Norey’s Start Restaurant welcomes Kevin Gordon tonight to their hugely popular Wednesday Night Music Series and he’s truly one of the greatest artists they’ve ever hosted.

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!!!
