Gary Clark Jr. - The Bright Lights

Written by Jeremy Shane on Thursday, September 08 2011 and posted in Reviews

With his first major label release, blues guitarist Gary Clark Jr. shows everyone why he's been a major local talent in Texas for years.

Gary Clark Jr. teases fans with this EP of a few tracks to expect in his upcoming full album in 2012 and for any blues rock fan it's worth checking out.  The EP has two new tracks "Bright Lights" and "Don't Owe You a Thang" and two live acoustic tracks.

Personally I loved the EP and the two new tracks have me anxious for the full album next year.  Any blues fan should give the EP a listen and pick it up and support this guy.

With the acoustic songs on the EP and from hearing about some of the bands he loves I'm interested to see where Clark's musical career goes from here.  He doesn't look like a singer who is going to be satisfied to simply put out blues songs, but branch out in R&B and rock as well.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
