Gord Bamford’s New Album: Neon Smoke

Gord Bamford's new album Neon Smoke

On January 19th, 2018 Gord Bamford released his latest album titled Neon Smoke. This album features 15 brand new singles and features artists such as Jim Cuddy and Tracy Lawrence.

Neon Smoke is a Gord Bamford album through and through with familiar melodies, lyrics and sound. If you’re a Gord Bamford fan, you’re going to love all 15 tracks. It’s very reminiscent of his last three albums: Tin Roof, Country Junkie, and Is It Friday Yet?

The risk with this album is that it likely won’t do much to attract new fans to the Gord Bamford army, or convert those who sit in the middle of his fandom (those who don’t love him, don’t hate him).  That being said, his fans are fierce and are so supportive of him and his career – so really, why try to fix something that ain’t broke?

The title track Neon Smoke is definitely the standout single and will likely do well for him in terms of airplay and fan support. Another notable track is Ain’t It Grand featuring Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy. It’s a bit of a Canadian anthem that pegs Canada versus the US with lyrics like “Couple Tims’ in the console”, “We got the Blue Jays”, and “We got the strongest beer”. It’s a fun song, and will be fun to play at your Canada Day party this year.

In country music, the Front Porch has long been a place of reflection. A place where you can look at the life you have inside that front door. A place where time almost seems to stand still, where you can get away. It’s also a place where you can go to observe the world as it passes by you. To think about your place out there beyond the driveway.
