At festivals and concert halls around the world, on TV and radio, singer, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist John Gorka raises goosebumps with his soulful baritone and sharp observations in rich, multi-faceted songs full of depth, beauty, and emotion. Whether he's performing a song brimming with love and loss, a keenly felt vignette about daily life, biting social commentary, or just plain old down-home humor, John displays an unerring grasp of words, melody, and the details that trigger universal understanding.
Gorkas latest album, True in Time, (2018) embodies an "old-time" feel in both sound and method. The tracks carry the excitement of old school recordings; they were recorded with the musicians all playing together in one place, making up their own parts in the moment. The result is a lively compilation that emphasizes the musicians spontaneity and improvisation.
