From: Winter Harbor, ME

Genre: Singer-Songwriter, Americana, Contemporary Folk Rock

SHORT BIO
   
Dubbed “the total package” by his fans, GRAMMY-balloted, singer-songwriter and recording artist Gordon Thomas Ward tours as a solo performer with songs charting in the Top 10 in the Euro Indie Music Chart, the Top 20 on the DRT Global Adult Contemporary Airplay Chart, and more. His song stylings are influenced by the singer-songwriters of the late 1960s through the 1970s, yet Gordon's songs occupy a space all their own and fit into the contemporary folk rock, adult alternative, and Americana genres. He has worked with notable musicians such as Eric Troyer and Mik Kaminski of the Electric Light Orchestra and shared the stage and billing with Natalie Merchant and Christine Lavin. No Depression Magazine calls Gordon, "One of the best singer-songwriters working in the Americana/indie scene today.”
