I have been a huge fan of the holiday song “Christmas Bells” by John Gorka for quite some time now. It was only recently that I took the time to explore his wider catalogue. All I can say is “wow.” He is a very talented singer-songwriter who should be heard by a much wider audience. I’m sad I took so long to realize this because I have missed many great albums and songs. Maybe it is the folk music classification that I often see associated with his name that limits his exposure, but my feeling is that music like his should transcend genre. It takes a very talented artist to hold an audience with just his voice and guitar.
