“"Few make as immediate and impassioned an impact as Gordon Thomas Ward manages to do... Evoking a heartfelt sound reminiscent of Dan Fogelberg in particular."”
— Lee Zimmerman, Goldmine Magazine
From: Pottersville, NJ
Genre: Singer-Songwriter, Americana, Contemporary Folk Rock
Dubbed “the total package” by his fans, GRAMMY-balloted 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, the Top 50 on the DRT Global Top 150 Country Airplay Chart, and more! His song stylings have been 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.
Gordon utilizes a variety of instruments in his shows, which result in a varied spectrum of tonal colors. His songs have led him to work with notable musicians such as Eric Troyer, Mik Kaminski, William J. Hall, Caroline Cotter, share the stage and billing with Natalie Merchant and Christine Lavin, and open for noted singer-songwriter Bill Staines. Gordon’s first album "Welcome to the Past" was released in 2013. His new, GRAMMY-balloted record Providence was released on August 30, 2018 to wonderful critical acclaim.
Gordon has written songs for film and historical events, is no stranger to television and radio, and performed at many festivals and venues, including Musikfest for three years running. As an artist interested in social issues, Gordon produced and performed in a Concert Across America to End Gun Violence in 2016 and 2018.
