John Gorka
JOHN GORKA is an honored icon of folk tradition. Energetic acoustic music that is not a trend, not a fad, but an expression of everyday life, is his trademark. John's rich baritone voice and unique songcraft weave a magical spell that can only be described as 'Gorka.' Now with this, his 11th studio album, he returns to his roots with So Dark You See, his most compelling and traditional album to date. It has been widely praised as some of John's finest work. In addition to his 11 critically acclaimed albums, John released a collector's edition box featuring a hi definition DVD and companion CD called The Gypsy Life. Windham Hill has also recently released a collection of John's greatest hits from the label called Pure John Gorka. Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed John Gorka songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith, Mary Black and Maura O'Connell. John has graced the stage of Austin City Limits, Mountain Stage, etown and has appeared on CNN. His new song "Where No Monument Stands" is featured in the upcoming documentary Every War Has Two Losers, about activist Oregon PoetLaureate William Stafford (1914-1993).
