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 – will release ‘Gloryland’ (February 14 / Crowville Media), 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. Early buzz on the album from Peter Cooper in the hometown Tennessean has 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.
