Chris Gilbey OAM – Bio

Chris Gilbey was an executive at Albert Productions, one of Australia’s longest running indie rock record labels. He has been awarded the Order of Australia for his contributions to Australia’s music industry and charities, and he currently works in the science industry, researching graphene-coated materials in order to process signals. He is most known for his prior career in the music industry, and still works within it as an entrepreneur within Creative and Dreams Music Network LLC.

While working at Albert Production, he served as Fifa Riccobono’s boss. Both Chris and Fifa helped to foster bands such as AC/DC, Rose Tattoo, The Angels, The Easybeats, Billy Thorpe & The Aztecs, The Church, Stevie Wright, The Saints, John Paul Young, Cheetah, William Shakespeare AKA Billy Shake, INXS, Tommy Emmanuel, Keith Urban, Wa Wa Nee, Euphoria, Edith Bliss, and others. Chris also has experience with computer programming, and was the Senior Executive VP of BMG Records in Australia. He is as central to the music industry as you could imagine, has many more talents than you can count, and if anyone would have an educated opinion of Bon Scott’s life and career, it would be Chris Gilbey.
