Bio

Dan Gordon spent his formative years in a logging camp in northern Ontario. Living with his father and learning the trade of the Gordon men. He spent his evenings sitting around the fire and listening to the other men sing songs of hardship, work, women and hope. After an incident at camp on Dan's 18th birthday he packed up and moved to the city to forget logging all together. Thankfully he brought those songs with him…

The life that Dan breathes into his music comes from his own state of being; a simple man (steak medium rare, mushrooms, hold the onions please) who recognizes and understands the complexities of human existence. His inspiration is drawn from the goodness of a brown paper bag, the curves in a women’s body, the stale scent of an overflowing ashtray and the balance he seeks between the rush of the city and the quiet of nature.

He would testify that his most obvious influences come from the great Neil Young and infamous “lover/fighter” Hawksley Workman. Impervious to his own history Dan proudly carries the flame of his forefathers and respectfully pays tribute to them with each performance; especially those that take place underneath a gibbous moon.

When you listen to Dan you are invited into his world. His song “What about you” seems like a simple question but demands a brutally honest answer as he compares his own purpose for being against that of your own. “Rock and Roll” is an reminiscent of cheap beer, names you’ll never remember and nights that should have ended hours ago. It’s best to hear this one live. “The City” identifies a void that companions go through when they are caught up in the hassles of day to day practices and begs you to just sleep tight tonight. He even has the balls to cover the Pixies Veloria; good news, it worked out well.

Dan’s perfect woman is his acoustic lover “Jenny” a steel string handcrafted, Seagull from Quebec. With a body smaller than most guitars she projects louder than others and can be found nestled lovingly against his chest and fore arm. Jenny is Dan’s diary. Each string carries the finger prints of a traveling, wayward man whose greatest gift is song.

Perhaps the only way one can actually get to know Daniel P. Gordon is through his music as he refuses to discuss much of himself in any manner other than song. Even then the message is buried in distracting imagery and creates and obstacle making it difficult for listener to decipher exactly what he has experienced. A little frustrating, yes…but in all honesty that’s exactly what Dan wants.
