Gary Clarke Jr. (#1004H) Duration: 56:46 STEREO TVG

Austin native and blues phenomenon Gary Clarke Jr. has been touring the US since 2010, but he first picked up a guitar at age 12. By the time he was 15, he was a regular playing stages on Austin's famous 6th street after being discovered by local promoter Clifford Antone. Clarke released independent albums from 2005-2010, until he caught the attention of Eric Clapton, and was signed to Warner Music Group. His latest album, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, a tribute to his southern roots, was released in September 2015. Clarke takes the stage in a February 2016 taping for Live from the Artists Den's 10th season.
