Gary Clark Jr exploded onto the music scene with an incendiary debut performance of his song Bright Lights at Eric Clapton's 2010 Crossroads Guitar Festival.
His debut album Blak and Blu was released in 2012 and a year on it continues to receive rave reviews from Alicia Keys to the President of the United States.
"Gary Clark Jnr is easily one of the best rock guitarists to come along in a very long time." - The Age Melbourne
"Gary Clark Jr, is single-handedly taking blues into the future." - Vogue Australia
"This singer-guitarist may be the next Hendrix...churning his distorted strings into a euphoric moment of psychedelia." - The New York Times
"He's the future" - President Barack Obama
"There's a natural rawness to him, and the music, that draws you in." - Rhythms Magazine
"You know who is killing it? Gary Clark Jr.! Hurry up and Google [him] before you're late, because he is, like, so special,'' - Alicia Keys
Gary's touring has included the U.S. festival circuit - Coachella, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Bonnaroo, Metallica's Orion Fest, and Lollapalooza, to Jay Z's Made in America Festival (the only artist invited to play both nights) and Neil Young's curated Bridge School Benefit. In addition, he has shared stages with Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton and The Rolling Stones.
