Congratulations John! 2016  IAP Best Singer/Songwriter CD of the Year!!

“John Gorka is perhaps the quintessential iconic singer-songwriter of the 80’s folk scene. Hailing from New Jersey, but forged in the Greenwich Village Fast Folk scene, he honed his craft and persona into an unmistakable image. The shy, wry, insightful, and yes, sensitive singer-songwriter has been copied and parodied. But the old coat he wove still fits, and still suits him well. The old songs ring as true as they ever did, and the new ones are just as good.”

the leading singer/songwriter of the New Folk movement” – Rolling Stone

Gorka is widely heralded for the sophisticated intelligence and provocative originality of his songs.”
– Boston Globe
