Several different artists go under the name 'Gilbert', though this is the official page for Gilbert linley.
Matthew Gilbert Linley (aka 'Gilbert'), is a London-born drummer/keyboard player who studied classical music and composition before writing soundtracks for film and television for some years. A debut album completed in 2007 - 'Gilbert' - received excellent reviews and extensive national radio play, gaining a digital release soon after on the Indie label, Shifty Disco Records. The music was subsequently performed live by 4/5 people (playing an array of drums/percussion, bass, organs, violins, horns, singing and spoken word) extensively throughout the UK including notable sets at the 2007 Green Man Festival, 2008 Loop Festival, and 2009 Southbank Udderbelly. Gilbert also supported Mice Parade and Silje Nes in London, October 2010.
In 2010 a new album - 'Wahoola!' - was finished. About the new record Gilbert Linley writes: " I wanted 'Wahoola!' to more obviously feature the talents of the people who have been performing the first album live…..especially Maud Waret's vocals and Brian Lee's violin-playing and zany spoken word monologues".
Gilbert Linley also plays drums in Engineers with Ulrich Schnauss.
