    Ricky Ian Gordon knows the singer's voice and his writing brilliantly reflects that knowledge. The texts he chooses (or writes himself) get to the heart of each subject and coupled with his achingly beautiful melodies, profoundly effect all that are fortunate to either sing or experience his music.
