Justin Gordon has spent most of his life moving from one place to the next, for better or for worse, rarely settling long enough to really become comfortable. As such, his music draws from many sources, and together they populate his songs with stories that are compelling insofar as they are honestly told. “Some people say all you have at the end of your life is the people you’ve loved and the things you’ve done. My songs make an attempt to tell the stories and honor the people in them in the most natural way I can find to express them in hopes that I will be able to remember what it was like and that someone else will feel that, and that feeling is one of being connected. These songs are records of moments that have passed, and in a futile attempt to preserve those moments in my life I can only hope they exhibit some kind of unique quality.” Gordon is currently working on his sixth full-length release.
“We performed with Justin the first time we played in Athens, Ohio and were told how great he was. Sure enough, his original songs were thoughtful and perfect and his acoustic blues convinced me he was and is the real deal. Since then, I have listened to and been inspired by everything he makes. He is a brilliant artist and a treasure to any place he inhabits.” — Scott Avett (The Avett Brothers)
