Gord Bamford

Biography

Australian-born & Alberta-raised, Gord Bamford stands as one
of the most decorated artists in Canadian country music with
an impressive 24 Canadian Country Music Association
(CCMA) awards, multi JUNO nominations and the only two-time
winner out of Nashville’s Country Music Association
(CMA) receiving the 2013 & 2015 CMA Global Country
Artist award. But it is his distinctive sound and songwriting
ability that defines Gord Bamford as one of country music’s
best neotraditional artists and like so many others that have
come before him; Bamford is not an overnight success. He has
spent the better part of the last 20 years honing his craft,
working to get where he is today.

Bamford’s eighth studio album Neon Smoke is set to be
released in early 2018 and follows his Tin Roof album, winner
of the 2016 CCMA Album of The Year. Tin Roof nominated for
the 2016 JUNO Country Album of The Year follows the Juno
Nominated Country Junkie album and it’s #1 Billboard hit
song ‘When Your Lips are so Close’. The 3-time CCMA ‘Male
Artist of the Year’ once again collaborates with distinguished
songwriter/producer Phil O’Donnell (Blake Shelton, Tyler Farr,
George Strait). “Phil and I instantly connected in the studio.
Working with him really brought a fresh, new sound to this
album and I'm really proud of the results,” said Gord. “Phil is
truly a genius in the studio. I’m looking forward to getting out
on the road and playing this new material live.

Gord is a man who believes with his whole heart in giving back.
The Gord Bamford Charitable Foundation has generated over
$3 million since its inception in 2008 for children’s charities
such as the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Ronald McDonald House,
Big Brothers & Big Sisters, numerous children's hospitals
across Canada and MUSICOUNTS. “Those organizations have
had an impact on my life and that's why we do what we do. It's
always great to get out, play music, be on stage and wake up
every morning loving what I do. But probably the greatest
thing I get to do is interact with a lot of these children and try
to make a difference in their lives. It's hard to comprehend but
it's an awesome thing to see a kid's face light up who is really
sick and all he wants to do is go to Disneyland. It puts it all into
perspective as to why I think God put me on earth to do what I
do because it's helping other people.”

That humble, likable approach is what continues to draw
legions of new fans to Gord Bamford. But it’s the music that
keeps them loyal. Gord Bamford has the amazing ability to
evolve, sense where his fans want to go, and take us all along
with him.
