Gary Clark Jr. is no stranger to creating electrifying soul music, however, the attention that comes with having such a talent may take some getting used to. Not even a month ago, the Austin, TX, native captivated the media and gained new fans at this year’s CMJ Music Marathon with his multidimensional live show combining his soothing voice and riveting guitar playing.
The Warner Bros signee released his first EP with the label, Bright Lights, on August 9 and has not slowed down since. He has taken his melodic gumbo style of music, combining rock, hip-hop, blues and soul, to festivals such as Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival and Bonnaroo Music Festival. Now, Clark will be taking his critically acclaimed live show on a mini-tour of the East Coast starting December 12, with a special performance on David Letterman thrown in the mix as well.
If you have not already, peep the official video for his single “Bright Lights” and footage from one of his live shows at CMJ this year, both posted below the tour dates.
