Admittedly, today’s entry is somewhat brief, but to the point. If you’re a music fan and have yet to do so, quite frankly, you need to know Austin’s multi-talented Gary Clark, Jr. An incredible musician, who is simply bound for unlimited greatness.
Today, Gary releases his first major label album called, “Blak and Blu,” and, from the selections I’ve already heard, this is one collection of tunes you do not want to miss out on.
Gaining comparisons to music legends from Jimi Hendrix to Stevie Ray Vaughan to Chuck Berry and Al Green, Gary’s diverse talents seem to have no boundaries. The minute you think you’ve got your hands wrapped around his style of play, the unbridled diversity of his sound continues to expand.
And, if you’ve ever had the chance to catch Gary perform live, to be in the presence of such greatness is tremendous. His performance at this year’s Austin City Limits Music Festival just a few weeks back speaks volumes for this dude’s future.
For a quick glimpse of exactly what I’m talkin’ about, here’s a few videos for your viewing (and listening) pleasure. Give’em a look:
