"We're thrilled to announce the release of Mike GordonÂ’s new solo album, The Green Sparrow. Set for an August 5th release via Rounder Records, The Green Sparrow showcases his wide range of influences in a winning 10-track album that reminds us that Gordon is one of the most imaginative and mold-breaking artists in music today. Recorded at MikeÂ’s home studio in Vermont and mixed at The Barn, his former bandÂ’s studio and art space, The Green Sparrow features special guests Chuck Leavell, Trey Anastasio and Page McConnell, Bill Kreutzmann, Ivan Neville and horn players from Antibalas.

Since the break up of Phish in 2004, Mike has participated in many projects, none of which have been purely solo. An artist known for his endless creativity and touring stamina, Gordon took 2007 off from touring and dedicated his time to writing this record. The end result is an eclectic album boasting GordonÂ’s skillful assimilation of free-form rock & roll, calypso, pop and funk that showcases an unexpected side to GordonÂ’s songwriting.

From the deeply rooted funk of “Radar Blip” to the rousing intricacies of “Andelmans' Yard,” from the spirited rock of “Traveled Too Far” to the punch of “Another Door,” The Green Sparrow is a playful album from an artist who continually reveals new layers of far-reaching invention. Mike will play select festivals this July and will embark on a nationwide club tour in August and September. Club tour dates to be announced shortly."
