A name with a suffix: Gary Clark Jr.
Who? C’mon you all know this guitar wiz from Austin, Texas.
What? The MUCH anticipated first major studio album, Blak & Blu has finally arrived.
Why you should listen? Because this is just an incredible album of rock and soul music with sweet guitar licks, moving vocals and a sound that the music biz has been longing for.
A reason you’ll be excited? If you are a music fan I’m finding it hard for you to not be excited about this album.
Why I’m excited: Having seen him a couple times live I can say this dude can flat out play and wow crowds. There’s a reason why Eric Clapton asked him to play his Crossroads Tour a few years back and why Jay-Z had him as the only artist to perform both days of the Made In America Festival and why he was invited to the White House to play alongside BB King, Mick Jagger, Jeff Beck, Buddy Guy, Derrick Trucks, Warren Haynes…ok you get the point.
If you like: Rock and roll!
Final thoughts: “When My Train Pulls In,” “Travis County” and “Please Come Home” just listen to these three songs please.
