For Immediate Release

April 6, 2011

Famed Actress Marla Gibbs Launches Record Label and Releases Debut CD It’s Never Too Late! and national tour dates with the debut in Philadelphia At Zanizbar Blue, Thursday July 13TH 2006 for 2 shows with the Orrin Evans Trio!!

Los Angeles, CA- Veteran entertainer and businesswoman Marla Gibbs, has formed Forever 30 Records, a venture designed to provide classic entertainment to a music-loving audience.  The first release on the new venture is the legendary actress’s debut recording It’s Never Too Late! Set for national release April 18th.

The 14-song disc is in the spirit of her favorites, Sarah Vaughn, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington and Aretha Franklin.  Gibbs opens herself to her fans through classic covers, soulful grooves and original music that capture her unique and distinctive vocal styling.  Produced by legendary arranger H.B. Barnum, It’s Never Too Late! is grounded with solid performances by noted and renowned musicians and vocalist such as Karen Briggs, Dwight Trible, George Bohannon, Joel Scott, Herman Riley and the legendary Gerry “Wig” Wiggins on the final track I Knew.  Adding to the accomplishments of the new release, Ms. Gibbs penned five songs on the CD including two songs done in the hip-hop genre with producer and songwriter Amil Gibbs (Where Have You Gone? and Game).

“This is a very exciting time for me.  I’ve been singing for years in jazz clubs and on stage and have always wanted to record,” states Gibbs.  She adds, “Through H.B. Barnum’s and Gerry “Wig” Wiggins encouragement and inspiration, I decided that it’s never too late to chase your dreams (hence the album title), and as a result, we have something that I think music lover’s will enjoy.”

On the label venture, Ms. Gibbs says, “I’ve always tried to provide an outlet for quality and classic entertainment through the clubs and theaters I’ve owned.  This label is the next vehicle for me to do that.  We’re going to provide exposure that not only entertains, but also motivates and inspires the soul.”

To go along with the April 18th national release, Ms. Gibbs will tour extensively to promote the CD. She recently opened for funnyman George Wallace at the Flamingo Hilton on the Las Vegas Strip and will star in a two-month run of the acclaimed Neil Simon stage play Proposals in Overland Park, Kansas City.
