Gary Clark Jr 2014

Gary Clark Jr
the next Hendrix … churning his distorted strings into a euphoric moment of psychedelia” – NY Times

Weaned on John Lee Hooker, Lightnin Hopkins, and T-Bone Walker in Austin, Texas, GARY CLARK JR fuses his deep blues influence with a love of classic hip-hop and contemporary soul. His voice weaves between a melodic lilt and a seasoned blues howl with his guitar licks dancing and dodging between and behind the beat as if the essence of Snoop and Dre loom in his head by way of the Mississippi Delta.

GARY CLARK JR exploded onto the music scene with an incendiary debut performance of his song “Bright Lights” at Eric Clapton’s 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival.

The result ? – a fast-flowing flood of fans…. among peers and public alike … with the likes of Eric Clapton, Sheryl Crow, Ron Wood, Alicia Keys, Damian Marley, Citizen Cope and Questlove (The Roots) adding their voices to the growing legions of fans. As the latter recently tweeted after witnessing a performance: “I don’t think y’all understand the greatness that is in front of you. Gary Clark Jr. is kickin’ ass and takin’ names.”

He’s been to Australia before – and kicked ass. Now…following what some say was “the most electric performance of the festival (Glastonbury)” he is sure to raise the bar for his third visit to our shores.

Funky, hip, and badass, GARY CLARK JR is a rocking soul man for a new generation.
