Ian Patrick Gibb's, The Time of Year for Miracles, features not only old time favorites such as O Holy Night, Christmas Waltz and I'll Be Home for Christmas, but also includes original music penned by music producer Rick McKee. Will Curry, Ian Patrick Gibb's music director for the EP describes The Time of Year for Miracles as "a perfect cross section of the Christmas repertoire. We've got secular and religious, musical theater and jazz, and two never-before heard originals." The EP showcases Gibb's exceptional, melodic tenor voice that has been hailed as "beautiful bright" by TheaterMania.com and "filled with ethereal beauty" by BayAreaPlays.com. Katie Wilcoxson lends her extraordinary vocal talents to the original duet, Grateful which smoothly melds Wilcoxson's contemporary style with Gibb's traditional sensibility. Also featured of the EP is the dynamic vocalist Michelle Amato whose naturally pure, gifted voice provides the perfect backup for Gibb's Christmas Waltz giving the classic song a new, jazzy flare.

"...indelibly beautiful, heatbreaking...this collection does everything to contribute to a heatwarming Christmas"
"With strong storytelling qualities, stirring music, and the powerful voices...seems to have been plucked from a masterpiece of a Broadway score"
Ian Patrick Gibb's debut album Fill in the Words is a joint collaboration with Broadway/National Tour Music Director Will Curry, the album's music director, orchestrator and arranger. The album is musical theater based, themed around the different types and aspects of love. Whether you have just met the love of your life, are saying goodbye to them, or just having difficulty expressing your true feelings, there is a song for you. Ian's lyric tenor voice is backed by a fantastic 5 piece band and the music is brought to life by the superb talent of his orchestrator/arranger Will Curry. Featured on the album is the wonderful Julie Benko (Spring Awakening, Les Miserables, Fiddler on the Roof) who lends her beautiful, lyric soprano voice to Say it Somehow, a stunning, romantic duet from Adam Guettel's The Light in the Piazza.

"Gibb showcases his beautifully bright tenor on this nine track album"
"[Run Away with Me] has the same effect on your emotions as The Notebook...Gibb's voice is absolutely perfect for it"
