This self-taught singer/songwriter was born in Cleveland, Ohio, where
at the age of 13 he picked up a guitar at a garage sale and learned
how to play without the aid of one lesson. TWelve years later,
his melodic sound accompanied with a scratchy and soulful voice are
direct influces from some of his favorite artists; Nick Drake, Ben
Giburt, and Ugly Cassanova.
He recently recorded his fist EP, entitled "Faithful Fools", which
was produced by Jason Vanhoose at Boocoo Records. Gordon enjoys
creating thought provoking and original lyrics, which is a theme
in the music that he creates. He avoids doing covers, and instead
concentrates on writing his own music, saturating honesty and
intimacy into each song so that they become personal to him, which in
turn make his music better. Singer/songwriters he enjoys now include
David Bazan and Devendtra Banhardt.
Gordon Robertson currently resides in Chicago, Illinois.
