Gary Clark Jr. – Numb


Austin’s Gary Clark Jr. has been gracing us with his seductive blues sound and grizzled voice for more than four years at this point, but the 28-year-old sounds like he has a lot left to show and say. He’s been hailed by SPIN and Rolling Stone as one of the young guns to watch in rock music and has helped bring together traditional blues influences and a slicker, more modern delivery.

His Bright Lights EP has been a big record and he’s built quite the following since then. Now he’s finally released his first full length album, ‘Blak and Blu,’ just days ago.  “It’s all over the map—blues, soul, rock & roll music,” Clark explains. “It’s my first time working with a producer and with other artists. I really learned about making a record. It was a really good time.”

If you haven’t heard heard his name, you haven’t followed us closely enough.  This guy is set to kill it and this album is his gun.  Check out the live version of Numb below:
