Biography

Going back and forth across this country from the Yukon, Gordie has performed some 200 shows a year either solo or with his band. He writes his own songs, plays a guitar, uses a slide, blows a harmonica, and is sometimes touched with a voice like a bird on a warm spring morning belting out the last day on earth. He also does other things before he gets to share his music like book his tours, promote them, manage his band, radio track his records, act as an agent, road manager, publicist, apply for things, pay for everything, parent the kids and make time for the girl.

His debut album “29 Loads of Freight” was released in 2004 to rave reviews, more shows, a documentary (www.topoftheworldfilms.com) and the opportunity to munch on many a snack tray with his hero’s.

In 2007 Gordie released his second album “Bottleneck to Wire’ with special guests Roger Marin (Fred Eaglesmith Band)- pedal steel, Jaxon Haldane (D-Rangers)- banjo, Amelia Rose (Fishhead Stew)- fiddle, Aylie Sparkes- guitar and Kim Barlow- cello.

It is a landmark album.If there is justice in this business, years from now we may be looking back and talking about the recording that brought this Canadian singer songwriter to the forefront of his genre…

MAVERICK MAGAZINE 5/5 Stars (UK)
“by far the best album I have listened to for some time.”

Feeling lucky to get this far with only his fortune amounting in friends, he continues to build his burgeoning career with Canadian and US tours, festival appearances, and showcases while garnering airplay in Canada, U.S, Europe and Australia. In the fall of 2008 he toured Europe opening for Fred Eaglesmith.
