GARY CLARK JR (USA)
Guests: The Murlocs + Fraser A. Gorman (solo)
The only thing growing faster than Gary Clark Jr’s acclaim - among fans, critics and iconic musicians alike - is the scope of his talents and tastes. It’s an all-is-possible reach to go with his all-embracing artistry. One day he’ll be stealing the show at Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival – handpicked by Clapton himself for an unheard of spotlight set. Another he’ll be teaming up with Alicia Keys and the Roots on a moving benefit concert version of ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’. His music is a sonic journey that is equally soulful and psychedelic. Whatever the terms used, the music is ever-thrilling and involving. His tour-de-force debut EP, ‘Bright Lights’, is only starting points for where he’s headed. He is currently recording his debut album, on which he’s working with producer Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Fiona Apple). Don’t miss this Big Day Out sideshow.
