Description

After 14 critically acclaimed albums, countless national and international tours, and collaborations with the likes of Nanci Griffith, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Ani DiFranco, Lucy Kaplansky, Patty Larkin, and many more, John Gorka is now releasing "True in Time," a 12-song collection spanning a lyrical spectrum from the spirit lives of dogs, to the people of the Taos Pueblo, to the idea that all songs manifest in time. John says, “I wrote the title track ‘True In Time’ with Pete Kennedy. When Carrie Fisher and her mom, Debbie Reynolds, died within a day of each other I quoted lines from Paul Simon’s ‘Mother & Child Reunion’ song on Facebook—‘Oh I would not give you false hope on this strange and mournful day. But a mother and child reunion is only a motion away.’ Pete responded, ‘Maybe all songs come true in time.’ Later he wrote, ‘True in time sounds like a song’ and we proceeded to write the song long distance via the Internet.” Another special element is a pair of lost songs, “Blues with A Rising Sun” and “Red Eye & Roses” both recovered by fan recordings that John felt found a place with his more recent compositions. The album was recorded “old school” with the musicians all playing together in one place, and it's a lively, immediate listening experience certain to find a treasured spot in the collection of long time fans. Fast Folk Music Cooperative co-founder Cliff Eberhardt, who has shared many stages with John Gorka, is special guest.
