Kevin Gordon’s voice made from dust and red clay. And the songs on the Louisiana-born performer’s sweeping new album Gloryland are chiseled from the bedrock of life — the honest facts of rambling, needing, loving, soul-searching and experience.
“I like the unfinished ending — the story that just continues when the song’s over,” says Gordon. “Life never sums itself up in three-and-a-half minutes, and a good song doesn’t need to do that either. But it should tell a story.”
Gloryland earned critical raves from the NY Times, Rolling Stone, USA Today, and others. His songs have been recorded by Keith Richards, Levon Helm, Irma Thomas, & most recently, Hard Working Americans. The title track from his Down to the Well CD, a duet w/Lucinda Williams, was featured on the Oxford American Southern Music Sampler.
Music starts at 9pm but get there early because this is going to be a great evening of music!!!
