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 he put together with long time producer, Rob Genadek.

The result of three days of “musical commotion” with a group of regular collaborators assembled by Genadek, the songs on TRUE IN TIME span 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.”
