John GorkaSinger, songwriter, guitarist, and pianist, John Gorka is one of the sharpest observers on the block, and one of folk music's most distinctive singers. The killer combination of John’s stunningly soulful baritone and his evocative lyrics are sure to raise goosebumps as he parlays his rich, multi-faceted songs full of depth, beauty, and emotion. Whether he’s performing an open-hearted tune 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 pose profoundly personal yet universal themes.

John arose from the same Greenwich Village folk scene that produced such songwriters as Suzanne Vega and Shawn Colvin. Since then, on the road for various legs of his ongoing "40-year tour" and over the course of an acclaimed succession of CDs, most recently So Dark You See (Red House), the New Jersey native sweeps an ever-growing crowd of loyal fans along on his entrancing journeys through the twists and turns of life. John also recently released a DVD, The Gypsy Life, on AIX Records.
