Simon Robert Gibson – The Great Ongoing

​For fans of The Lemonheads and The Go-Betweens, Simon Robert Gibson’s debut as a solo artist is like a breath of fresh air.

​In the first solo album of his career, The Great Ongoing, Gibson demonstrates the innovative instrumentals, pure emotion and expressive songwork that make Australian indie music the masterpiece that it is.

​No stranger to the music scene, Gibson has been a founding member of multiple groups including Disneyfist and Aerial Maps, but this latest album is like a lyrical memoir all his own.

​With reflective singles like Now Often Feels Like Then and raw melodies like Bourdain, Gibson’s work embraces nostalgia and tells his story while presenting a hopeful outlook for the future.
