Gary Clark Jr. is set to hit the stage at the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN. (concluding his spring tour) on April 5th to start or the three night run of blues, rock, and soul music.
As one quote from Rolling Stone notes, “Owing as much to Kurt Cobain and The Ramones as Buddy Guy and John Lee Hooker… indebted to hip-hop and psychedelia, [Clark] is grounded in tradition while standing on the brink of change.”
As Clark explains in a voice-over, “When I started off on the record, it was really about the drums. If the drums aren’t poppin’, you’re wasting your time.” He continues, “I got all the colors, I’ma paint with all of them. … My punk edge comes from really just wanting to be a punk. Reggae influence? Yes. It goes back to that fusion thing. … When I was growing up, a lot of music venues played lots of different types of music every night. A lot of influences. A lot of stuff going on. It’s in what I do, I guess. … I’m not gonna give you my whole recipe, but the only person who can put rules on it is yourself.”
On January 10, 2019 Clark announced the March 1, 2019 release of his new This Land album via Warner Bros. On same day he also released the title song from the album supported by a Savanah Leaf directed music video for the song.
