Biography[edit]

Daisy Dern is a distant cousin of actors Bruce and Laura Dern.[1] She was raised in the San Francisco Bay area of California, and in 1991 she received a degree in music business from San Francisco State University after designing a special major to suit her interests. Dern also attended UC Santa Cruz and Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts.[1] Dern was inspired by country music, as well as more pop influenced acts such as Linda Ronstadt and James Taylor.[1]

Dern moved to Nashville to pursue a career in music in 1994. She met Dave Gibson, former lead vocalist of the Gibson/Miller Band, with whom she began co-writing music, before marrying him in 1997.[1][2] They have one daughter, born in 1999.[1]

Dern began work on her self-titled debut album in late 2000. Its lead-off single, "Gettin' Back to You", spent fifteen weeks on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts and peaked at number 43.[3] Several other tracks were included on her debut, one of which was co-written by her daughter's pediatrician,[1] although the album itself was never released commercially by the label.

Dern and Gibson have a daughter, Savannah, whom they named their publishing company/record label after. Savannah Music Group, Inc., was founded in 2008.
