Gordie Tentrees Announces The August 18th Release Of “Mercy Or Sin”

Yukon roots music songwriter Gordie Tentrees has released his 3rd album, Mercy or Sin, produced by Juno Award-winning producer Bob Hamilton. Joining Gordie (dobro, guitar, harmonica) are long-time bandmates Ken Hermanson (banjo, lapsteel, guitar) and Matt King (upright bass). This is the much-anticipated follow up to critically-acclaimed Bottleneck to Wire (2007) and 29 Loads of Freight (2004). This album finally captures the bands dynamic live show and unique growth of songwriter Gordie Tentrees. There are 12 tracks delivering story-driven songs, edgy foot-stompers and heart-worn odes that can only be cultivated by a road warrior.

Gordie has toured relentlessly in North America, Europe and the UK, building an international buzz in the roots music world. He has opened for Fred Eaglesmith and Kelly Joe Phelps, shared stages with the D-Rangers, Rick Fines, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, performed a CBC Saturday Night Blues concert, and showcased at North American Folk Alliance, Western Canadian Music Awards and South by Southwest.

Gordie will be performing 180 CD release shows in support of Mercy or Sin all across Canada, US, Europe and the UK.
