Bowing on the heels of last fall’s critically acclaimed Dead Man Walking EP, the full-length project is produced by Ben Shive (Rend Collective, Colony House) and showcases 10 selections, eight of which were co-penned by Tibbs. Highlights of Dead Man Walking include the soulful title track (featuring Ellie Holcomb); the edgy truth of “Silver In Stone”; “Abraham,” a song inspired by God’s faithfulness to the Israelites in Exodus; and “Everything I Need,” which holds deep personal significance for Tibbs in light of his struggle with a lifelong speech impairment.
Tibbs, who will join GRAMMY®-nominated singer/songwriter Matt Maher on the road this spring, has also toured with such leading names as Newsboys, Crowder, Tenth Avenue North, Unspoken, Gungor and Audrey Assad, among others. Prior to signing with FairTrade Services, he was a worship leader at Madison Park Church, near Indiana’s Anderson University. As an independent artist, Tibbs amassed an online community of more than 100,000 fans who helped crowd-fund two breakout recordings—Swallowing Death, Breathing Life in 2012 as well as 2013’s Anchor—earning national notoriety on NoiseTrade.
