Over the course of twenty years of writing, recording and touring, Kevin Gordon has built an impressively consistent catalog of songs, a critically-acclaimed stack of albums, and a reputation for dynamic live performances that make first-time listeners life-long fans. He is currently completing his next full-length album, to be released in the spring of 2010.
Gordon's current CD, "o Come Look at the Burning" climbed to the Top 10 on the Americana radio chart, and continues to receive significant airplay at XM/Sirius satellite radio. The album made several year-end Top Albums lists as well. Playboy magazine says, "Kevin Gordon's 'O Come Look At The Burning' may be the least classifiable of the [Nashville Underground] lot but perhaps the best, with a strange assortment of swamp rock, blues and literate lyrics."
The opening track from the Burning record, "Watching the Sun Go Down", was recently licensed for use in the new HBO series, True Blood. The title track of Kevin's 2000 Shanachie Records release, "Down to the Well"- a duet with Lucinda Williams, was featured on both the Oxford American Music issue CD and on No Depression: What It Sounds Like, Vol. 1 compilation, released by Dualtone Records.
Gordon's songs have been recorded by Keith Richards, Levon Helm, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Irma Thomas, Webb Wilder, Kate Campbell, and others. His recordings are featured in major motion picture soundtracks and in national advertising campaigns. Raised in north Louisiana and currently based in Nashville, Kevin earned a master's degree in poetry from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop.
