The album, “Elevation,” was produced, recorded by John Dorsch at JDM Studios. “Elevation” was mixed and mastered by Dave Draves of Little Bullhorn Studios in Ottawa, Ontario. Dorsch’s wife, Dani Baribeau, accompanies him on African Djembe drum and percussion, as well as harmony vocals, on some of the tracks. Additionally on the track, “Save Just One More Life,” Paul Johnson and Bonny Skiffington join on mandolin, bouzouki, and harmony vocals, respectively.
As a multi-instrumentalist singer, songwriter and guitarist, Dorsch has crafted an eclectic and unique blend of folk rock/Americana. Drawing on influences from Van Halen, Led Zeppelin, Rush and The Beatles, to name a few, Dorsch’s diverse style creates a unique sound that draws the listener in.
Dorsch has been an electric and acoustic guitarist for 45 years and has been increasingly drawn to fingerstyle guitar in recent years. His current collection includes a 2018 CGP Maton “808” acoustic, 2018 Gibson J45 acoustic, Manouche “Django” Gypsy Jazz acoustic, Gold Tone “Paul Beard” Resonator acoustic, 2013 Custom Fender Telecaster and 1989 Gibson Les Paul Custom electric guitars.
Dorsch’s mission is to create and share music that brings smiles to faces and encourages inspiration. Drawing on the beauty of the Rideau Lakes area of Ottawa Valley and his own international travels, Dorsch creates music that transports the listener.
“Elevation,” Dorsch’s debut album, is available for pre-order now and will be released on July 14th. The single “Faith In Me” and its accompanying video is available now.
