Gordon Mote just announced he's joining Paul Brandt on the spring leg of his Just As I Am 2013 Tour, which will run from May 15th to June 7th. The As I Am tour will play through 20 cities in Canada including Winnipeg, Manitoba, Ottawa, Ontario and Vancouver.
Mote will draw concert selections from his most recent release Songs I Grew Up Singing. The album is full of inspirational moments that fuel Gordon's music and ministry. Of the tour, Mote is excited to bask in some of Brandt's sunlight.
"This is a great opportunity for Gordon to increase his ever-growing fan base," says Ken Harding, president of New Haven Records. "It is truly an honor for Gordon to share the stage with Canada's most prominent country artist."
Brandt, the most decorated male country music artist in Canadian history, collaborated with Mote on his latest album, Just As I Am, which was released in October of last year on Brandt's own Brand-T Records. Mote co-produced and played keyboards on the album that featured a collection of popular gospel songs. The album was just named one of the top Country Albums of 2012 from iTunes Canada. Brandt shares that achievement with Taylor Swift, Carrie Underwood and the Zac Brown Band.
In all of Brandt's success, he understands the true value of having someone like Mote on the tour.
"I am so pleased to have Gordon Mote joining me on my upcoming Just As I Am 2013 Tour," says Brandt. "I've had the pleasure of working with Gordon over the years. Just when I think I've seen the limit of his talent, both vocally and playing the piano, he takes it to another level. He is a musical genius; a true master of his craft, and I'm thrilled and honored be working with him."
