gave back to kids by teaming up with artists such as Jacob Latimore, Cymphonique Miller, Trevor Jackson, Leigh Bush, Justine Skye, and Master P to perform for inner city youth. Through the aid of a non- profit organization Heal The Hood Foundation. Iyse Gibson has toured many schools in the Mid- South and reached over 150,000 kids together. Since then I.G. has released 2 songs entitled "The Man In Me" and "She Got That Good". Both songs reached a #1 Pop position according to Reverbnation and Number One Music. "She Got That Good" was awarded The Best R&B/Soul Song by the Akademia Awards. They wrote- "Iyse Gibson delivers a stunning and euphonic aural experience punctuated and pierced by synth stabs and a hard-hitting beat; you'll have to re-evaluate what you thought you knew about the R&B genre."- Akademia Awards
Iyse then made his international Debut with African R&B Recording Artist Artist Gustav Legiste with a song entitled "Cant Keep My Distance". It is currently one of the most played songs on the radio in Africa. Gustav wrote- "Can't Keep My Distance remains one of my best Collabs ever. Really glad to have Gibson on this. His voice is amazing and my people love him so much."- Gustav Legiste
