Pre-Order Jawbreaker on Cello

Jawbreaker on Cello is now available for pre-order!

With his latest endeavor, Gordon takes on California punk icons Jawbreaker with Jawbreaker on Cello. The album features recordings used in the highly anticipated and critically acclaimed documentary about the band, “Don't Break Down”.

Of the new album and the band's influence, Gordon says 
“Not only did Jawbreaker's music influence thousands of bands, but they lifted the spirits of entire scenes and communities en masse. Their songs formed focal points for countless kids' formative experiences, enabling friendships and connections that would last forever. Jawbreaker's music saved at least one troubled teenage life in my own close circle and directly influenced nearly every musician I know. I am honored to be able to pay tribute to their legacy with this album.”

Don't Break Down: A Film About Jawbreaker

Yesterday (August 12, 2017) was the premier of Don't Break Down: A Flim About Jawbreaker. I am honored to have four cello Jawbreaker arrangements featured in the film.

There are plans to release a soundtrack for the film, which will be the first opportunity to purchase these tracks. I will post more details here as they become available. Eventually these (and other Jawbreaker cello arrangements) will be available on my Bandcamp.
