ABOUT THE SONG ~ From Gordon ~ “May 4th will mark the 50th anniversary of the Kent State massacre when 4 unarmed students were shot and killed, and 9 others wounded, by national guardsmen. Many of us have seen the photos. It was a turning point. I was 11 at the time and have since felt a need to memorialize the students who died and also remark on the impact it had on the soldiers. "Four Angels" is the result of this need. It's also the song I am most proud of writing to date.”
"Four Angels" is the second single released, with “Désirée" was released January 31, 2020. Most of us have had them, those relationships about which we were warned that turn out exactly as predicted. READ MORE HERE
A third single release “Still Calling” is slated for release March 13 and his double album "Eiderdown" will be released April 1 via Trespass Music.
Sounds Like/Influenced By - If one were to take bits of Neil Young, Dan Fogelberg, Joni Mitchell, and Jackson Brown and blend them together, you would have a good idea what Gordon’s sound is like.
Grammy-balloted singer-songwriter, recording artist, author, and speaker GORDON THOMAS WARD is back with a new, double record titled Eiderdown that transcends the here and now to take listeners on a sonic journey through scenes of life both seen and unseen, yet passionately felt with the heart. Set in the folk rock genre, the record supports a variety of emotions and moods. Dubbed “the total package” by his fans, Gordon Thomas Ward tours as a charting solo performer. His song stylings have been influenced by the singer-songwriters of the late 1960s through the 1970s, yet they occupy a space all their own filled with honesty, emotion, and the occasional political commentary. His music has led him to work with notable musicians such as Eric Troyer and Mik Kaminski (Electric Light Orchestra, ELO II, and The Orchestra) and share the stage and billing with Natalie Merchant, Christine Lavin, and others.
All songs on the album are written by Gordon Thomas Ward.
Produced by Eric Troyer and Gordon Thomas Ward. Recorded and mixed by Eric Troyer at Charlestown Road Studios, Hampton, NJ. Mastered by Paul Wickliffe at Skyline Productions, South Orange, NJ.
