A note from Gordon:
“Hi Y’All! It’s been a while since I was part of a performance in the round, but I am honored to have been invited to join Laurie O’Shea, Annie Sims and Bill Warrington in the round at a new place called VENUE 109 next Friday, 2/22/13. We go on at 9 P.M. and it looks like we will be playing until 10:30, which is a nice chunk of time for rounds these days.
Many of you know Laurie, who was just featured at the Co-Creators’ Coffeehouse, along with her husband Sean a couple of weeks ago. Her songs range from heartfelt to whimsical, and are frequently quite insightful. Annie, of course is the Music Director at Music City Center for Spiritual Living, and has some beautiful, uplifting material. If you’ve ever heard “Everything Everywhere”, you know what I am talking about. And Bill is a dynamic performer with a wide spectrum of songs ranging from funny to poignant. It should be a great night, and what will make it even better, is if you can attend. And thank you Laurie for inviting me. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me or Laurie–one of us should know the answers. Hope to see you there.”

RELEASE OF FIRST VIDEO
Gordon has just released his first music video, “I’M STILL HERE”, a working people’s anthem, written with Marty Rainone. Though this song was written over 14 years ago and was on Gordon’s debut CD “Memory Machine”, and has been performed many times over the years, it has never seemed more relevant than right now, with all the Occupy demonstrations across the nation and around the world. You can see this video by going to the Video Page, and can purchase the song from the bottom of the Music Page.
Gordon will be doing a song at the TUNESMITHING writers show’s 8th ANNIVERSARY, on Thursday, Oct. 6th. Several performing songwriters will be brought back to help celebrate the occasion. At Casablanca Coffee, 602 12th Ave. South in “the Gulch” in Nashville. The show runs from 7 – P.M. Gordon’s time slot is not known at this time.
Gordon had the honor of performing two of his songs at the Center For Spiritual Living Nashville (CSLN) Sunday Morning service on September 14th. Both songs, “It’s Always There”, co-written with Marty Rainone, and “Are You Listening”, done as a duet with Sean O’Shea, received standing ovations. The latter is a dialogue, sung between a doubting singer and God (Sean got to play God). Hopefully, there will be a recording of the song on this site before too long.
