Janis Ian, one of the most prolific and powerful singers of the last 40 years, is known for unflinching looks at taboo topics. She has worked with or written for such talents as Leonard Bernstein, Ella Fitzgerald, Jimi Hendrix and Bette Midler. John Gorka has been part of the new folk movement since the late '80s, slowly and steadily carving out his niche. His honest writing and ability to say it all with an economy of words has won him much praise and his fans' devotion.
