Called, "the preeminent male singer-songwriter of what has been dubbed the New Folk Movement," by Rolling Stone Magazine in 1991, John Gorka continues to impress to this day with his expressive singing, sincere songwriting, and refined guitar playing. He is joined by northern California-based vocalist and songwriter Amilia K Spicer, who’s smokey tone perfectly complements the honeyed tones of Gorka’s Baritone.

As the lyric from her song “Shotgun” implies, singer-songwriter Amilia K Spicer has a thing for wide-open spaces and mystical places. Even her record label name, Free Range Records, reflects her vagabond spirit—which has carried her from the green hills of her native Pennsylvania, through the hill country of central Texas, to the mountain monasteries of Tibet. Based in Los Angeles and Austin, she might tell you she feels most rooted when she’s heading toward a distant horizon.

The songs on Spicer’s new album, Wow and Flutter, capture the vastness of those horizons with a cinematic quality, somehow sweeping us into the panorama as we listen. It should surprise no one that she pursued a career in film before music became her muse. The dichotomy of shadow and light, grit and wonder, are in the sonics, rather than on the screen.
