Biography

Veteran Canadian songwriter, James Gordon is well known for his songs dealing with Canadian heritage, social justice issues, and the environment.

James frequently plants himself in a school or community for a week at a time, and can turn a fresh-baked, collaborative, collection of songs into a live concert and a recording!

The recordings can be sold to offset costs or even to generate a profit, or a surplus used as a fund-raiser for other events.
