Josh Gordon on SoundBetter

I have worked with JUNO award (Canada's GRAMMY) winning and nominated blues/roots artists. I am confident my experience, professionalism, pro gear/studio, and creative nature will be an asset to your project.

I'm a Toronto based guitarist with over 25 years live performance and recording experience. I have opened for Canadian blues-rock legends Jeff Healey, David Wilcox, and Toney "Wild T" Springer (David Bowie).

I have recorded or performed with JUNO and Maple Blues award winners/nominees such as: Jack de Keyzer (Etta James, Ronnie Hawkins), Alec Fraser (Jeff Healey), Gary Kendall (Downchild Blues Band), James Gray (Blue Rodeo), Travis Colby (Roomful of Blues), Stan Miczek (Sass Jordan), Steve Pelletier (Colin James), and many more.

Currently, I'm touring across Canada and the US with the Bob Seger tribute band Against the Wind, and also performing locally with my own group.
