Kevin Gordon

Kevin Gordon sings and talks songwriting with your singing host Geoffrey Himes

"There's nothing else around today quite like Kevin Gordon’s music,” says legendary music author Peter Guralnick. “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." Raised in Louisiana, educated at the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, and now based in Nashville, Gordon has had his songs sung on record by Keith Richards, Levon Helm, Todd Snider, Irma Thomas, and Lucinda Williams. Gordon has now released six albums of his own.  www.sikahn.com

GEOFFREY HIMES:  Though he is best known as a music critic for the Washington Post, Baltimore City Paper, Nashville Scene, Jazz Times, No Depression, Paste and others, Geoffrey Himes is also a longtime singer-songwriter who has co-written songs with Fred Koller, Si Kahn, Walter Egan, Sonia Rutstein, Billy Kemp, Stephen Wade, Ken Kolodner, Willem Elsevier, Jim Patton, Ed Pettersen, Howard Markman, Andrew Grimm, Bob Kannenberg and others. This month Himes will premiere his new song, “A Thirty-Year-Old Fool." He will be accompanied by Willem Elsevier, violinist for such acts as Love Riot, Billy Kemp and Milkshake.
