Many compliments have come the way of Gary Clark Jr. including from The New York Times and President Obama, and last year he added a Grammy for Traditional R&B Performance. Clark was the first artist in pop history to be nominated in both the rock and R&B categories for his third studio album Blak And Blu. Well-deserved recognition for a gifted artist who has been acclaimed for years by musicians like the Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton. He has shared the stage with both those legends, as well as with Joe Walsh (Eagles) and Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) with whom he performed a cover version of While My Guitar Gently Weeps at the Grammy Salute to The Beatles. Clark is famed for his soulful singing, virtuoso guitar work and memorable songs. He cherishes traditional influences from the Mississippi Delta, as well as from rock, R&B, blues, soul, pop, psychedelia, punk and hip hop. Clark’s two acoustic blues numbers on the soundtrack of the movie 12 Years A Slave are worth noting.
