When You Sing
Beals in HispanicBusiness.com (June 5, 2013): Music
was playing the whole time. We didn't feel it was necessary
to sit and listen intently if we didn't want to, but when we
did, we were rewarded with some quality tunes.
Gorka played "I'm From New Jersey," and I shared in my wife's
pride for her home state. I also shared Gorka's bittersweet
ambivalence toward his home state. We had a nice time, and in
this case, a nice time was incredible. It would not have happened
without music, and would not have happened without the sort
of music that allows for indifference. Not only is that a good
way to unwind, it's also a good way to be pleasantly surprised.

(June 5, 2013):
Bouncing back and forth between two stages had me occupied all
day. The smaller, more intimate Grove stage kept things in the
acoustic singer/songwriter vein with performances from Joe Crookston
& Peter Glanville, Aoife O’Donovan, John Gorka, Iris DeMent,
and Colin Hay. It was definitely the place to chill out and
listen to the great voices and stories that these artists have.
John Gorka’s “I’m From New Jersey” was a crowd favorite. I also
enjoyed the southern twang of Iris DeMent.
