Teon Gibbs is an emerging hip hop artist and producer currently based in the Canadian city of Vancouver, having previously lived in the UK, South Africa and Angola.

Inspired by a new love that grew from friendship, ‘Easy’ showcases to listeners Gibbs’ unique approach to music-making. This is a sound that is experimental and future-forward, yet somehow also feels timeless and nostalgic in character.

“‘Easy’ is meant to feel like floating, kind of embodying the joy of a new relationship with someone and trying to hold on to those moments of new love.”

With support from heavyweight tastemakers as influential as Complex, Earmilk and KEXP, Gibbs is marking himself as an artist to watch in 2023.
