Bright Lights (Acoustic Live) - Gary Clark Jr.

Bright Lights (Acoustic Live) - Gary Clark Jr.

His style is definitely bluesy. His style is definitely rock and roll. He definitely draws from Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan even Lenny Kravitz. The Texas singer/songwriter gives us a beautiful twist on his original work Bright Lights. This comes off The Bright Lights EP and it is a must have. Consisting of 4 songs, you really do get a feel as to what Gary Clark Jr was put on this earth to do. Sharing the stage with the likes of Eric Clapton, at the Crossroads show, this man is an absolute monster with his axe. It is absolutely no wonder that Rolling Stone Magazine called him "The Best Young Gun" in their 2011 April issue.

This song is a song he wrote about New York City. Many artist have given their renditions about the big apple and Clark's version is true to his soul and flair of his musical style. Get a free copy of Bright Lights, from his website. The melodic hymns and the raw power of Clark's voice enchants any vinyl canvas it touches. Seriously, happy listening.

UPDATE:
Posting the original so you can get the contrast! Different feel for a different atmosphere. Also check out his SPIN Session. Live acoustics, I am there.
