    "Oh, my.
    Brace off and get ready, folks. What we have here may just be this decade’s blues guitar savior. No kidding.

    In just four songs (two with a full band and two with just his trusty Epiphone in hand), 26-year-old Gary Clark Jr. leaves no doubt but that he’s ready to move beyond the loving embrace of his home state of Texas and lay his bad-ass bluesy/soulful/psychedelic self on the rest of the world.

  • David Voigt of the Toronto Music Examiner reviews Brights Lights EP.

    The opening cut “Bright Lights” tears into the track with a ferocity not heard since Jack White III picked up a guitar and starting playing with his ‘sister’ Meg. With a soulful howl not only from his guitar he announces to the world that “You gonna know my name by the end of the night”, make no mistake this is an anthem announcing himself to world and they better take notice.

  • Andy Pareti of Soundcheck reviews Gary Clark Jr.’s July Antone’s Austin 36th Anniversary show.

    Antone’s, the spiritual heart of Austin’s live music scene, celebrated a 36th birthday on Saturday that was ushered in by a colorful trio of young Texas musicians, led by legend-in-the-making, Gary Clark Jr.

    Of course, not to be outdone was Clark, who is fast warranting the buzz that constantly surrounds him. Starting off his set with a slow, delta blues burn, he abruptly led his band into a towering inferno of acid rock and heavy, Zeppelinian rock riffs.
