On his seventh album for Borealis Records, JAMES GORDON reminds us of his acoustic trio days with his former band Tamarack. With SUNNY JIM, the recently-elected city councillor for his hometown Guelph, Ontario delivers his progressive politics through melodies that can only come from a first-class songwriter.
Recorded in his own new studio, James plays piano, acoustic and electric guitar, trilele, banjo, accordion, harmonica, tin whistle, recorder and trumpet. Keeping it in the family, James is joined by his sons Evan Gordon and Geordie Gordon on bass, guitars, fiddle and percussion. And son Evan Gordon came back from Los Angeles where he has been active as a producer.
