Kevin Gordon – cd release show!Sep 4, 2015 | 0 comments
Kevin brings the band for a cd debut! Bug Music artist Kevin Gordon – the southern rock and roll songwriter who has been covered by Keith Richards, Levon Helm, Irma Thomas, and others and who has recorded a duet with Lucinda Williams – released ‘Gloryland’ last year – his first new album in 7 years. It’s a new high water mark for Gordon, representing his most powerful, fully realized writing to date. Writer and musician Peter Cooper in the hometown Tennessean focused on the song “Colfax”: “We’ll empty your spit-valve for life if you find us anything more stunning than ‘Colfax,’ [Kevin Gordon’s] undeniably superb song that could only have come from one mind, and from one person’s experience. It’s ostensibly about a kid in the marching band but winds up being about the heart of American darkness and the steel that it takes to move beyond.” Drawing comparisons to a southern Bruce Springsteen, ‘Gloryland’ depicts heroic and anti-heroic characters tackling choices of faith, individual responsibility, and the positive force of art.
