Kevin Gordon and Joanne Jane't
Don't miss Kevin Gordon and Joanne Jane't live at Celebrity!
Kevin Gordon’s voice is 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.
Recent Kevin Gordon Reviews:
"Dude's a juke-joint professor emeritus"--Rolling Stone, 3/2/12 (3 1/2 star review)
"Four stars. The sheer brilliance of the lyrics to Colfax/Step in Time alone justifies a top rating for the first album in seven years from this Southern-raised poet/rocker. Gordon sketches a not-so-simple portrait of a junior-high marching band on a bus trip, and every single image feels, tastes, smells and sounds absolutely true."--USA Today, 2/14/12
"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."
