Gary Clark Jr. Showcase

Last night NYC was on FIREEEE, well not literally, but you know what I mean.  Warner Bros. Records held a showcase for Gary Clark Jr., a soulful-blues-rock&roll singer from Austin.  Everyone came out to see the singer, and of course I felt like I was the only who didn’t know him.  I am glad I was introduced to him through this event, because his music is definitely going into my playlist.

He rocked The Darby’s stage and wowed a  star-studded room last night.  Zoe Saldana, Maxwell, Leonardo DiCaprio, Pharell Williams, Swizz Beatz, Andre Harrell, and Estelle were all in the building.  I mean with Q-Tip and ?uestlove spinning and Grey Goose and Puma sponsoring, who wouldn’t want to show up.  Mr. Clark did not disappoint at all.  He has a great sound, that I haven’t heard in a LONG time.  It is similar to that Jimi Hendrix sound, that is really hard to place into one category.  I am sure, everyone can find joy in his music.  I am also sure everyone will know who he is pretty soon!

Overall it was a great time spent and by the looks of it, I wasn’t the only one feeling his music.  Make sure to look out for Gary Clark Jr. debut album coming out on 9/11 and also get his E.P. “Bright Lights’ out now!

Until next event…
