Gordon Deppe

Gord Deppe was, and is to this day, the songwriting front man of Canadian band The Spoons, a band which broke onto the Canadian music scene in the early ’80s with hits including “Nova Heart”, “Arias and Symphonies”, “Smiling in Winter”, “Old Emotions” and “Romantic Traffic”, among others.

The band’s success led to them sharing stages with internationally-known bands such as Culture Club, Simple Minds and The Police.

Although less public in the 90’s and early 00’s, The Spoons continue to perform and release new music.  Recent releases from the band include Unexpected Guest at a Cancelled Party (2007), Limited Edition (2008), Static in Transmission (2011) and a 30th anniversary edition of Arias and Symphonies (2012).
