Gloryland, the latest from Kevin Gordon:
"There's nothing else around today quite like Kevin Gordon's music. I'm a huge Kevin Gordon fan. Think of John Lee Hooker tied to the hard, imagistic poetry of William Carlos Williams, and you get a little bit of an idea. It's something like trance blues, I suppose - but then you encounter the tangled, complex story lines of 'Colfax' or 'Trying to Get to Memphis' or 'Bus to Shreveport.' There really is no way to sum it up neatly - you just have to listen. And listen again. For the pure emotional pleasure of it. For the unmistakable, hard-driving passion of words and music, rocking together in rhythm."
Gordon's songs have been recorded by Keith Richards, Levon Helm, Lucinda Williams, Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes, Irma Thomas, Webb Wilder, Kate Campbell, and others. Raised in northern Louisiana and currently based in East Nashville, Kevin also earned a Master's degree in poetry from the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop.
