Gary Clark Jr.
The first time I caught wind of Gary Clark Jr. was after they toured through Chicago in 2011 as part of the DMB Caravan. You can click the video below to check out their live performance of the track ‘Bright Lights’ from that set. If you have a soul, and I mean a deep bluesy-rock soul, down inside of you this is the perfect opportunity to let it run wild. With solos that make it seem the guitar could burst into flames at any second, Gary Clark Jr. tells it how it is. Nothing but the real deal. No sugar coating on this sound. Usually mixing the truth in with some blues can make a person emotional. Add in some of Clark’s rock and soul and it makes you want to take the wheel and drive 120mph on the highway.
Please don’t be one of those people in the crowd who says, “Oh hey! Is this the Black Keys!?” Come check out Gary Clark Jr. this year at Lollapalooza and get in touch with his explosive rock stylings.
