54 Seconds was born in Southern England but burst out as a musical force in Austin, TX in the late 1990s. Best described as psychedelic-pop headphone music with swirling guitar textures and freakish keyboards, the band renders excellent melodies, heartening lyrics and eerie, otherworldly atmospheres that wrench the gut of the listener. Joining Gibb in 54 Seconds are Rachel Loy (bass), Stewart Cochran (keys) and Jeff Botta (drums).
Each member has played with other bands in a myriad of musical styles. Gibb is both a music and film producer, having created several noteworthy videos for the band. Better? (off critically-acclaimed album Coma) won the SXSW Film Festival Jury Award for Best Music Video and was in rotation on MTV Europe. A performer from a very young age, singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist Loy has appeared on NBCs Today Show and had a Billboard-charting hit song in 2003.
