New Bands To See At Coachella: Gary Clark Jr.

Published in Festivals
Monday, 16 April 2012 13:45
Photo by Frank Maddock Gary Clark Jr. hates the term bluesman. Judging from his brand of music, you would expect this new artist to embrace the label, but being a nasty guitar player is only the tip of the iceberg to this man’s talents.  Sort of like a latter day John Mayer, Clark can play many different types of guitar: jazz, blues to straight ...
