John Joseph Gordon (born 25 December 1963) is a songwriter from Queensland, Australia. In late 2010, he released the controversial climate change protest song Australia (Whore of the world) - which lambasts Australia's continuing coal exports, and open slather approach to mining in general.[1] He has released 2 recent Albums. 'Alive in Bornheim' (2009) and 'Souvenir' (2010) - both were recorded in Frankfurt, Germany - and is perhaps best known for his song 'Inexorably Yours' which was covered by songstress Wendy Matthews on her 1994 Multi-Platinum album 'Lily'.
