Texas' sensational multi-genre, Grammy Award-winning artist is bringing his signature sounds to Australia this coming April.

Showcasing his forthcoming new album This Land, out March 1 on Warner Music, Gary Clark Jr. and his band will be appearing in Canberra on Tuesday 23 April. Gary Clark Jr. is also making two headline performances at the 2019 Byron Bay Bluesfest on April 19 and 21. Declared “Best Young Gun” by Rolling Stone magazine, Gary Clark Jr. began his musical career playing guitar at the age of 12 and doing small gigs in his teens. His career took off in 2005 with the release of his album Tribute. Since then Clark has produced four studio albums and two live albums and was selected by none other than Eric Clapton to perform at the Crossroads Guitar Festival and once more at his 50th anniversary shows at Madison Square Garden in New York City. His song Please Come Home won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B performance. He’s been heralded as a rare guitar virtuoso and as one of the most acclaimed bluesmen of his generation, collaborating and performing with a myriad of today's greatest musical artists including The Rolling Stones, Beyoncé, Foo Fighters, Eric Clapton, Nas, and Booker T Jones. His album “Live North America 2016” was described as being driven by a pure, soulful and devotional spirit – likely an understatement, given his electrifying live performances. In 2017 Gary’s released his hit single and rework of The Beatles classic Come Together – a collaboration with film composer Junkie XL (aka Tom Holkenborg) – when it featured in the smash DC/Warner Bros film Justice League. Much like the great blues, jazz, rock, and soul legends of past, Gary’s performances are supercharged moments of lightning, captured in a single moment — he is an artist who is ever-morphing and one of the truly great improvisers of his generation and our time. Don’t miss your chance to see Gary Clark Jr. fuse blues roots with contemporary soul and hip-hop as he tours Australia this April.

“Gary Clark Jr. is incredibly inspiring to me because he does what I'd like to do onstage without any effort at all.” – Eric Clapton

“Gary Clark Jr. is arguably the most relevant blues artist of his generation.” – USA Today
