My Music

[Introduction] [What I Do] [Sound Samples and Lyrics] [Artists I listen to]

Introduction

Thanks for stopping by to read about and hear some of my music. I am a folk singer who plays guitar and piano, and attempts to play the banjo and mandolin. I play both contemporary and traditional acoustic music, both covers and originals. I also run a small project studio for recording demos. I don't have a real CD yet, but I do have some recordings available online. If you are interested in a real CD rather than mp3s, drop me a line at egordon99@earthlink.net

What I Do

Coffee Houses - I have played at coffee houses and other venues in the Lehigh Valley and Philadelphia area. This summer I will be heading out to some open mics, including The Point, Cedar Hollow Inn, and Steel City. Stay tuned for more info!

Jewish Music/Songleading - I also specialize in songleading Jewish events. I have worked at Camp Harlam, NFTY, and local synagogues. I currently teach music and help lead Shabbat Services at Beth Chaim Reform Congregation in West Chester, PA. I am generally available for events in Southeastern Pennsylvania.

Demo Recording - My little demo studio started out in the living room of my first apartment before moving into the basement of our townhouse. Since we've moved into our house, I am now set up in the spare bedroom! It's just enough for me to lay down some of my acoustic guitar tracks. For the technically inclined, here is some info on the studio.
