ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Gordon Thomas Ward's single "How Many More?" is a call to end gun violence. In the wake of the senseless loss of life from Columbine to Newtown, Charleston, and many other places, "How Many More?" was written after learning of the murder of reporter Alison Parker and her cameraman Adam Ward in 2015. Inspired by the heartache, the song was composed on the steps of his home after viewing the television reports and reading about the murders. Gordon enlisted his friends to record additional tracks on the song on September 11, 2016. It was recorded by Eric Troyer (The Orchestra) at Charlestown Road Studios, Hampton, NJ. The song became the focal point of a concert Gordon co-produced as part of the Concert Across America to End Gun Violence held across the United States on September 25, 2016.

Gordon Thomas Ward finds inspiration from history, life experiences, and observing the world around him. His fans have commented on Gordon’s knack for establishing an endearing relationship with them through his extraordinary words and music. As a solo performer, Gordon employs the use of several instruments. He has worked with many notable musicians such as Eric Troyer, William Hall, Carolann Solebello, Emily Barnes, Mike Herz, Efrat Shapira, Katherine Rondeau, Nalani and Sarina, David Rimelis, Dave Shapiro, The Boxcar Lilies, and the trio Huxtable, Christensen, and Hood. Connecting with listeners in a live setting is essential for Gordon. His performances, house concerts, and presentations combine music, song, and insightful anecdotes to take listeners on enchanting journeys.

Gordon's passion for music began when he was a small boy watching his father play clarinet and sax while listening to a jazz station on the radio. When Gordon got to fifth grade, his teacher used to sing us songs and accompany herself with a 12-string guitar, and he was hooked. Gordon got his first guitar, a Toredo classical, from his parents at Christmas when he was eleven years old. He played it constantly. In fact, he still does, and it's featured on the first track of his CD "Welcome to the Past." Since the time he got his first guitar, he's played in different bands, duos, and as a solo act, and he now own a number of different instruments. Similar to children, he loves them all for their different voices and character. He started composing songs in high school and considers his guitars co-writers. Each one elicits different moods and creative inspirations.

He currently has in his acoustic "guitarsonal" a 6-string grand concert guitar, 6-string jumbo guitar, 12-string jumbo guitar, classical guitar, 6-string Nashville high strung guitar, an 8-string baritone guitar, and an 8-string chromatic bass walkabout dulcimer. He use many, if not all, of them in his concert appearances.
