Samantha Gibb & The Cartel formed their band in Miami Beach, FL in 2002. In the fall of 2006 they decided to move to Nashville, TN. In their time spent there, they found inspiration and the drive they needed to hone their sound and really get a great band together. Samantha Gibb (lead vocals, piano, and rhythm guitar), Lazaro Rodriguez (lead guitar, piano, and back-up vocals), and Nick Sallons (bass) have been finishing their fourth album, which will be released this year under their new name, Samantha Gibb & The Cartel. The band were formerly known as M.E.G., named after Samantha's father, the late Maurice Gibb of the Bee Gees, but, they decided to change their name to something they felt could be bit easier for their fans to search and find. They will continue, however, to keep the name for their production company. Currently, they are playing shows and planning for their 2010 UK tour.
