Tour tip: John Gorka
March 21, 2019
Heaven has always been a fan of John Gorka, the
American singer-songwriter with the poetic lyrics and the beautiful
baritone. In fact, since his formidable debut album I Know from
1987 with songs such as I Saw A Stranger With Your Hair and Love
Is Our Cross To Bear. Many albums followed. The counter is now
at almost twenty. You have to be a big fan to buy all of them.
I am a big fan and I have nine albums. It is a bit like a singer-songwriter's
fate. She or he always adds ten to twelve songs to an - in the
case of Gorka - certainly impressive - oeuvre, but these songs
are not very different in terms of sound and approach. And in
the long run, such a musician becomes a little out of the picture,
overwhelmed by new names and talents.
when someone of the caliber John Gorka visits our country again,
that is a great opportunity to renew an acquaintance. And for
those who don't know him yet, Gorka is - besides a songwriter
from the highest category - an performing artist who knows how
to fascinate, which is not obvious. He is always willing to play
that one song that is your favorite. Especially for you.
