More on Gary Clark Jr.

Clark achieved global impact following his first Grammy Award in 2014, winning Best Traditional R&B Performance for the track “Please Come Home” from his Warner Records debut album “Blak And Blu,” and seemingly never left the road. 2015’s “The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim” wrought hard-won international acclaim as a critical force to be reckoned with. Throughout 2019, Clark ascended to greater heights with the release of “This Land” – his third full-length studio album, which bowed at No. 6 on the Billboard 200, marking his third consecutive Top 10 debut. The album and single of the same name attracted acclaim from the likes of The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone and Pitchfork.

He has performed on “Saturday Night Live,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Good Morning America,” “CBS News Sunday,” “CBS This Morning,” “Today,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah,” “The Howard Stern Show” and “WTF with Marc Maron.”

Clark’s domestic tours became instant sell-outs, and his international profile found him topping bills at legendary festivals around the world – and venues including the Hollywood Bowl – along with multiple appearances in stadiums supporting and sharing the stage with The Rolling Stones. Most recently, Clark won three more Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song for “This Land,” and Best Contemporary Blues Album for “This Land.” Clark also performed his award-winning single “This Land” backed by The Roots at the 2020 Grammy Award ceremony and released their version of the track.

Countless collaborations have been recorded with Stevie Wonder, Andra Day, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Foo Fighters, Nas, Sheryl Crow, Brandi Carlile, Eric Clapton, Gustavo Santaolalla and Booker T. Jones. To date, Clark has been nominated for six Grammy Awards and won four. He has just completed his fourth and most compelling body of work to date, titled “JPEG RAW,” set for release in March via Warner Records.
