Gordon Thomas Ward is a nationally recognized writer, singer-songwriter, and presenter. A lifelong artist and teacher, Mr. Ward's works have included songs, books, essays, and poetry; and he's no stranger to newspapers, magazines, radio, and television. He has worked as a ministry programs director for a church, a history teacher in the classroom, and as a group transformation facilitator in the experiential education field where he designed and facilitated team building programs for twenty-two years.

Gordon is a storyteller. His songs, many of which are from his CD "Welcome to the Past," inspire and entertain as musical portraits of people, places, and events that come alive and touch the hearts of the audience. Gordon finds inspiration from history, life experiences, and from the research done for his books: "Life on the Shoulder: Rediscovering the Lewis and Clark Trail," "Windows: A Collection of Verse," "A Bit of Earth," "Ghosts of Central Jersey," and "Tracing Infinity." As a solo performer, Gordon has worked with many notable musicians such as Eric Troyer, David Rimelis, and Dave Shapiro.

Connecting with his listeners in a live setting is very important to Gordon. His performances, house concerts, and presentations combine music, song, and insightful anecdotes to take listeners on enchanting journeys to other times and places. Audiences especially adore his "Story-Songs of History," an evocative presentation of original songs and their inspiring stories celebrating the rich histories and secreted tales of our shared past. Presented in brilliant detail, Mr. Ward uses a behind the music format combining enchanting anecdotes, vocals, and a multi-instrumental accompaniment to transport listeners on a captivating journey through various time periods and historic events including the Revolutionary War, the Civil Way, railroads in NJ, Trail of Tears, the Lenape, Robert Frost, and more! Members of his audiences have commented on his knack for establishing an endearing relationship with them through his words and music. "Bravo! He has one of the best voices I've heard in a long time and the instrumentation to go with it! The way he weaves events into his dialogue and acoustic songs is truly an art form and is very engaging. His ability as a raconteur and minstrel were both provocative and soothing. He totally amazed meĀ  ~ Tom Martin
