Gary Clark Jr. What a Glorious Day We Live in.

To those of us who are aware of modern blues artists, Gary Clark Jr presents the freshest sounds since Stevie Ray Vaughan, and although he has slowly been building up a substantial fan base over the past three years, he has over the past year, truely became a brilliant artist in his own right.

As a guitarist there are none who can equal him, in his age range. He has been showered by compliments by a heap of guitarists. His debut album "Blak And Blu" was amazing, phenomenal, you won't get another one like it for the rest of the year.

The best thing about him? Well that's probably the fact that although you can directly sense his influence in his music, you can still obviously tell it is made in this day and age.

Now roughly three quarters of the artists i write about have a 50/50 chance of making it big time, but Gary doesn't have that, he IS going to make it, this isn't optimism, this is realism at its finest.
