After finishing a degree in sculpture at MMU, Gideon decided to become a builder, but nipped that in the bud after 8 months because it was very hard work. That was the point when he decided to be a full time artist and musician. He became a feature on the Manchester indie folk scene and was known for doing drawings at gigs and giving them to bands as a souvenirs.
Known for effortlessly blending acoustic folk and hip hop, Gideon has a unique performance style which make audiences very happy.
Dec 07 was the release date of Gideons first single I want you around a 10 vinyl released on Get Cape Wear Cape Flys label Mannequin Records. It was Xfm playlisted, and breakfast single of the week on Shaun Keaveneys 6 music show. This was followed by a BBC Maida Vale session with Huw Stephens.

The second album Take It all (released June 2012 on Tantrum Records), shows Gideon at the height of his song crafting powers.

Conjoined with music, sculpture is Gideons number 1 passion. His work is often abstract and usually involves rhythm and processes. Its about materials and how they behave, discovering the unexpected things they can do, and always about finding ways of breaking up space and the search for a new aesthetic. Materials include wood, paper fliers, ceramics, plastic, fabric, electric cable, cardboard and whatever else i can get my hands on. Influences include Matisse, Brancusi, Richard Deacon and many more.
