Myspace's One-Two-Watch: Gary Clark Jr.
Gary Clark Jr., is a psychedelic soul blues rock guitarist and singer from Austin, TX. From the few songs I’ve heard you can hear and feel the Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Jimmie Vaughan influences. He’s obviously a student of his craft. But, there’s more to it than that for me. He’s 28, which would have made it nearly impossible for him to escape the influence of the hip hop and grunge music of the 90’s. He has a similar onstage power and intensity of a Kurt Cobain and an honesty in his lyrics like 2pac. I’ve been waiting for an artist to organically embody all these elements for a long time and I think we’ve finally got our guy.
