A singer/songwriter famed for his rich, expressive baritone, New Jersey native John Gorka was one of the leading lights of the new folk movement that emerged in the mid-’80s. Gorka began his career while attending college in Pennsylvania in the early ’80s, appearing at open-mike nights at a local coffeehouse before eventually forming his own group, the Razzy Dazzy Spasm Band. Soon he hit the road, performing up and down the Eastern Seaboard before finally settling in Texas and winning the Kerrville Folk Festival’s prestigious New Folk Award in 1984.
Since then, he has released more than1 5 albums, and is regularly among the top performers in the Folk DJ charts. His songs have been covered by Mary Chapin Carpenter, Nanci Griffith and many others, and he tours throughout the U.S. and Europe.
Rolling Stone calls him the “preeminent male singer-songwriter of what has been dubbed the New Folk Movement.”
