Gordon Free Band

Gordon Free, aka DJ Free, blends acoustic guitar and lush vocals with electronic grooves and live instrumentation. (At age 27 he won Best IMAX Score for “Extreme.”) With over 20 independent and major label CD releases Gordon Free incorporates DJ beats and eclectic instrumentation which includes electric bass & guitar, acoustic piano, organ, keys, flute, sax, cello and live drums. This music is anchored by what is considered the most important ingredient in popular music which is strong song writing, powerful hooks and thought provoking lyrics.
