ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Beginnings

In 1974 after several years as a successful secular artist, John experienced a series of life-changing events that would transform his career, his family, and ultimately his heart. Since then, he has traveled across America and abroad to bring his songs and his story wherever he is invited. In this "decade of evangelism" it is John's hope that the young and the old, the rich and the poor will discover for themselves, perhaps for the first time, the tender mercy of the God who made us all.

Born in Providence, Rhode Island, USA, John's musical beginnings were in rock and roll, blues and acoustic performances. As a young man he was inspired by the texture and tone of legendary singer Andy Williams. Years later it was Joni Mitchell's expressive vocals, melodies, and poetic imagery that encouraged his early songwriting.

During the early 1970's some of John's work was featured on an album for Columbia Records, notably his cover version of Leonard Cohen's "Bird on a Wire" and John's original composition "Take a Lesson from the Children." He opened concerts for Livingston Taylor and Dave Van Ronk and later for gospel artists including Dion DiMucci, Phil Driscoll, and Kathy Troccoli.

Changes

Following a rather dramatic conversion experience in 1974, John responded to an inner sense, a "vocation," which resulted in his leaving a promising career in the contemporary music industry and devoting his life and talents to communicating the message of the Gospel, the love and mercy of God. He now knew this unconditional love for himself and passionately wanted to share it with others. What began as a small gathering of friends for song and prayer after Saturday evening Mass flourished into a weekly coffeehouse. For six years people from all over New England filled the church hall as John performed his music and spoke of the love of Christ. He received invitations from area churches and so began the life's work of this "troubadour for the Lord."

Venues
For nearly thirty years, John has brought this message to thousands through his live performances, television and radio shows and his recordings. A member of the Catholic Association of Musicians, he has been a feature artist on EWTN's "Say Yes", Vision New England Men's Conference, and National Catholic Charismatic Conferences. At the invitation of Bishop Ambrose Griffiths of the Hexham and Newcastle Diocese, England, John and his family left the USA in 1993 for two years to work in the diocese there and beyond. While in Great Britain he performed at the Youth 2000 Prayer Festivals, the Greenbelt Festival and the BBC's "Sunday" program.

John's performances, whether in a church, concert hall or coffeehouse setting, are evenings of song, prayer, and witness. His presentations include parish missions, sacred concert ministry, renewal conferences, retreats and healing services.

Soothing and renewing!
More than 15 years ago I was a weekly attendee at a coffee house that John used as a ministry to all the hurting and seeking. My record album wouldn't play anymore so I just had to have the CD. The soothing and healing tones of these songs bring me to a place of quiet where I can prayfully ask for the healing my body, mind and soul need.

Healing, soothing, comforting...feel the Lord's presence!
This CD is immensely soothing and comforting!! One feels deeply the presence of the Lord through John's music. This is THE best CD to relax to and detach from the busyness of the world.

It is Inspiring, it is Healing.
I was given this C.D. a year ago by a dear friend... It is a very soothing time of Worship.. I have now purchased 2 to send to family that can use a special touch from the Lord !! Always..............Jo-Ann

Denise Michaud

Perfect for souls seeking a soothing, calming touch
Perfectly blended songs to calm a wounded soul seeking healing. John's music is prayer for hearts that have lost the way to pray on their own. In its simplicity it provides the path to finding wholeness in our Lord. Thank you, John.

Jim Difino

Disappointed in the recording quality.
I've owned cassette-tape recordings of Polce's music for nearly twenty years, including "Heal My Heart". Unfortunately, my CD sounded like a bad digital recording directly from a cassette. In fact, portions of some songs were slightly distorted, as if the recording level was set too high. The only thing that kept me from giving it the lowest rating is that Polce's songs are still a spiritual blessing, despite the audio flaws. And CD Baby's service was great. But I'm sorry to say the CD is not worth the money spent.

Heal My Heart
John,
I enjoy all of your music. Jesus Christ is deffinately present in your voice. I knew you when you got started about 20 years ago. You were given a wonder gift to spread God's mercy and to help bring people closer to the Lord. Thank You.

Inge Collins

Just as moving as "Your Love is Changing the World"
Similar to his album "Your Love is Changing the World." Wonderful for one's prayer life!

Dan Pelletier

Inspiring
John's lyrics and music inspire me to be a more Christ-like man, putting my ego aside and entering into the personal one on one with Him. While I have some favorites, I just like to play the whole C/D.

Jason
