I know this guy is kinda new to the scene, but I'm surprised he's not more talked about. I know he has an EP out, but I'm lookin forward to a full length release someday. He says he's influenced by grunge, soul, and everything in between. Here's a vid of him crushin' it Clapton's Crossroads Festival from 2010, also feat. Doyle Bramhall, Jr. This guy should be huge!

Check him out if you haven't already. This song is killer!

    :D Your Dad has taste!

    There originally was a rumor that the Black Keys were playing a few songs with him that night. I believe these rumors to be false though.

    They say every sin is deadly but I believe they may be wrong...I'm guilty of all seven and I don't feel too bad at all

  • That's some funky stuff. I love it!

    I know he's playing Rothbury in MI at the end of June. Really hoping he comes across Lake MIchigan to Milwaukee for Summerfest.

    I never heard of these guys until i saw them at the Orion Music Festival this past weekend. Only caught half their set though, but they were real good. Reminded me of the Black Keys a lot :thumbup:

    I'm a fan. His rendition of "Third Stone From The Sun" is outstanding.

    Discovered him fairly recently, too, and DAMN he is good! He's having a free Central Park SummerStage show on July 28th with another awesome band called GIVERS. Hope I can check that out! :)

    Just finished watching his set from MIA. Man, he's got a lot of talent. Plays with a soul that reaches forever.

    Looking forward to Gary Clark Jr's full album coming out in October, for sure.

    I got to watch him right up front from the rail and he was one of my absolute favorite sets at Coachella this year. Can't wait for his album. While his EP solo version of "When My Train Pulls In" is phenomenal, I can't wait for the full electric version. Such a great song.

    If anybody in LA finds themselves with an extra ticket to any of Gary's 3 Troubadour shows, I'll gladly take it off your hands. While trying to rally my brother into going, the shows sold out. :(

    Thanks!

    New album streaming on iTunes. Kinda all over the place stylistically, but I like what I've heard so far. Still blown away by "When My Train Pulls In," which he opened with at Coachella.
