Gorden Campbell has never known a time when music was not a part of his life. He does not recall when he started playing the drums - he just plays them. His grandfather was the pastor at Best Temple Church of God in Christ (COGIC), the pentecostal denomination that has brought a steady stream of powerful musicians to the world, from Sister Rosetta Tharpe all the way to Kim Burrell. This is where he also learned how to play Keys/organ and bass guitar. Church was a constant, with conventions that connected Gorden with other young drummers and musicians - Robert 'Sput' Searight, Little John Roberts, Doobie Powell, and more would find an empty room at the convention and shed.All the while Gorden was writing and producing his own music, and finally the time seemed right. After 20 years on the road he settled in to a producer and educator role in Los Angeles, turning down major gigs to make the necessary changes, and the next step was naturally to record his own album. Now he is putting the finishing touches on the album Conversations, set for release in 2020."When I first started thinking about my album, I wasn't sure what musical direction that I wanted to go in because I like so many different styles of music, so I decided to just write what I felt that day, if it was jazzy, I wrote a jazzy song. If it was soulful, I wrote a soulful song, if it was funky, I wrote a funky song. BUT it was all made with Love and that's what I want people to feel when they hear my music. I want them to feel the love." (Gorden Campbell)
