Gord Bamford

Assistance from the Radio Starmaker Fund has provided essential contribution to Gord’s career and was crucial to the current success of his latest release “Day Job”. Tour funding from Starmaker helped enable a cross-country tour for the new album, leading to increased radio play and recognition from a growing fan base. As a result, “Day Job” dominated the 2010 CCMA’s with five awards. Gord’s dream of creating music while giving back to the community has been made possible with ongoing support from the Radio Starmaker Fund.
