Bright Lights

 

The name Gary Clark Jr. was generously doused over the 2012 summer festival lineups. This growling R&B and rock voice fills all stages, speakers, and headphones (or stunningly expansive Gorge Amphitheatre, for anyone lucky enough to catch that reference). Taking on songwriting, singing, and guitar, he executes his art with confidence, with purpose, and with seamless talent. There’s endless praise and interpretation I could write here, but I’ll let Gary Clark Jr. take over from here; he states this albums intent and consequence best in “Bright Lights” as he growls to the world:  You gonna know my name by end of the night.
