ABOUT

Josh Gordon is a Toronto based professional guitarist.  By age 17 he completed the Grade 8 level and Grade 2 theory studies on piano via the Royal Conservatory of Music program.  He then began playing the guitar professinally around the Toronto bar scene.  During his 25 plus year career he has opened for Canadian icons such as Jeff Healey, David Wilcox, and Wild T & the Spirit.  Currently, Josh is touring across Canada and the United States with Against the Wind, Canada's ultimate Bob Seger experience.  He also regularly performs with his own Josh Gordon Band all across Toronto and surrounding areas.  When he's not touring, Josh is either writing or doing session work right in his home studio.
