More Info:

John Gorka is back with Bright Side of Down! The record is a rich listening experience with that classic "Gorka-esque" sound that's witty, insightful, and universal. Featuring 11 new originals and one cover, it also includes guest vocals by Eliza Gilkyson, Claudia Schmidt, Lucy Kaplansky, and Michael Johnson, rounding out this masterpiece.

Reviews:

If you've ever driven I-35 during the winter you'll be able to relate to the fun opener "Holed Up Mason City. The song is the true-story adventures Gorka had while trying to get home during a blizzard. This is the keen insight that resonates throughout the record. 

Profound, bluesy, and full of energy, Bright Side of Down is the perfect soundtrack to lead you through the winter and into the spring.
