Who is Kory Gibbs?

Imagine for a second that you are a musician, fresh of the stage.  Sweating and slightly dehydrated, you polish down your seasoned Gibson Les Paul, still buzzing from the positive vibes emanating from the receptive crowd.  Now, image doing all this before making your curfew so you can sleep and prepare for the next day of 9th grade!  Kory Gibbs, a 16 year old musical prodigy in his own right, is working hard to juggle school and his career in order to do just that. As that wasn’t enough, Kory learned his skills and transformed into what he is today through the wonderful World Wide Web – namely websites such as YouTube.com.

Born in Jackson, California, the West Coast is already buzzing about Kory, aka Lightning Boy and his Thundering Blues Band.


Just PRACTICE a LOT and let God lead the way

Regardless of his steady rise to success, Kory keeps it humble.
