Northwest Music & Recording (founded by Bill Gibson in 1990) has been supporting artists for the past 35+ years. Firm in the belief that it’s much more important to build one excellent product than a hundred versions of mediocrity, NWM&R provides a solid foundation on which to build a musical production. Below is an assortment of projects (non-exhaustive) that Bill has produced over the years. 

Current Project

Artist: The Coats

The Coats are the Pacific Northwest’s premiere a cappella band. They have performed for MDA benefits, the Susan G. Komen foundation, high schools, colleges, fairs, and community centers across the country, the President of the United States, and have shared the stage with dozens of acts as vastly different as Gallagher, The Beach Boys, Jay Leno, Trisha Yearwood, and Eddie Money.

Album: Motionless
Release Date: 2005

Faith’s first original material recording, produced by Bill Gibson, is a collection of songs that are sure to please the Contemporary Christian music fan who is looking for some songs that don’t sound like all the rest. The music production is exquisitely well-done and, technically, Bill has done a tremendous job in executing on the artistic side of things. A great addition to anyone’s library. The title tune, “Motionless,” is of particular importance to those who know Faith’s back story. Enjoy!
