GUITARIST – GARY CLARK JR

I have a lot of great friends who turn me on to new music. I would like to thank TA for telling me about Gary Clark JR.

Born in Austin Texas, Gary began playing guitar at twelve years old. He was gigging in small venues when he met promoter Clifford Antone owner of the famous Austin club Antone’s. Antone’s was where Stevie Ray and Jimmie Vaughan began making their mar on the music scene. Antone helped Gary get some exposure and get involved with Jimmie Vaughan and others in the Austin music community. They in turn helped Gary further his career. Gary’s music shows how rock n’ roll and the blues have influenced almost every type of music from hip-hop, to country.

Gary has come far for his young age of 28. He performed at the 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival with icons such as B.B. King, Eric Clapton, Buddy Guy, Steve Winwood, John Mayer, Sheryl Crow, Jeff Beck, and ZZ Top.

In February of 2012, Gary played with some Blues legends at the Red, White and Blues event at the White House. This show was broadcast on PBS and featured B.B. King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, and Buddy Guy, among others.

Gary has received several accolades in his career as well.
Kirk Watson, the Mayor of Austin, proclaimed May 3rd, 2001 as Gary Clark JR Day. Gary was 17 at the time.

Gary has also won the Austin Music Award for Best Blues and Electric Guitarist, three times.

Gary was SPIN magazine’s breakout artist for the month of November 2011.

Rolling Stone Magazine ranked Gary’s Bright Lights EP number 40 on its list of top 50 albums in 2011.

Gary was introduced on stage by Metallica’s own Kirk Hammett at the Orion Festival in Atlantic City, NJ.

Gary released The Bright Lights EP on Warner Bros. Records on November 30, 2011.

Gary has made an impact on me as well. Having always been a fan of Blues guitar, I am blown away by his performing, and am glad to see the Blues is still alive and well. Give a listen to “Bright Lights”:
