Member of: Phish

The bassist/vocalist for the jam band Phish, Mike Gordon is also a multi-instrumentalist and filmmaker. Born in Sudbury, Massachusetts in 1965, Gordon formed his first band in high school. In 1983, while attending the University of Vermont, he formed the jam band Phish along with guitarists Trey Anastasio and Jeff Holdsworth and drummer Jon Fishman. On his own, Gordon has an inclination toward bluegrass and Jewish folk music and plays a variety of instruments including guitar, banjo, and piano. An avid filmmaker and photographer, he has shot music videos for Phish and directed the 2000 feature film Outside Out. He released his debut solo album, Inside In, on Ropeadope in 2003. Green Sparrow followed on Rounder in 2008 and Gordon stuck with that label for his eclectic 2010 effort Moss. Following these albums, a busy live schedule with Phish ensued, and during this period the band began and ended each year with a set of sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden. A fourth solo studio album, Overstep, appeared early in 2014. Following the release of and subsequent tour for Phish's 2016 effort, Big Boat, Gordon resumed gigging with his own solo band with whom he recorded 2017's Ogogo for ATO Records. ~ Matt Collar~ Rovi
