Rising from a milieu of lovelorn singer-songwriters, John Gorka illuminates instead with his trademark wordplay, twisting, turning and tying words and phrases in the way a balloon artist creates complex creatures from simple balloons. Few contemporary songwriters coax language as deftly as Gorka. Gorka will perform at Crossings on Sat., July 13, 8pm.

For over two decades, Gorka's keen ear has picked up the stories of those along his path, folding them into poetry and song. His keen perceptiveness inspires people from all over the world to share their stories. By involving those tales in his music, he escapes the trap of introspection that hobbles less gifted singer-songwriters.

"Listening to John Gorka sing, one can get goose bumps all over. There are many reasons: fresh lyrics, a stunning emotional baritone, and his twisted humor." - New York Times

Gorka, a Minnesota transplant from New Jersey, has recorded numerous solo albums and have been features on others. Many well known artists have recorded and/or performed John Gorka songs, including Mary Chapin Carpenter and Nanci Griffith, both of whom he also has toured with. Rolling Stone has called Gorka “the preeminent male singer/songwriter of the new folk movement.”
