If you love rock ‘n roll & blues but still haven’t heard about Gary Clark Jr., then shame on you. Lol, just kidding. But seriously you guys, you have to check out his music. He is one of the few musicians today whose live performances sound as good (or maybe even better) than his studio recordings. The guy’s well-known for his impressive guitar sounds and of course, his soulful songs. And guess who his musical influences are?
“I love B.B. King, T-Bone Walker and Hendrix, but no one else can do it like them. I love to show my respect and tip my hat to those guys, but I was born in 1984. I grew up with synthesizers and weird, spacey music—hip-hop, R&B, modern rock—that I heard on the radio. That’s influenced the way I play music. It’s natural for me to go with what I feel. If I didn’t let that other stuff out and stuck to a certain format, I would feel like I was missing out on something. I’m just enjoying my ride and being who I am.” – Clark in an interview with Guitar World
So do yourself a favor and enjoy this track from the guy who’s keeping blues and rock alive.
