Gordie Sampson is a musical whirlwind, perpetually creating – a brilliant writer, an innovative producer, and a dynamic performer. Gordie's musical genius is applauded by audiences and industry players alike. From his national debut in the early 90's, Gordie has become a presence on the Nashville writing scene where international recording stars who have recorded his material include Faith Hill “Paris” , George Canyon “My Name”, Keith Urban covering “The Hard Way” and “You (or Somebody Like You)" and Carrie Underwood who hit #1 on Billboard with “Jesus Take The Wheel”. Gordie has received numerous national and international awards including the prestigious 2007 Grammy Award for Best Country Song of the Year and the Juno Award for Songwriter of the Year. Sampson’s certainly no stranger to the music scene. As a co-writer, guitarist and singer, Sampson played a key role in the Canadian Top 20 success of pop/rock band Realworld in the early 1990s. Gordie then shifted his attention to the more traditional music of his native Cape Breton Island and soon found himself working with the top traditional acts of the day. He continued to expand his horizons by working as musical director for stage and television productions and honing his skills in the studio. When his solo debut, Stones, was released to rave reviews in 1999, Gordie earned a Juno nomination and half a dozen East Coast Music and Music Industry Association of Nova Scotia Awards. The second single, "Sorry", would draw particular attention to Gordie as a songwriter, while touring with The Rankins introduced him to new audiences as a performer, and producing Natalie MacMaster’s 1999 album “In My Hands,” earned Gordie a new level of respect and a pair of national music awards. Gordie's second solo recording Sunburn (2004) is an intelligent, original and compelling, hook-laden cd. From the weary truth of the title track "Sunburn" to the aching melancholy of "Paris", it has been worth the wait for avid fans of this musical phenomenon. Sunburn earned him a Juno nomination for Songwriter of the Year and numerous East Coast Music Awards. Gordie is gearing up to release his new recording, For the Few & Far Between, August 5 on MapleMusic. In the meantime, listen for his touch on singles coming out by Carrie Underwood and Martina McBride.
