Rules of art were made to be shattered. When broken by accident, that’s gaucheness. When broken on purpose, well, that’s style. John Gorka’s technique breaks free from the rules of modern music.
With a tangle of songs that emotionally connect us all and leave a tender trace, John Gorka stimulates the cerebrum, keeps our smiles agile and fit and reconnects us with what really matters most in music: honesty. His atmosphere allows for the listener to feel his individualized attention, his lyrical tenderness, his care for the guitar and his true presence.
“John Gorka’s music has always been focused on the songwriting, the live performance and the audience,” says David Tamulevich, Gorka’s manager and friend for more than 30 years. “There is no hype or hyperbole to John Gorka, and he is true to himself, his art and his audience. As a person, he is solid, humble and grateful. As a performer, he has a place in the heart of his audience.”
