New Band of The Day: Gary Clark Jr.


Share This Article:

We may be latecomers to the Gary Clark Jr. bandwagon here in the UK, but it won’t be long before we get in line to sing the praises of this blues legend in the making.

He is being heralded as the saviour of blues, and rightly so. His ability with a guitar is beyond impressive and invokes memories of Hendrix himself. This is aided by a smooth, soulful voice that is injecting life back into the genre.

The song that has Brought Clark Jr. the most acclaim so far is Bright Lights. It is a smooth yet moody track where Clark Jr.’s R'n'B vocals combine with rough, powerful guitar riffs and fiery guitar solos in a track that is already being described as timeless.

The next song to catch our eyes is Don’t owe you a thang. It is a fast,  toe-tapping tune enthused with a 60s spirit. Clark Jr’s tight, winding guitar drives the song with all the groove and bravado of B.B.King, and his impassioned performance has both the soul and skill to match the blues legend himself.  

Clark Jr. is currently preparing to release his new album Blak and Blu next week and it may well be the album that brings blues back to the charts, bringing with it the success that such a talented musician deserves.
