A singer-songwriter gifted with a ringing baritone-bass voice, Ashford Gordon has appeared with various artists nationwide over the past three decades including the late Louisiana "Guitar" Red, his mentor, Joe Houston, Eric Burdon, Roy Gaines, Robert "Jr." Lockwood and Jackie Lomax, the first artist signed to the Beatles Apple Records label.
Ashford has been favorably compared to Robert Cray and as a writer offers a contemporary take on electric blues. Owing to his living in Northern California for more than 20 years, his music has some of the flavor of both San Francisco and Santa Cruz. Ashford’s most recent CD, “Planetary Man” on the Surprise Truck label, is a collaboration with his son, Gabriel Gordon, world-class rock guitarist and vocalist best known for his work with Natalie Merchant. The apple in this case has not fallen far from the tree in that Gabriel Gordon signed with German label, Soular Records and has released “Overwhelmed” in Europe to critical acclaim.
All three Ashford Gordon studio CD’s, “Nothin’ But Trouble”, “Somewhere Down The Line” and “Planetary Man” are now all available through iTunes.
