Christmas With The Blues, is the first Christmas album recording by David Gogo and he didn't pull any punches. The album features a number of wonderful guest artists including the one and only David Vest. Living on a Christmas Tree Farm is only one of the reasons Gogo cut this gem. The season belongs to great melodies and wonderful lyrics tinted by a good sense of humour and more than a smidgen of blues. Some say (even David himself) that this is the most bluesly he has ever sounded!
Soul Bender, had Gogo back in the studio that produced Skeleton Key and Halfway to Memphis with old friend and fabulous engineer Rick Salt handing the technology, buttons and liquor cabinet. This, no compromise, recording features a new found direction for Gogo's voice and a return to the blistering guitar solos that he loves so much. The CD was naminated for Maple Blues Album of the Year, Blues Album of the Year at the Junos and it won at the West Coast Music Awards in the same category.
Different Views, Gogo definitely had some unique sights to inspire him during the recording process, for this, his 10th album. Instead of the usual confines of your typical recording studio, the bulk of the album was once again recorded at his home - overlooking the 160-acre Christmas tree farm and forest that make up the Gogo family compound.
Acoustic, another Juno nominated album, was recorded at David's home in between his extensive touring and offers fans an intimate and interesting look at the acoustic side of his talents as part of the "Official Bootleg Series – Volume 2." The Cd features the rich tones of David's 1930 National Steel guitar as well as his 1915 Gibson and a modern day 12-string.
David Gogo's eighth album, entitled Vibe, is an all-original affair with a unique blend of songs written with the likes of Tom Wilson, Craig Northey (The Odds/Colin James) and John Capek, who has penned the hit "Rhythm of My Heart" for Rod Stewart. Vibe showcases Gogo's newfound vocal strengths, on songs like "I'll Do Anything" and "300 Pound Shoes", which on this release, match his profound skill on guitar.
The special "Live At Deer Lake - Official Bootleg", a live recording of songs mostly found on Skeleton Key, was nominated for a Juno Award in Canada. Yes, the performance did take place just outside Vancouver in Deer Lake, British Columbia.
