The Saturday, August 13 show featured a visit from a real live singer/songwriter. Gordon Vincent, of New Jersey, Tennessee, and New Jersey again. Gordon released a new CD last week and stopped by the studio to talk about the disk and play a couple of selections live.
Gordon has recorded four CDs now - varying his production approach each time - his last disk, "Confessions of a Hummingbird Farmer" was self produced and Gordon played all instruments himself. The latest - "Mechanical Breakdown" - was also self-produced and recorded but also features singers and players from Cape May and Nashville. His own guitar and keyboard playing are masterful and well crafted - the 13 cuts on the disk (plus one surprise cut and a brief homage to John Cage) show a broad range of well-absorbed influences from the delicate "Annie's Garden" to the happily bopping "Happy" and the Prince-evoking "Reason to Leave - Alt".
His website provides a schedule of appearances and links to venues.
Gordon previously visited Six Degrees on March 26th of this year, along with Pete Mroz, Rachel Owen, Jim Counter and J.M. Kearns.
