Gary Clark Jr. The Story Of Sonny Boy Slim on 2LP + Download
Grammy Award-winning singer, songwriter and virtuoso guitarist Gary Clark Jr. will release his second full-length studio album, entitled The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, in September 2015 via Warner Bros. Records. The album is the uncanny evolution of an artist embracing his roots with a rarified grace, style, and an inextinguishable passion which reflects his vision as a songwriter, groove master, and the vocal force of nature he has become, while his guitar virtuosity already speaks (quite voluminously) for itself.
The Story of Sonny Boy Slim was written, produced, arranged by Clark, who also plays most of the instruments, with assistance from his long-time live soundman, Bharath “Cheex” Ramanat and Jason Sciba. Backing vocals are provided by his sisters Shawn and Savannah Clark. The album was recorded by Ramanath and Sciba.
As witnessed by the global reception of Clark’s first studio album, Blak And Blu (2012) and Gary Clark Jr. Live (2014), the young Texan has established himself as a sonic expressionist and guitar virtuoso who has absorbed classic forms of the past while looking forward to forge his own path of thoroughly modern music that can only be classified as “Gary Clark Jr. Music.” The direction of The Story of Sonny Boy Slim takes Clark even further into his diverse musical roots.
