About Gary Clark Jr.
Acclaimed as the savior of blues, Gary Clark, Jr. has shared the stage with many legends of rock and roll. His live performances, as well as his recordings, blend rock, soul and blues, infusing fluid guitar with a guttural howl and a falsetto trill that mix together. Despite his roots, Clark comes across as someone who is forging something unique in the music world. More specifically, his 2010 self-titled EP debuts his ability to explore various genres of music, while demonstrating his independence and distinctiveness from the heavily saturated music industry.
Born and raised in Austin and rockin’ a guitar since the age of 12, Clark played small gigs throughout his teens – until he met promoter Clifford Antone, proprietor of the Austin music club, Antone’s, which was the launching pad for Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Vaughan. Soon after meeting Clifford, Clark began to play with an array of musical icons, including Vaughan, who, among Vaughan and others in the Austin music community helped Clark along his musical path, facilitating his ascent in the Texas rock & roll scene. Today, Clark is one of the many black musicians in rock & roll who are resurrecting the blues for a mdern-day audience. Critics claim his music highlights how the influence of rock and roll and the blues have ubiquitously shaped virtually every medium of music over the past century, ranging from hip-hop to country music.
Rolling Stone declared Clark “Best Young Gun” in its April 2011 “Best of Rock” issue and ranked Clark’s “Bright Lights” EP at No. 40 on its list of 2011’s top 50 albums. Last November, Clark was also named SPIN magazine’s breakout artist. In early 2012, Clark sang on the bonus track cover of “I Want You Back,” by the Jackson 5, featured on Sheryl Crow ‘s new album, “100 Miles from Memphis.” In 2010, He was a featured performer at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, alongside legendary artists such as B. B. King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Steve Winwood, John Mayer, Crow, Jeff Beck, and ZZ Top.
