Gary Clark Jr. - Blak And Blu
Clark's creative versatility and love for not just blues, but also soul, hip-hop, classic rock, and jam bands, has allowed him to transcend his own musical talents. He starred alongside Danny Glover and Stacy Keach in John Sayles' 2007 film Honeydripper. In 2010, Clark was the only young newcomer to be selected by Eric Clapton to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival, where he performed with Doyle Bramhall II and Sheryl Crow. A DVD of the show, released last November, led to Clark's signing with Warner Bros. Records for whom he is currently working on his major-label debut album. Clark's singular talent has also attracted a bevy of artist support, including accolades from Sheryl Crow, Citizen Cope, Damian Marley, Ron Wood, and Questlove. As the latter recently Tweeted after witnessing a December performance at New York's Brooklyn Bowl: ''I don't think y'all understand the greatness that is in front of you. Gary Clark Jr. is kickin' ass and takin' names.''
