For singer-songwriter Myk Gordon and Grammy-award winning producer Steve Berlin (Los Lobos, Jackie Greene), the magic in their recent musical collaboration, SET FREE, is the result of a winning combination of stellar songwriting, unbeatable supporting talent, and irrepressible vision.
"The whole project has been amazing," says Berlin. "It has certainly been one of the best I can remember, in terms of everyone coming together, capturing the moment, getting great performances quickly."
In an abandoned Masonic temple in North Portland, Gordon, Berlin, engineer/bassist Jim Brunberg (Box Set), guitarist Paul Rigby and pedal steel player Jon Rauhouse (Jakob Dylan, Neko Case, Calexico, New Pornographers), and drummer Drew Shoals (Pat Monahan of Train) put their considerable creative prowess to work on 10 tracks for SET FREE.
"...[SET FREE] is nothing short of a classic country-soul tour de force."

"Gordon's nest songs ever. The new country/soul sound is perfect for his smart, hurtin' songs. A career peak."
-Stuart Derdyn, The Province
Gordon, who hails from Vancouver, B.C., has built a respected following over a span of six independent releases for having "a steady hand when mixing pop, folk, emotion and intelligence," (Toronto Star). He is an "accomplished performer" (TimeOut, London) who has shared stages with artists including Emmylou Harris, Ron Sexsmith and Joan Osborne.
