Event Description

Singer/songwriter John Gogo is from a large musical family in Nanaimo. He began his professional musical career with two of his brothers in the progressive rock band Graphics, touring around BC and Alberta. In 1985 John began playing his acoustic guitar in pubs, beer parlours and at folk festivals. He released his first album 'Coal & Wood' in 1990. He followed it up in 1994 with 'It Never Fails', an album with more of a roots rock feel. More touring and TV appearances followed, from Victoria to Toronto, and his music videos --'I Don't Even Know Her', 'String of Pearls' and the title track--enjoyed rotation on Much Music & CMT. The year 1997 saw the release of 'Leave a Light On', with the single and video 'Brown Eyes'.

The Victoria Times Colonist calls John "one of the most talented singer/songwriters this area has ever produced". In 2002 John began a side career, appearing in the Other Guys Theatre production 'Moodyville Tales'. Next up was the 5 year run of 'Good Timber - Songs and Stories of the Western Logger', this time as co-creator as well as performer. John released his 4th studio album 'One of These Days' in 2010, and for the first time he was the sole producer and songwriter, while he continued to tour with 'Good Timber'. His 2015 'Coal & Wood’ release is a return to his early 'folk singer' days, featuring two songs from the original album plus a handful of new originals about people, places and historical events of Canada's western islands.
