Josh Gordon on SoundBetter

I'm a pro electric guitarist specializing in rock, blues, country,pop. I have worked with JUNO award (Canada's GRAMMY) winning and nominated blues/roots artists. I am confident my experience, professionalism, pro gear/studio, quick turnaround time, and creative nature will be an asset to your project. Your 100% satisfaction is my goal!

I have over 25 years live performance and recording experience. My home studio is fully equipped for any professional guitar tracking needs. I am easy to work with - I will follow your direction and communicate with you every step of the way until you are completely satisfied with my guitar track. My rates are very flexible and tailored to the specific job requirements. And my turnaround times are generally faster than quoted for the job.

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 (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), Mitch Starkman (Zappacosta) and many more.

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

    Josh is amazing. He did a Joe Bonamassa style modern blues-rock style lead track for us and we love it. His tone was perfect and playing was virtuoso. Highest recommendation! Thank you. E

    Josh is great to work with, his instincts for what our song needed was spot on! Will work with him again, and suggest you should too!

  13. Review by Jason P.

    Josh did a lead guitar track for me. He quickly iterated to respond to feedback and zeroed in on a winning track in just a few tries. He made it really easy for me. I would definitely go back to Josh for any similar needs.
