The Gords—Gord Maxwell, Gord Matthews and Gordon Lee Worden are an adult contemporary folk-based vocal trio made up of veteran sidemen/session musicians.

All three Gords are gifted singer/songwriters who, with their talents combined, offer a truly remarkable rich sound. They combine a natural vocal harmony with two standout guitar players and a driving bass player to create songs designed to remind listeners that it is still possible to find a musical alternative to dance remixes, samples and “idols.”

Their song Old Dreams Die Hard, from their CD Pick, was No. 1 for 10 weeks on the Roots Music Report Top Country Internet Airplay chart.

All three Gords, along with their producer Tom McKillip, are alumni of the legendary Ian Tyson’s bands and performed on many of his albums.
