Press Release

Award-winning songwriter and pioneering guitarist Bruce Cockburn’s life has been shaped by politics, protest, romance, and spiritual discovery. In his memoir, Rumours of Glory, Cockburn invites us into his private world, sharing his Christian convictions, his personal relationships, and the social and political activism that has defi ned him and has both invigorated and incited his fans.

“Bruce Cockburn’s journey, both as a musician and a thinker, draws us with him into spiritual and political realms … Rumours of Glory is a highly personal account, by one whose quest for expression engages the most important social questions of our time.”
—Jackson Browne

“This absorbing book will enthrall Cockburn fans and anyone interested in the life of a serious artist committed to his music and progressive causes.”
—Kirkus Review (starred review)

Gavin's Woodpile was published in paper form from February 1994 through December 2003. Find all sixty issues here.

Since 1994 I have received informational support directly from Bruce's record label and management in Toronto (True North Records and Finkelstein Management), with additional support from Rounder Records, Rykodisc Records and Columbia Records in the U.S. and Europe. While True North Records was sold in December 2007, Bruce currently remains with that label. The paper newsletter was first published in February 1994. Ten years later, in December 2003, the last paper issue was published. This site has been on the web since 1996.
