Originally from Monroe, La., Kevin Gordon grew up loving poetry and punk rock. He pursued the former academically, earning a master's degree from the Iowa Writer's Workshop. Still, he kept playing music and eventually moved to Nashville, where he's written songs that have been recorded by Keith Richards and many others.

Gordon and his band don't often play outside of Tennessee, but they join World Cafe today to play a live set of music from Long Gone Time, Gordon's new album of scruffed-up singer-songwriter rock.
